D.I.Y Orange Candle

Hi guys,
This is my little D.I.Y blog post where I turn a normal orange into a zesty candle. This is super easy and only takes around 10 minutes.
To do this you will need:
  • One orange
  • Knife
  • Olive oil
  • Lighter or match

Okay so you start off by getting your orange


with the knife cut all around the middle of the orange, but do not go further than the orange itself.


After it is fully sliced all the way around gently peel the skin off using your thumb. You will need to keep the stalk of the orange attached to the skin as this will act as the wick.




Next get your oil and pour in the skin with the stalk, make sure you dip the stalk into the oil. Let it soak for a few moments.


While waiting for the oil to soak take the other half of the orange and carefully cut a hole at the top this part of the skin will be the lid to your candle.


Once done light the orange stalk, and voila there you have it!



Now all you have to do is sit back and enjoy it's zesty aromas!
Hope you enjoyed this blog post,
Talk soon
