Summer is almost here! So learn How to make DIY Citronella Candles For Summer. Citronella candles are a summer staple when it comes to keeping the backyard bugs away. Below are the step by step Tutorial, anyone can make it. trust me.
What you need: Wax (I used soy wax for two candles and I also used the remainder of my block of wax from this project – both from AC Moore), candle wicks, containers for your candles, Krazy glue, and citronella oil. I ordered the citronella oil from here, and I also picked up some eucalyptus oil to mix in. If you don’t want the citronella scent to be too strong, I recommend mixing in a second oil.
Start by adhering the wick to the bottom of your candle containers with Krazy glue. Melt the wax in a pot over the stove at a low heat – I recommend having a dedicated pot for stuff like this. Remove the wax from the heat as soon as it has fully melted, and at this point mix in your essential oils. I used about ten drops of the citronella oil and five drops of eucalyptus. Pour the wax into your containers and place them in the refrigerator or freezer – they’ll harden in just a few hours!
This is a great way to re-use old mason jars!

The addition of eucalyptus makes these smell much better than store-bought citronella candles, and they’re far prettier too! I’m sure I’ll be making lots of these for the summer months ahead :).
