A Citronella Story


*Carrie Bradshaw voice*

As we stood in the grocery aisle, we couldn’t help but think, how could a brand that is known for their outdoor bug protection have labeled, “Not intended for the repellent of mosquitoes” on a citronella candle? This led us on a journey to discover that there are many other (and better suited) natural fragrances that help to ward off mosquitoes.

Good news!

Your girls have been hard at work in creating a product that exceeds what is currently on the market, and intended to ACTUALLY repel mosquitoes. Instead of solely relying on the efficacy of citronella alone, we blended citronella with  orange, eucalyptus and litsea cubeba (all ingredients that are known for their repelling capabilities). By using a combination of different fragrances that mosquitoes dislike, we are confident that our Bug Off candle will leave you feeling more comfortable outside. 

Other ways to help prevent mosquito bites:

  • Remove standing water. Mosquitoes require still water to lay their eggs, even the shallowest of any standing water becomes a breeding ground when the temperature is right.

  • Materials like nylon or polyester are the best to wear outside to avoid bites. 
  • Avoid wearing floral fragrances of any kind as that is mosquitoes favourite  scent family. This includes hair and skin products too!

We know you’re itching to get outside and enjoy the weather as much as we are, and we hope our Bug Off candle helps make your summer memories a little more comfortable.


Love,

Em and Madi
