A few drops on the top of the esbit would help it light up quickly, even in windy situations (of course, a windscreen helps in both the lighting and the cooking process, as you don't want the wind blowing the flame and heat away from your cook pot). Just a thimbleful would also help to start a small campfire if the need arose (as on a couple truly cold nights curing a cold snap in Oregon in 2002).
