It's a safe, non-toxic way to repel mosquitoes and other pests away from your outdoor gatherings.
This idea comes from our friend Anusha Rajeswaran of Fish and Bull. This candle has one star ingredient: citronella essential oil. It's a summer staple for keeping pesky mosquitoes away. We use microwaveable soy wax since it's an easier and faster way to melt wax without a double boiler. Follow package instructions when melting to avoid overheating, which poses a fire hazard.
