Simple house hold science trick: Orange Candle


All you need is;

  • Orange
  • Knife
  • Kitchen Oil (Olive oil, vegetable oil, etc.)

Method:

  1. Carefully cut the orange in half, be careful to ensure you do not cut the middle stem. Remove/eat the flesh, but save half of the skin (or all of it) with the stem intact - as shown in the second picture.
  2. Fill it up about half way with the oil, as you’re pouring the oil in make sure you soak the stem on the way down.
  3. light the stem on fire and it will keep burning for a while to come!
  4. *Bonus* with the other half of the orange peel you can cover up the candle, giving it an eerie glow, or you could cut out any shape you wanted.
