Citronella Candles

Prepare these candles and protect yourself from mosquitoes!
We still have warm evenings here. It encourages to sitting outside, making barbecue and meeting friends open air. Summer haven’t moved on yet, as same as bugs. They are still active especially after dusk. You can buy mosquito repellent to protect yourself, but the composition of such remedies are frighteningly toxic! I can't convince myself to use them.

Stephanie - the creator of Garden Therapy website shows the way of making anti-mosquitoes candles. She adds a fragrance of lemon, so all unfriendly bugs stay away from you all evening. In case you forget about preparing these magic candles, be equipped with Soothing Bug Bite Balm at least.
