Laura’s Team Pick:
I learned this trick last year at the end of clementine season and didn’t get to try it myself. This week, my mum came home with a giant bag of clementines and so I grabbed a knife and some olive oil and got to making a candle.
I was slightly clumsy on my first attempt and spilled oil all over the table, so I found a video of a guy making one so that you can see how to do it. As an added hilarious bonus, he keeps whispering at weird moments and talking about how “gently” you have to do everything. It’s kind of like watching a slightly out-of-practice yoga teacher handle some kind of baby animal. Which is really what the holidays are all about. You should try it!
