Geraniol & Citronella Beeswax Jar Candle Refill

$290

When it’s time to enjoy the outdoors, nothing ruins the occasion more than mosquitoes and other biting insects. Now you can use a scientifically tested and nature-based solution to fight them. Our Geraniol & Citronella candles combine two of nature’s strongest insect repellents in a special formulation that has been proven to help keep insects away.

Geraniol is a plant-based oil that is a proven insect repellent. Its light, floral scent combines well with the fresh lemon scent of citronella, which has long been used to deter insects.

Our Geraniol & Citronella candles contain 5.3% Geraniol and 20% citronella essential oils.These ingredients were found to be effective against mosquitoes by a study published in June 2009: “Efficacy of the botanical repellents geraniol, linalool and citronella against mosquitoes”, published in the Journal of Vector Ecology, Wiley, 2009.

Geraniol & Citronella refill candle is made from 100% beeswax and finished with an FSC-certified sustainable and gently crackling wooden wick. Each one comes in a recycled box.

Burns for approximately 50 hours.

Made by hand.

Our Candles

100% Beeswax.

Why beeswax?
We love it because it’s an entirely natural wax made by bees. It’s the only eco-friendly wax there is. No rainforests are cut down, no animal habitats are destroyed, and no chemical processing is involved.
