Add mosquito repellent candles to your outdoor shopping list.
Mosquitoes are the worst. Their bites itch terribly, and it's nearly impossible not to scratch them. Feeling itchy is the last thing you want to feel when you're supposed to be enjoying the outdoors. Since they're always going to be around, you have to be proactive and stock up on protective clothing and insect repellent.
Hats with nets, long-sleeve tees, and bug repellent are always at the top of the list for camping trips, but there's another product some of you might be overlooking. Mosquito repellent candles are a blessing, y'all. Here are six of the best mosquito repellent candles that mosquitoes will absolutely hate.
Essential Oils That Repel Mosquitoes
- Lavender oil
- Lemon eucalyptus oil
- Peppermint oil

- Citronella Oil
How to Make DIY Bug Repelling Candles

This outdoor candle bundle by Mosquito Guard is made from natural ingredients like peppermint, cedarwood, lemongrass oil, and citronella.

If you want a natural mosquito repellent solution, this is perfect.
A customer left a five-star review and said, "Luckily these smell very good and last a while, I thought they would be similar to normal tea lights and burn out really quickly, but They last multiple hours!"

I love this candle kit! Mason jars make cute decor, so these are perfect for barbecues with the family. You get three candles for $36. Here's your chance to keep your backyard mosquito-free all summer long (while keeping a nice ambiance).
