All-Natural Mosquito Repelling Candle

You're Going to LOVE This All-Natural DIY Citronella Candle Alternative

Since the rise of Zika, we've never been more aware of how important it is to fend off mosquitoes. Citronella candles have long been the assumed candle of choice for keeping these pests away, but it can be hard to find an attractive citronella candle, or at least one that isn't laden with chemicals. Blogger Claire of A Little Clareification solved the problem by creating an adorable bug-repelling candle using a mason jar, essential oils, fresh herbs, and sliced citrus. It's undeniably beautiful while also providing an all-natural solution for a major problem. Get the full tutorial here on Claire's blog.
