Making Orange Candles...

This week room made some ORANGE CANDLES.

We hollowed out the oranges leaving central pith to create a wick.  We used Canola Oil as the fuel to burn the candle.
We were interested if other substances other than wax could be used as a fuel to keep the candle burning.
We noticed that when the candle had been burning for a while the level of oil was reducing.

Remember if you try making an orange candle at home, remember to have an adult to supervise.
