Organge skin Candle

Organge skin Candle

Step 1

It is easy to make orange skin candles. The tops cut in a zig zag pattern, and then all the fruit center removed (yum), leaving a perfect shell for the beeswax. I melted wax in a double boiler we use just for candle making. We then put 2/0 cotton wick into a wick holder, and pinched it closed with pliers. I dipped the wick into the melting beeswax to coat, and dripped a bit of beeswax into the orange to secure the bottom wick tab in place. We then wrapped the wick around a chopstick balanced on top of the orange...to hold the wick straight.

Step 2

Once the wax was melted, we chatted with the boys about wax safety, and then with me holding their hand over the handle and guiding the pot, we poured the cooling beeswax slowly into the oranges. We left just under an inch of space of headroom at the top of the peel. We let the candles sit to harden/dry. When they are hard, we unrolled the wick, and trimmed it down to 1/4 – 1/2".

The candle is ready to burn - the orange ball is so sunny and inviting and the smell of beeswax is amazing.
