Tonight the mosquitoes have determined that it’s time for a feast and, not one to surrender a combat, I made citronella CANdles this 12 months to maintain these buggers away.

DIY: This simple challenge will be merely performed in an hour when you’ve got some cans, some wax (previous candle nubs will do exactly high quality), and a few citronella oil. Probably the most tough half is discovering the precise wick on your wax. There’s a science to this, so it’s best to go to your native candle or craft retailer and ask for the precise mixture for correct melting. I like a big pool of wax and a great quantity of citronella aroma so within the bigger cans I added 2 or three wicks.

To date it’s working completely. Having fun with the backyard within the night with out swatting these pests away is a stunning factor.
