Making your own citronella candles is actually quite simple and you have complete control over what wax you use. Also? Don’t these eggshell candles make you swoon?
Spring has finally sprung and warmer temperatures bring blossoming trees, chirping birds and annoying mosquitoes. We appreciate being outside on our patio and even more so now that we have a gorgeous farm house table to enjoy our grilled dinners from. On warm mornings, we relish our comfort foods like hashbrowns with eggs and on hot nights we delight in grilled wild salmon with asparagus. Our patio isn’t just a place to eat, drink and be merry with friends and family though. It’s also the place where we do a bulk of our homeschooling when the weather is just right. And where my sons, unbeknownst to me, conduct science experiments that should probably require safety gear complete with gloves and goggles. The patio also happens to be the place for blood sucking pests to linger and lounge and make your grilled salmon dinners miserable.
One easy way to keep those pesky insects at bay is by dousing yourself with insect repellents containing N-diethyl-meta-toluamide or most commonly known as DEET. Of course convenience doesn’t always equal best. A much better alternative would be to make these beautifully rustic eggshell candles with added citronella essential oil to ward those blood suckers away.
