The mosquitoes and other bugs are abundant this year, and you want a safe way of keeping them at bay, right? Here is my take on the classic citronella candle. With top notes of lemongrass and lemon, middle accords of citronella and a base of camphor and vanilla, this candle will be a natural and effective way to keep pesky mosquitoes and gnats away from decks, campsites, and other outdoor areas so they aren't buggin' you this summer! This fragrance oil is infused with natural essential oils, including citronella, lemon and orange.
Dirt Road Candle Co. candles are hand poured in small batches in Atlantic, Iowa. We use pure, renewable, American grown soy wax infused with paraben & phthalate free premium fragrances with 100% cotton wick. Variations in the look and texture of the wax will vary from candle to candle. These differences are not considered defects nor will they affect how your candle burns.
Allow your candle to reach a full melt pool during every burn. This is where the wax is completely melted around the whole diameter of the jar. This will ensure a clean, even burn for the life of your candle. Always keep the wick trimmed to 1/4".
Please note that the mason jars are reusable after your candle is finished. Simply pop the wick out of the bottom of your mason jar and dispose of it. Then, put the mason jar into the microwave until the remaining wax is melted. Use a paper towel to wipe the remaining melted wax out of the jar. Put into dishwasher to clean and sanitize. Reuse for years to come!
So adorable! Handwritten thank you note - AND beautiful, effective candle. Will order again as soon as this one runs out!
