Summer evenings on our deck are great, but bugs are always the uninvited guests. Your choices to stop these bugs are, stinky citronella candles, dousing yourself with bug spray, or a really annoying bug zapper. But today, I’m here to tell you about a natural candle, that will do the job just as well.
Lafco New York reached out to us here at Kelly’s Thoughts on Things and asked if we wanted to try out their Geranium Mint Patio Candle. This candle is a natural bug repellent, using White Geranium and Mint essential oil. The candle is made with a clean burning soy and paraffin wax blend. It burns evenly, and the smell is distributed evenly throughout the area. All Lafco candles (and diffusers) come in a hand blown, artisanally crafted, glass holder. The Geranium Mint one has mint green coloring inside the glass. It is GORGEOUS!
I burn our candle inside and out. Outside it does great at keeping pesky bugs away. Inside, it just smells amazing. It has a fresh, floral, and mellow scent. This candle is simply elegant. I really can’t get over how beauteous the glass vessel is. Especially when the candle is burning. You have to see this candle in person to truly enjoy the scent and the beauty of it! So head to Lafco’s website to get yours!
Lafco New York makes a candle for EVERY room in your home. They also have room diffusers with many scents to choose from. That’s not all! Lafco makes hand cream, hand soap, body wash, bar soap, body lotion, and more. Better yet, ALL of their products are hand crafted by community artisans, and contain only all natural ingredients, and essential oil based fragrances. Don’t just take my word for it, head on over to their website and see all the amazing items they have to offer. I guarantee you won’t be able to choose just one! They are all over social media as well! Be sure to check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest. After you’ve seen all the amazing things they have, stop back and tell us what scent sounds the best to you. (I want the Beach House candle next!)
