Day 91: Clementine Candle

Looks Kinda Like Stars

Learned about a really cool trick you can do with clementines. Apparently they are not only delicious, but  they make a pretty amazing clementine candle! All you have to do is cut the skin around the circumference and peel both halves off, careful not to rip the skin. One end should have a “wick” and the other should be bare. Put a decent amount of oil (we used olive oil) in the wick side and let it soak for a minute or two. While that’s happening cut a cool little design in the bare end to let the heat of the candle escape. Once your wick is fully saturated, just fire a match, light ‘er up and you’ve got yourself an all natural clementine candle. Burns for approx. 30 mins, although ours lasted over an hour before we just blew it out.
