Why toss an orange peel into the compost when you can transform it into a mood-lifting, beautiful-smelling aromatherapy candle?
If it sounds like magic, it kind of is. Watch and learn.
Separating the orange peel with the stem intact may take a delicate hand and some practice, but it’s the key to being able to light this baby on fire—when coated with oil it acts as the wick. Note: Sometimes it takes several seconds for the flame to catch, so be patient! With that in mind, a lighter will probably work better than a match.
So, when life hands you oranges, make a candle. It can burn for several hours, so this five-minute DIY is definitely worth the time.
