Ingredients/stuff you’ll need:
1 orange (preferably with a thick skin)
Grapefruit spoon (optional/you can use your hands just fine)
Olive oil or vegetable oil
Pick/Buy/Steal/Borrow An Orange.
Use a knife to cut the orange in half across the middle.
Use your fingers or a grapefruit spoon to remove the flesh down to the skin, being sure to leave the middle stem like portion intact. (I was worried about it ripping out, but the worry wasn’t necessary. The “stem” is tough and won’t pull out easily.)
Pour oil over the stem (this is important, you need to get the stem/wick saturated with the oil to help start the flame). Fill to slightly below the top of the wick.
Let the oil filled candle sit for a few minutes before lighting with the lighter. Even then, it still takes a couple of minutes to keep the flame from extinguishing. But, once you get it lit, it will stay lit for….wait for it.
FIVE HOURS!!!!! And, as far as the scent goes…think a homemade orange and olive oil body scrub. Just a slight citrus scent mixed with olive oil and something else you can’t quite put your finger on.
I will never throw away an orange rind again without illuminating it.
