- 1 tall candle
- 1 candle holder
Advice: Make sure you are in a place sheltered from the wind so that the smoke does not drift or disperse, this will make it easier for you.
1. Light a candle and put it on the holder.
2. Blow out the candle.
3. Immediately light a match and bring it close to the smoke of the candle, near the wick, you will see how it lights up!
The smoke that comes out of the candle when you extinguish it still has traces of wax in gaseous form. The wax is what makes the candle stay lit, so if we bring a match close to the smoke it can relight the wick.
