Make Your Outdoor Party Vibrant Looking forward to an outdoor celebration? Make these lovely floating mosquito repellant candles as decorations throughout the yard. Obtain unscented floating candles from local craft stores or online.
Fresh greenery such as rosemary or lavender works effectively against mosquitos, although you can also opt for faux greenery as an extra defense mechanism.
Use wide mouth mason jars of any size you prefer so your floating candles have room. For larger than 16 oz jars, simply double the recipe so as not to dilute the mixture too much.

Spring and summer are among our most anticipated seasons, yet with them comes mosquitos. I prefer being able to sit comfortably on my porch without constantly having to swat my hands, legs, arms or face in an attempt to repel them – hence these DIY mosquito repellent candles! Which ones will you try first?
