MayaSticks are made from the same high resin fatwood pine, Pino de Ocote, that the MayaDust is. They provide you with a completely natural fire-lighter – no noxious fumes or harmful synthetic chemicals. MayaSticks are easy to light even when wet, and produce an extremely hot flame. You simply light one or two MayaSticks, and when the fire takes hold place them among your wood or barbecue charcoals. What a great natural alternative to chemical lighter fluids and bricks!! Each pack of Maya Sticks contains 8 to 10, 8 inch sticks.
