Candles made from oranges

A candle is a solid block of fuel (commonly wax) and an embedded wick, which is lit to provide light, and sometimes heat. Today, most candles are made from paraffin. Candles can also be made from beeswax, soy and other plant waxes, and tallow (a by-product of beef-fat rendering).

Candles made from oranges – For this candle you need orange, oil or tallow, thread and matches.

    What a unique idea! It looks really cool too!

    Yeah… I would be curious as to the burn time as well. I'm guessing it would depend on what type of oil is used.

    This is a huge fire hazard.

    any candle is a fire hazard..duh. I'm thinking this is a stop gap candle not one to use everyday

    kind of neat, but not at all a candle. more of a one time use oil lamp. I love oil lamps, use Olive oil though, to avoid bad smells put off by most oils as they burn.

    I was wondering at the type of oil used. That would make a big difference. And does it have to be an orange? Can it be some other type of citrus fruit, like a lemon or grapefruit?

    I know it's supposed to be an emergency candle, but I would imagine you can use wax.

    dumbest idea ever! If that orange tips or gets knocked and spilled at all you have a grease fire

    I agree completely. Why not use a pop can cut in half?
