Simple Torch Materials You Can Use for Vital Light

One great challenge to any survival situation is maintaining a light source once the sun sets. A camp fire provides some light, but it is not mobile, so your ability to light your surroundings is limited.

Fortunately, you do have options.

In a survival situation, where power might not be available or you may have to ration it carefully, a torch is a great alternative source of light and it is relatively easy to make.

Using commonly found materials, you can fashion a torch that will provide you with a vital light source, potentially for hours, depending on how you construct the torch and what fuels you use.

While you can use virtually anything you can wrap on a stick as a torch, these three materials are tried and true in terms of how long they burn and the light they provide.

Head on over to the next page and we'll show you what these easy to find materials are!

    Iv tested the birch bark one. I did a few test runs and I got between 10-15 mins for each. Could have lasted longer if I took more time to make them.
