Zesting the skin of a citrus fruit like oranges releases a spray of tiny oil droplets. Citrus oil has several volatile components, meaning that it evaporates quickly at room temperature. It is also a liquid with a relatively low flash point, meaning that only modest temperatures (~40-60 degrees Celsius) are needed to generate enough vapor to ignite a vapor/air mixture. With volatile and flammable liquid fuels, a spray of droplets is an ideal platform for combustion because the essentially spherical droplets have a high surface area from which they can evaporate and provide vaporous fuel.
