This is a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to make a candle. In just a couple of minutes, with just an orange, whole cloves and some oil, you will have a beautifully scented candle that will burn for several hours! I like to soak toasted whole cloves in the oil for a day or two before assembling the candle. I keep a jar with ½ cup canola oil and a tablespoon of cloves in the pantry for this express purpose, but the cloves may be omitted, especially if you need an emergency candle because of a power outage. This decorative candle is perfect for fall gatherings as well. Enjoy this lovely use of fire and air!
