Material Required

  • Oil (Preferably Mustard or olive oil)
  • Cotton Wicks
  • Glass Jar
  • Thin plastic sheets

For decoration you can use food colour, shells, marbles, flowers, glitters, beads or even orbeez balls. (Just make sure whatever you use, doesn’t float on water, like leaves or flower petals.)


1. Fill your candle jar with water (leave some space for oil) and add your decoration material.

3. Place a small piece of plastic sheet on the water layer.

4. Slowly pour mustard oil in the same jar so that layers of water and oil are distinct.

5. Dip a cotton wick in mustard oil separately then slowly place it on the plastic sheet in the jar.

4. Light the wick and your candle is ready!
