Insect Repellent Candles

It was such a beautiful day out yesterday and today is shaping up to be pretty glorious too, a sign that Summer is really here.

If you haven’t already, it’s probably time to dust off the BBQ and to start getting ready for all those fun outdoor activities like camping, Summer parties, games with the kids and lounging in the sun with a nice big cocktail.

This will also mean stocking up on citronella candles to keep those pesky bugs away. I find bug sprays to be way too smelly and toxic, and most of them don’t even work anyway.

Plus candle light is way more romantic than the buzzing and cracking of a bug zapper.

But did you know that you don’t need to buy just “citronella” candles to keep the bugs away, other essential oils which are often used in candles work just as well.

Basil, Thyme, Clove, Cinnamon, Lemongrass, Peppermint and Rosemary Candles are particularly good for keeping mosquitoes away.

Cedar oil is great for keeping mosquitoes and moths away. Eucalyptus candles are good for flies and dust mites.

Lavender candles will repel insects but they do attract bumble bees, but Eucalyptus and Tea Tree oil candles will keep them away.

As a candle junkie I’d suggest just buying one of every kind then you’ll have no problems!

Here are some of our favourite candles for Summer; perfect to keep those pesky bugs away…
