Now, don't get jealous, but mosquitoes really love me. I don't know what it is, but I can be surrounded by people and still be the only one to get bit. Maybe they can just see my veins easier through my transparent skin and I'm an easy target.
We've been spending more time on the patio now that it's warm, so I decided to make some homemade citronella candles to surround myself with. What's nice about making these yourself is you can put them into whatever container you like, and you can control the scent. I added some eucalyptus oil to mine so it's a little more pleasant-smelling.
1. Glue wick down to the bottom of container.
2. Melt wax (I use microwaveable soy wax) and add essential oils (I used 10 drops citronella oil and 3 drops eucalyptus oil).
3. Pour the wax into your container.
4. Cut wick once wax has hardened completely.
