Contains 5.3% Geraniol & 20% Citronella Essential Oil
Effective against mosquitoes
The dual combination of the light, floral scent of Geraniol – a
plant-based oil and proven insect repellant – and the well-loved lemon
scent of Citronella creates a natural and fresh fragrance that helps
keep insects away.
The Candle Company’s Geraniol candles contain 5.3% geraniol. This is more than 5% of geraniol that was found to be effective against mosquitoes by a *research study in June 2009. Our candles also contain 20% of citronella essential oil.
