You have oil which can be used to make a lantern, candle etc or you can even put it on your metal knives, axes and tools to prevent them from rusting. Our ancestors used this method hundreds of years ago, and it is still used by tribes today. The Inuit refine oil from whale meat and use it for lanterns, and for survival food. It needs to be an oily fish, such as Trout, Salmon, Mackerel or Smelt. You can make this oil with not tools, all you need is a heat source and metal container to boil it.
