Clementine Candle

Today I made myself a Clementine candle.  You need a clementine (obviously lol) and olive oil.

First you need to score round middle of  clementine  and then push your finger in and run it around the inside.

Then  you need to pull apart and you are left with two pieces like this.  Notice one of them has a natural wick, cool eh

you then need to cut a shape out of the top (at this point my husband decided he wanted to join in/interfere and he cut the shape)

You then trim the wick and put in some olive oil. Leave to soak for a while.  (maybe you could use this time to eat the clementine :)  )

After it has soaked for a while you can light it. You need to hold the match/lighter on it for a moment for it to light.  


Leave for a moment and then place the top on it

Sit back and enjoy your candle, mine has been burning for 40 minutes now!!
