You don't have to but i have to do this from scratch. I can't find coconut meat. So i bought an old coconut (maprao tuentuk, as Thais call) not too old or it will be chewy. Pick light color one.

This was sent to me after i made the batch. It's the aroma candle Thais use to infuse flowery smells on to the coconut filling. You don't need to, but it's nicer with the aroma.

Put ur fillings in a ceramic container with lid. Place a smaller bowl on top of ur fillings. Light up both ends of the candle. Close the container lid. The fire will go off from lack of O2.

Keep the smoke in there for 30 mins or overnight, then process on. These candles are quite hard to buy tho. Therefore, i just skip this step this time.
