So when I saw that you could actually turn clementines into CANDLES, I was pretty intrigued. I had my doubts about it working, but figured I'd trust in Pinterest and give it a shot.
So - I started by watching the slide show at Apartment Therapy, which is where the original pin is from. If you want to try this at home, watch their slide show. Seriously, there is no way I could explain how to do it...
Feeling invincible, I got to work tackling what they call, "Nature's Own Fuel" - I peeled my clementine veeeeeerrry carefully. I poured a little olive oil in the peel. I lit the "wick" on fire. Ok, I TRIED to light it on fire. I tried hard. I tried a lot. I tried over and over again.
It would not light. I got frustrated. I used up my pretty matches from Yankee Candle.
My husband yelled from upstairs, "ARE YOU BURNING THINGS?" I dropped half a match in the olive oil.
