Easy Everyday Mix
Eco-Nestro are made from slow-grown pine and spruce.
Hotmax are made from the waste fines (bark and wood) left over from the manufacture of horse bedding shavings.
Waxlings are made from wood wool soaked in wax.
Hotmax are easy to light, producing a quick heat with an excellent flame. They make a great kindling, but can also last a couple of hours.
Eco-Nestro are more of a long-burn briquette. They need something like Hotmax to build a good hot base before placing one (or preferably just half of one) on top. This will produce a good flame and extend the life of the fire.
Waxlings are an excellent non-toxic lighter. They contain only wood wool soaked in candle and beeswax. Sometimes we find the Waxlings a little too tightly compacted, in which case give the Waxling a twist in order to loosen the fibres. This will make them easier to light.
An easy to use, uncomplicated mix of products that make it simple to get great performance from your stove. Easy to light and simple to keep burning, this mixture of briquettes will suit most stoves. Break the Eco Nestro in half for all but the biggest stoves, which will maximise your burn time and make this mix great value for money.
None of our briquettes contain additives or chemicals. They are made from pure, untreated wood by-product and are held together by compression alone.

All these briquettes come in a plastic outer. Please check with your local authority for recycling facilities.
The briquetting industry uses plastic to wrap wood briquettes in order to ensure they stay dry, as damp briquettes break up and are unsuitable for burning. The environmental impact of our products is important to us, so we are constantly working with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of their packaging by using cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.
