Keep those pesky mosquitoes at bay with our Citronella fragrance oil. A top note of lemon peel adds a boost of citrus to the lemongrass heart. This camphoraceous scent performs well in soy wax, resulting in strong citronella candles that don’t just smell great, but help deter mosquitoes, too. Citronella candles are great for picnics, campsites, and backyard barbecues. This green and herbal scent is both refreshing and functional. This fragrance is infused with natural essential oils, including citronella, eucalyptus, and geranium.
Top: Lemon Peel
Middle: Lemongrass, Camphor

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This was very slow to come to a light trace and was very easy to work with. After 24 hours, there was no sign of discoloration or of the soap going through a gel phase. The scent was very strong. After 30 days, there is no discoloration and the scent remains very strong. This would be an ideal fragrance to do more complex swirls or design techniques that require a slow trace.
Love this scent! This is exactly what I was looking for.
Made a large batch of citronella candles (w a small amount of eucalyptus & peppermint scent I got as a free sample!) for mosquito repellent to sell this summer, and it smells amazing! Will be lighting one tomorrow to see how well it works:)
This is totally spot on! Can't wait to make a few candles with this scent this summer. Its perfect for repelling mosquitos!
Definitely smells like citronella! Amazing cold throw! I haven't burned it yet waiting for the summer when the mosquitoes come out lol!
Just made a batch of citronella candles for outside summer use. I used harmony blend paraffin wax and liquid dye. They look great! The smell is exactly right for repelling bugs and mosquitos.
Smells like mosquito repellent because that's what it is! Excited about a healthier option for repelling those pesky bugs.
Smells like mosquito repellent 🤢
