Orange Candle's


• 1 orange
• olive oil
• 1 sharp paring knife
• Lighter

*Essential Oils (Optional) and Cloves (Optional)

First you're going to want to carve your orange, slice into the skin but try not to pierce the flesh of the orange. Put your finger gently in the orange and peel back the skin. The most important thing is to keep the long stem in the middle intact; this will be your wick. You also need to cut a hole in the top half of the orange to vent. I let the Orange’s dry out for a few hours then poured some olive oil in the bottom half (let sit for ten minutes to soak in) then lit.  *I also used cloves to decorate them, you can leave them plain or add a little design, both ways look super cute. 
NOTE: The tough part is getting the "wick" to light. You really need a nice bit of Orange "flesh" sticking up in the middle, and has to have oil on it. If your Orange doesn't have any flesh in the middle OR if you rip it, you'll need to start with another one. Be prepared to hold the lighter there for a minute or two….But once it lights they are Beautiful and Smell Wonderful...not like oranges the oranges don’t actually smell like oranges after you gut them, but I add a few drops of essential oil to the olive oil!!!
