We all know how bad mosquitos can be during the summer and fighting them off, so you can enjoy a dinner outside, is always a nuisance! Since the weather is warming up, we wanted to create a few of our own citronella candles using recycled wax (candles we already had!) and charming tins we’ve collected. The nice thing about these DIY citronella candles, aside from the chic look, is that you can control how much citronella oil you put into the candle and also add in other scents to offset the smell. We added in a grapefruit scent and the combination was great. So, start saving your tins to make these this summer! And just a quick tip, don’t use any good kitchen items (i.e. shot glasses or measuring cups) you’ll want to keep when working with citronella. It’s so strong and the smell will last forever! We recommend separating craft and cooking items. Enjoy and stay charming!
