How to: make insect repellant beeswax candles
Sitting outside reading in the warm and light summer nights is one of my
favourite pastimes, but being allergic to mosquito bites I often
retreat to the safe indoors well before my curfew. This heavenly scented candle made from beeswax, will help you keep the warm summer nights bug free and romantic.
The Small measures: Beeswax insect repellant candles tutorial from Design Sponge shows you how to make your own.
With all the rain we've had in Norway this summer, I tend not to go outside at all, but let's keep optimistic: I can use the rainy days to make candles.
Beeswax is all natural, renewable and a lot kinder to both the environment, and the bugs, than bug zappers and insect spray. Also these candles are made using old jars, allowing you to upcycle and reuse, instead of chucking things away. (Aren't we being all Earth-friendly today?)
