3) Any type of oil, Vegetable, Olive, Canola, etc.
The other half can also be used as a cover by similarly hollowing the center and cutting a circle in the top. Thinning the white skin under the thicker orange portion will give the candle a softer orange glow.
1. Don’t place the candle near anything flammable.
2. Make sure to house the candle maybe in a glass container or some type of ceramic.
3. Do not use a dried out citrus fruit, it doesn’t burn all that good and it doesn’t look as good.
4. Make sure you twist all the fruit fibers in the middle to form the wick so that their aren’t any strands left.
5. Make sure the candle isn’t tilted cause the oil can spill out and the fruit can catch fire.
6. Use plenty of oil so that it’s just slightly bellow the top of the fruit but not above the wick.
7. You may have to use a lighter to light the wick instead of a conventional match and you may have to light it a little longer than a regular candle.
8. Place the Candle in an area where you can see it and check on it time from time (so that you don’t forget that you have a candle lit.)
