Outdoor candles provide your time spent outside a lovely glow. With so many styles and scents to choose from, the possibilities are endless - but we'll help you pick a scent that will not only make you happy, but will also keep mosquitoes away.
Citronella, lavender, peppermint, lemongrass, lemon, and lime are all insect repellent scents. The powerful, lemony scents overwhelm the bugs, which cause them to flee. Furthermore, these odors mask human scents, making mosquito bites more difficult to locate. Look for candles with these scents, and expand your current outdoor candle collection by including these new scents.
Candles are ideal for dim outdoor lighting because of their warm inviting glow. Bugs are attracted to bright lights, so keeping the lights off and candles lit will aid in the bug battle. Candles will provide a brilliant summer aroma and soothing ambient mood lighting, whether you choose a poured jar, tea lights in lanterns, or pillars. Make a candle scape on a side table or hang a few lanterns in the trees near your seated area.
Refillable Citronella Oil Holders are also available, ranging from torches to exquisite glass vases with rolling wicks. These repel bugs and are a cost-effective option for individuals who spend a lot of time outside. They can be used to help create the tone for a festive celebration or to add extra lighting to a sidewalk or path.
Remember that a lit candle is an open flame and a potential fire hazard if not carefully controlled, just like any other candle. Never leave a burning candle, especially torches, unattended. Never light a candle near or on something that could catch fire. Also, make sure candles are kept out of reach of youngsters and dogs.
