Orange Candles!

Hi everyone
A very quick post tonight.  Just thought I would share this with you.
It's a candle made using an orange, clementine or satsuma to be precise, and a drop of olive oil.  I was completely taken with it when I made it.
If you would like to have a go yourself here's the link  It would be great if you could leave me a comment and let me know how you get on.
Just a word of warning!  As you can see from the pictures I placed mine on a glass dish just in case it leaked. And I also suggest you put it well away from other objects, just in case it bursts into flames, like one of mine did!!!! The others have been fine though.

Mine burnt for nearly 4 hours.  I think it depends on the size of the wick and the amount of oil.  Have fun!  Hope you like them. xx


  1. This looks a novel idea, not sure about the bursting into flames though x

  2. I have only had 1 burst into flames, but thought I should make you all aware that this could happen!!


I really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave so thank you for taking precious time to do this.
