This mosquito repellent will definitely smell great with the lemon and lime on it. This is way better than using commercially made insecticides.

These candles would smell so nice on the patio! I am wondering how often you would need to replace the ingredients in terms of freshness as well as effectiveness. I think adding some mint might be a nice option as well, since it grows so easily. Does the heat of the candle flame help bring out the scents of the ingredients with keeping Mosquitos and bugs at bay, or is the candle for ambiance also? This is a great way to keep natural esecially for those with lung and breathing issues. Great project!

I am trying to go natural and use essential oils for everything so I am so glad I found this mosquito repellent because they are all around this year. I have fresh basil in my garden and it smells wonderful and I love the smell of lemons and limes. All I need is some lemongrass oil. These candles are so easy to make and look pretty and smell amazing.Great for an outdoor cookout or party.

This is such a beautiful idea. My friend is planning an outdoor summer wedding, and these would make amazing table decorations, and they will help to keep the guests comfortable.

I hate having to use bug repellent, so I think these candles are a great idea. These candles are almost too pretty to use!

How neat! This would be super handy for the summer. I also like that it's all natural. The store-bought mosquito repellant candles always smell very much like dangerous chemicals to me!
