Flamers Natural Firelighters are not your ordinary firelighters; they’re made from natural, renewable, untreated wood shavings dipped in wax. They are made in Britain, and due to their natural ingredients, they are odourless too.
We have found that once people discover Flamers, they do not buy any other firelighters as they are so easy to light and provide a long-burn. You also only need one to light a fire which means they’re great value for money.
All up till Christmas, we are offering great introductory prices to BigBarn members and we’ll even send you a free sample upon request – simply click on this link for more details: https://www.certainlywood.co.uk/flamers-log-suppliers
