I used this tutorial as inspiration for making citronella candles. However, I used paraffin wax blocks that resisted food coloring. Bummer.
I still love the effect of candle light. And the citronella oil gives off a very pleasant smell.
I was ecstatic to use my candle for the very first time and see that it was working! No bug bites!
However, my repurposed salsa jar was a little lack luster. Time for a quick fix.
Some adhesive spray, a sheet of pretty paper and a bit of ribbon later.....
Aaahhhh.... now to enjoy my plants in my bug free outdoor space
Mmmm.... I feel so relaxed piddling around my plants or just sitting outside looking at them.
And I'm loving my homemade citronella candles!
That's the latest update on my Outdoor Peaceful Space Transformation. More to come :)
