Make a Lamp from an Orange



Orange lamps are easy to make with common kitchen ingredients and lasts for 6 to 8 hours.  This is a good technique to have handy if the power goes out and even makes a great solution for camping.  The citrus from the lamp smells great as it burns.

What you need:

  • Orange
  • Knife
  • Olive oil

First cut the Orange in half, and take out the fruit.  You want to make sure the stem of the Orange stays intact, as this will be the wick of the lamp.  Once the fruit is separated, pour oil in the bottom of the orange and wick, and light!  This simple lamp will burn and smell great for up to 8 hours.
