Citrus aromas make us feel refreshed and energized. But why burn toxic synthetic materials, or buy exorbitantly-priced soy and bees’ wax, when the perfect citrus-scented mood-lighting is sitting in your fridge?

Indie Lee, founder of the all-natural skincare line, Indie Lee & Co, shares one of her at-home secrets for an all-natural clementine candle – no wax necessary!

What You Need:

  • 1 Clementine
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil

How to Make It:

  1. Cut clementine in half
  2. Carefully peel skin off to keep whole
  3. Twist inside bottom pulp plug into a wick
  4. Fill with olive oil
  5. Light and enjoy

Extra tip: Cut a small design in the top half of the peel to make a creative candle lid.
