There are a lot more pros than cons when it comes to summertime, in our books anyway, but one of the most pesky are mosquitos. Citronella candles are a great way to combat the little critters, because they shouldn’t have the power to drive us inside when the sun goes down. These succulent citronella candles just might be the most adorable way to keep the party going all night long.
Each of the plant candles are different, so it’ll look like a pretty garden on your backyard table. The six candles are made of paraffin and citronella oil with mini cement pots. Each one lasts for up to 6 hours, so those day barbecues that turn into evenings around the campfire will be more comfortable, sans mosquitos, for everyone.
The six-pack of succulent citronella candles from Darksteve are available on Amazon Prime for $45. They also make for fun home décor, and we wouldn’t blame you if you don’t want to light them. They’re almost too pretty to light, after all.
“Really cute and great quality, like real plants,” one buyer wrote. “Smells wonderful! I will use as room decoration,” wrote another.
If you like to spend a lot of time outside during the warmer months, you know the risk of mosquito bites is one way to drive you inside. These candles look fun, smell good, and will keep your gathering going way past sundown.
