Simple & easy to make, DIY lemon & herb citronella candles are the perfect way to ward off summer’s unwanted biting insects without the use of
How to Make
1. Mason or Glass Canning Jars
2. Floating Candles
3. Sprigs of Rosemary
4. Sliced Lemons or Limes
5. Lemongrass or Citronella Essential Oil
What you need:
First start by adding the lemon and lime slices. I used about 3 lemon slices and 2 lime slices for the large mason jars and about 1-2 lemon slices and 2 lime slices for the small mason jars.
Add 1-2 springs of rosemary to jar. Fill mason jar with water until an inch below the lid rings. Add about 20 drops of the essential oil. Take a butter knife or spoon and mix the ingredients in the jar carefully.
Place the floating candle on top to complete the DIY citronella candles.
Place the DIY citronella candles outside and light to repel biting insects.
Not only do these candles repel bugs naturally, but they are beautiful too!
These DIY citronella candles will last up to 3 days before the fruit and herbs will start to go bad.
