Pinterest Debunked: We Put the Most Popular DIY to the Test
Anyone who has trolled the endless river that is Pinterest should be familiar with the clementine candle, of Apartment Therapy fame. It’s one of the most popular pins of all time and has caused many to wonder: Is it worth it? See below for instructions and our final assessment of whether this DIY is all it’s pinned up to be.
Although we had images in our mind of torn clementine peels and the wreckage of a mini oil spill, this DIY actually turned out to be as easy as prescribed. It filled the room with a citrus scent that was undeniably pleasant. However, we soon realized after lighting the wick that the scent merely came from peeling the fruit. The actual smell of burning olive oil in a clementine isn’t the most savory, so give essential oils a shot. Otherwise, unless you’re looking for a party trick at a clementine convention, we’d recommend just lighting a normal candle.
