Molly and I love making Orange Candles! We’re not always 100% successful at it (see video for proof), but we always have fun. And hey, sometimes it actually works! Enjoy.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
- Oranges (of course)
- Knife (a butter knife for kids)
- Olive oil (or coconut oil)
Cut the orange in half horizontally.
Use your knife to dig out the edible part of the orange, leaving just the rind with the stem in the middle.
Eat the orange because it’s amazing and let the rind dry.
Pour olive oil or coconut oil into the rind and let it sit for 45 minutes to an hour.
Light the stem like a wick with your lighter.
Invite me over for an orange candlelight dinner. Or if it’s a fail, we can just eat oranges.
