Citronella Candle




While looking forward to spring, summer and fall all through the winter, there is one aspect of those seasons I thoroughly dislike-----mosquitoes.

I absolutely hate being bitten as the aftermath causes intense, extremely unpleasant itching.

The other day, wanting to sit outside on the lounge for awhile to get some sun, but hating the thought of mosquito bites, I decided to take charge.

A three-wick citronella candle came with me.

The scent it gave off was rather pleasant and guess what?

Not one single whining mosquito came near me!  Hurray!

HOW DO YOU DETER MOSQUITOES IN THE WARM MONTHS?

Just read that a spritz of Listerine does the trick. Haven't tried but I will!

I am with you on these - and I bought a three wick citronella candle too - the only thing is mine isn't as pretty as yours!

I don't like mosquitoes and I do love citronella candles. Last year I got really upset when Health Canada announced a ban on citronella... lol They reversed their idiotic decision since, thank goodness.

.. we use citronella to repel the mozzies. Kyton has a collar that sprays citronella if he barks... he hates it and won't bark if he has it on. I have a tissue soaked in citronella in a plastic container and I put it on my chair when I'm not using it, this keeps Kyton off my chair.. xxxx

Susan, what a lovely candle this is. I didn't know that citronella was good for keeping the mosquitos away, that's interesting. I'm glad they didn't come around, they can be such pesky little guys.

Have a sweet Friday and good weekend, Susan.

love, ~Sheri
