Well, here's another use for the skin of a fresh orange .... and this is just plain CLEVER! I 'stole' it from someone else, and sort of played with it 'til I got it right.
I made one today, and it has been burning for almost 10 hours already! Sheesh!
- 1 c
- cooking oil, any type
- ceramic plate or dish
- you can also use a grapefruit, or small clementines
- or "cuties" ... as long as it's something that will sit level!!
How to Make Orange Candle
- 5Use a long-stemmed lighter, like a Bic Torch or similar, and continue to hold flame on the "wick" until it lights. It won't light immediately. This takes a little while, so you won't be able to light it with a regular match the first time.
After the "wick" has finally caught and burned, you will be able to blow it out and re-start it very easily. But that first time, it takes patience.
Enjoy your candle!
