Make a scented candle with just some oil and a mandarin

Mandarins, tangerines, clementines and satsumas.

We love them, they're great, but did you know you can do more with them than just eat them?

Mandarins are a great source of vitamins, and we use them to decorate lots of foods, but there's always one thing left over: the skin.

But now you can use them, and turn your evening into a perfect cozy time by making them into a candle.

You only need:

  • a mandarin
  • a knife
  • a lighter, or matches
  • olive oil

Cut the mandarin in two across the middle
