This is something a friend taught me a long time ago, With just an orange and a little oil we can get our own oil lamp in a few minutes.
It is true that it does not serve to illuminate us, but it looks great as a decoration at night. If you have a romantic dinner or if you want show a curiosity at a meal or dinner with friends or family.
To make our lamp, we will only need the following materials. An orange and a little oil, I have taken some of them and it has already been used for cooking. This is how we recycle ;-)
The first thing we have to do is remove the skin from the orange separating it into 2 halves. For that, we mark with the knife and we are separating with the finger, in the video it looks much better.
The part that interests us the most is the tail, which we will use as a wick. We have to remove this part carefully so that it does not break and lose the oil later.
With this you are practically finished the lamp. We just have to pour oil inside making sure that our "wick" is very well soaked in oil.
But you will see everything much clearer with the video. If you don't follow us, subscribe I want to start posting a weekly video
Here I also leave some photos of the orange. Used as candle, lamp or lamp
