The great thing about making your own citronella soy candles out of pure soy wax is that they are safe to burn inside to kill and repel mosquitoes, flies and other insects. Just light up your citronella soy candle, rather than inhaling toxic fly sprays fumes with ingredients that even Google can’t explain.
The Citronella soy candle kit we have put together contains essential oils that are proven to kill and repel insects. Unlike traditional Citronella candles made of paraffin wax (a by-product of the petrol process). Just light up your Citronella soy candle rather than inhaling toxic fly sprays fumes.
Make sure to only use Citronella essential oil (not fragrance oils) for this candle otherwise it will smell like the real deal but it won’t work. You and your guests will become a mosquito buffet. Why? Because essential oils have properties that natural fragrance oils don’t.
