Geraniol & Citronella 100% Beeswax Votive Candle

$89

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.
With original artwork created by Kayla Lo, Hong Kong.

Why beeswax?
