To create your ecological lemon peel candle in a simply with our DIY Kits, please follow these steps:

 1  Cut the lemons in half, crosswise. Squeeze them as much as possible and remove the remaining pulp with the help of a spoon. The inside should be dry and without pulp.

 2  Heat the used olive oil or vegetable oil (previously filtered) in a microwave-safe measuring cup/container for 1 minute.
Note: The amount of oil needed will depend on the size of the lemons. For this project, we used 50ml (approx.) of used oil for each lemon peel. 

 3  Add the scented vegetable wax and mix well until the liquid wax is homogeneous.
For each lemon peel (50ml of used oil approx.) 10g of wax (1/2 sachet) is required.4
Suggestion: For an even more colorful version, add yellow pellets together with the scented wax.

 4  Pour the liquid wax onto the lemon peels.

 5  Wait 30 seconds and place the wick in the center, making sure it is straight.

 6  Allow the wax to cool to room temperature (about 20 minutes). Avoid moving during this phase, so that the surface of the candle is perfect. When the wax is solid, trim the wick excess

 7  Your ecological lemon peel candle is ready to use. Easy and quick to do!
