Spending time outside in the summer is wonderful except for one thing……those darn mosquitoes. They love to bite me and it only takes being outside for a few minutes to get attacked. I have tried many different candles, torches, sprays, etc. This summer I thought I would try making my own candle to see how it worked. I have used it once so far and it worked great. It’s very easy to put together this DIY mosquito repellent candle, you only need a few items that you mostly already have laying around the house.
I started by reusing an old mason jar. I filled it with one sliced lemon, then added a few sprigs of fresh basil and poured in some tap water. I then added about 10 or so drops of lemongrass essential oil. I then plopped a small floating candle on top and lit that sucker. All afternoon I was free from those pesky bugs that I hate so much.
How do you keep the mosquitoes away? Leave me a comment below.
