Here is a pretty nifty way to turn your lunch or snack into a candles, as long as it is a citrus fruit it will work.



  • Citrus Fruit (Grapefruit, Lemon, Oranges, Limes)
  • Any Type Of Oil  (Olive, Vegetable, Canola etc.)
  • Knife or pumpkin carver


  1. Remove using the knife or eat the middle of the fruit, making sure you leave the middle stem intact.
  2. When cutting out the meat of the fruit, it is easiest to go from the edges in.
  3. If time allows let fruit dry out for 1-2 hours.
  4. Then fill fruit with your oil to just below the center stem.
  5. You are then ready to light your citrus wick and you will have a fully functioning candle.





So give it a try even go with a lime its an inexpensive way to have sent and light in your home.

Til next time friends,
