Orange Peel Wicks
The DIY Satsuma Candle is an Eco-Friendly Alternative to Traditional Tapers

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Jan 24, 12

It’s hard to believe that an orange peel is at all flammable, but the DIY Satsuma Candle shows that it can be. This unique project transforms this unlikely material into a practical and eco-friendly light source.

Conceived by a friend of HonestlyWTF blogger Erica, the DIY Satsuma Candle is a great table decor option for intimate dinner parties. It so happens that is how Erica was introduced to these amazing candles. A simple creation, all that is needed to make this fruity candle is a satsuma orange, olive or vegetable oil, a serrated knife, a spoon and matches. Surprisingly, no wax or wick is required.

According to Erica, the DIY Satsuma Candle will stay lit for at least a couple of hours depending on how long the orange’s pith is.
