A ribbon (optional)

A little card to put your greetings and instruction

A few fresh orange peel (washed and dry) or dry orange slides

Cinnamon Stick

Dark roasted coffee beans

It is nothing difficult, just like any other floating citronella candles, the only different is we can even skip the essential oil or citronella oil in this recipe, and it's more safe to use and easier for clean up as there's no oil in the water.
