How To Make Your Own Citronella Candle

We bugged out when we found this fun project from blogger Eden Passante of Sugar and Charm. Not only is the candle easy to make, but it’s a sweet-smelling (and pretty!) way to keep insects away. Wax, it’s on!

You’ll need:

• Candle wax (available at craft stores)
• Citronella oil
• Essential oils in various scents
• Wicks
• Recycled tea tin

Steps:

1. Add wax to a large pot set over medium heat. Stir occasionally to ensure a smooth, even melt.
2. While wax is melting, use a hot glue gun to attach a wick to the bottom of tin. Wrap a length of the wick around a stick and rest it on top of tin to prevent it from falling in.
3. Put melted wax in a heatproof bowl. Add citronella oil (1 ounce for every 6 cups melted wax) and, if you’d like to mask the citronella smell, an essential oil like lavender oil.
4. Pour wax into tins and allow to sit until it hardens (about 1 to 2 hours). Light an hour before dusk to enjoy an insect-free evening.
