Making candles with used cooking oil is a useful way to get rid of old oil. Unlike traditional, wax-based candles, the wick of an oil candle does not burn up during use. Instead, the wick absorbs the cooking oil, and only the oil is burned by the flame. Instructions Things you'll need: Malleable wireCotton stringMatchstick or nailGlass containerCooking oilMatch or lighter 1. Assemble the wick support. Use a fine, malleable wire, such as copper wire, and wrap it around a matchstick or nail four to six times. Wrap the wire loosely so the match or nail can slide out after wrapping is complete. 2. Slide out the match or nail from the wire coil. Insert an all-cotton string into the wire coil to act as a wick. Butchers' twine works well for this. Cut the string to a length that protrudes 1/4 inch past the end of the coil. 3. Set the wire coil and wick into the middle of a glass container. 4. Pour the cooking oil into the glass container to a height lower than the height of the wick. If the cooking oil is used, strain it first to remove any food debris. 5. Allow the candle to rest and the wick to soak up the oil before lighting. Once the wick is saturated with the oil, it is ready to be lit. Light the candle with a match or lighter.

Cooking Oil - Made Candle (Focusing on Thermal Physics and Energy) An Investigatory Project in Physics By: Introduction Today, candles are made not only for lighting purposes …but for many other uses such as home décor, novelty collections, as fixtures for big occasions (weddings, baptismal , etc.), and as scented varieties for aromatherapy. Candles are made from different types of waxes and oils. Cooking oil is a major kitchen item in Filipino households. It is also used substantially in fast-food outlets, where it is used in different stages of food preparations. Ordinarily, used cooking oil is discarded. This waste oil pollutes and clogs canals and sewerage systems. The sound of cooking oil as the prime material for making candles may sound cliché. Yet, in this investigatory project, we will prove that cooking oils can be made to candles.
What is the bakcground of the study of the feasibility of used cooking oil as an additive component in making candles?
History of candles tells us that early Americans made candles in the Autumn season. They would learn how to make candles out of necessity not just for fun. People spent hours …boiling down the fat of newly slaughtered beef and sheep into tallow. The job was hot and sweaty, and the odor of the rendering fat was also unpleasant and the product was far from perfect. The candles burned too fast, buckled in warm weather, and gave off fumes and smoke. Other sources of wax were favorable such as bayberry and beeswax. Both were expensive and candles made from them were reserved for special occasions. It was not until the discovery of paraffin in the 1850's that the average family could enjoy the luxury of bright, steady, smokeless illumination. Today, candles are not only for light purposes but it can be used as a home decoration, novelty collections, main decoration for big occasions such as wedding, birthday, baptismal, etc. and scented aromatherapy. Candles are made of different types of waxes and oils. Cooking oil is a major ingredient in Filipino households. It is also often used in different food preparations. When cooking oils are discarded by the people/person who use it, they just throw it in canals and sewerage systems which can be the cause that the canals and sewers are clogged.
