Salty Candle

I would like to share to you a new craft idea, a candle made out of salt and oil. Yup!!! You read it right - SALT; different from the usual candle that is made of wax. Since it is not made of wax then you can use it many times. You just need to refill it with oil.

You can make this with your kids. My niece help me with this craft.


What you need:

A glass container

Salt (enough to fill the container)

Cooking oil (use cooking oil is an alternative)

Colored chalk

For the wicker:

match stick and cotton (form it like a cotton bud)


1. Rub the chalk to the salt until the salt assumes the color of the chalk. I use color blue, green, yellow, orange, and red here.

2. Put the colored salt into the container alternately or you can do whatever art you want to create.

3. Put the wicker and pour the cooking oil. Be sure that the cotton of the wicker is soak with oil.

4. Now, you can use the candle. (NOTE: It will take you few seconds before the wicker burns). Refilll with cooking oil if it's necessary.


“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.
