I found that the Olive oil produced a much larger and consistant flame! Stay tuned for more and Subscribe! Thanks :P
I've only just found out that petroleum jelly doesn't burn; try it [safely] and see. I had thought it did. PJ only slows down the burning of the cotton ball. Olive oil does burn. But this has now got me wondering how lard or other solid fats would go. A solid has the advantage of not leaking as a liquid oil could potentially do.

You made a Weak Vasoline Cotton Ball then, mine burn for at least 5 Mins.
