Bug Repellent Candles with Scents

Get rid of pesky bugs the safe way with these charming DIY insect repellent candles. These scented jars with floating candles are made using essential oils, dried herbs, and fruit zest.

Consider these tips when making this project:

  • Add citrus zest or rinds. Bugs hate the scent of oranges and lemons. Cut into small strips so they don’t overturn the floating candle.
  • Pour 20 to 30 drops of essential oil. Citronella is always a good choice.
  • If you’d like to prettify the candle, add a few drops of food coloring and some superfine glitter.
  • Use vanilla or rosemary scented floating candles.

Now you can enjoy summer nights without annoying little creatures feasting on your skin!
