{DIY} How to Make Homemade Citronella Candles

by Jillian Leslie on

We don't have a lot of mosquitoes here in Northern California (thank God!), but I remember those buggy nights in New Jersey when I was growing up, and how we'd go out to a summer party, and I'd come home with my body covered in bites. So when I found this DIY on making homemade citronella candles on Garden Therapy, I had to share.  What a great idea!

The best part of this tutorial is that it explains how to add additional scents to your candles like eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint, and oregano -- other smells bugs don't like, that aren't just citronella.

Then, when you're all finished making your candles, you get to dress up your tin cans pretty like these!
