Most people associate Citronella with the mosquito-repelling candle. They also usually complain that those candles don’t work. Fact is, most candles that are purchased at the big retailers have ZERO pure essential oil in them. The wax that is being burned into the air is also toxic. The truth is that the best way to fight insects is to take your diffuser out onto your patio and diffuse your pure organic Citronella essential oil out on the patio. No toxic wax or artificial fragrances burning, just pure citronella oil diffused into the air giving you your own air defense system!
Citronella can also be added to mists and bug repellent sprays, amplifying your arsenal.
Adding a little Cedarwood to the Citronella while on the patio provides a nice aromatic scent. Cedarwood oil is also a known bug repellent. There are many other effective oils that can be added to the Citronella as well. Check out our Bug Repellent Collection for more ideas!
