Pursuing natural health & thinking beyond the superficial. Deconstructing Culture.

They say, whoever they are, that need is the mother of all invention. The same goes for art in my opinion which springs also from a need. Well my Mother is always creating and fixing things and she’s blimmin’ good at it even if I do say so myself 🙂

I’ve got a one of those flat candle warmers that you see in Indian restaurants which basically keep dishes hot at the table and being that we’re practically turning into snow-women Mum had the idea of making different versions for room heating, or at least huddle heating. (She made a great oil diffuser the other day out of an old bottle opener, tealight and a cup – MacGyver eat your heart out.)

You basically use tealights, put them on a plate, put those on a base pot/bowl of some kind and put a colander or sieve on top. They give out a nice amount of heat for hand and face warming and eventually clear away the condensation/moisture in the air that covers everything i.e. the surfaces/mirrors etc. Tealights are inexpensive, last afew hours on average and so better value for money in the long run than gas tabletop/surface mini heaters/cookers for heating yourself a bit rather than food which does need gas to cook in the first place. Depending on the size of plate used you can probably put 2-3 on a smaller one and 4-6 tealights on a big dinner plate.

The stains on the top aren’t caused by the candles, it’s an old sieve.

  1. Constructing a UFO that keeps you warm with candles is very inventive. Macguyver would be proud.
