Testing TikTok: How to Turn an Orange into a Candle

Just when we thought we’d seen it all, trends like this remind us we haven’t.

On the latest episode of Testing TikTok, PureWow creator Kate Kesselman attempted to turn a regular orange into a candle. Now, stay with us. If you want to try this yourself at home, you’ll need an orange (of course), a knife and oil. Sounds easy right?

At the top of the video, Kate had to share how shocked she was to discover this hack on TikTok. “I am missing out on a piece of my life, something I didn’t even know I was missing out on,” she said. “How have I gone on for so many years without knowing this valuable skill?!” TBH, same.

When she started to cut into the orange, Kate shared a small secret with us: she hates oranges. “I hate the juice and I hate the fruit,” she said. “So, if this makes me have some sort of love toward oranges, that’s a win.”
