These DIY natural insect repellent candles will help you enjoy the great outdoors without being eaten alive by mosquitos. The beeswax lasts longer than other types of candle wax, and has the added bonus of being a renewable resource.

Design*Sponge offers step-by-step directions for making these candles. You’ll need around 100 grams beeswax and three types of bug-banishing essential oils (citronella, eucalyptus and cedar), along with a few other candle-making tools easily found at craft stores. Be banished, bugs!
