What you’ll needTea lightOrange or graprfruitCarving knifeToothpickClove seeds
1. Carve out a small indent at the top of the citrus fruit for the tea light. You may remove some of the fleshy pulp as well. Make the hole big enough so that the candle should fit securely. If you’ve made the whole too big, you can secure the candle by filing the whole with a little bit of candle wax and placing the tea light into the wax before it hardens.2. If the round fruit is not stable, you can slice the bottom of the fruit so that it’s flat.3. Using a toothpick, poke holes in the orange, following your preferred design. Do be creative.4. Stick the clove seeds into the holes that you have just made.5. Light the candle and enjoy the warm sweet and spicy scentsof the citrus candle.Arrange these candles on a tray with other citrus fruits such as lemons and grapefruits to create a medley of sumptuous scents. Once they’ve dried up a bit and loo k a little bruised, don’t throw them away just yet. Remove the tealight, rub a little salt onto the peel and place it in a mason jar filled with water and vinegar. Store it for a couple weeks and you’ll have an organic, all-purpose cleaner. Enjoy!
