NEW Size & Packaging.
Illuminate the outdoors while eliminating bugs with this 6 oz. all-natural Citronella tin. Handcrafted with an exclusive blend of beeswax, soy wax, and pure essential oils of Lavender, Citronella and Cedarwood, this candle will burn for approximately 20 hours. A perfect camping companion thanks to its sealable tin and long burn.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE?
All other citronella candles, especially those made with paraffin, a petroleum product. Most soy candles are mixed with paraffin, not this one. In the US, in order for the label to read Soy Candle, it only has to be 51% Soy. Same goes for Beeswax, be sure the label reads 100% pure beeswax.
BORING (BUT USEFUL) STUFF
Recommended for outdoor use.
All natural, biodegradable ingredients: These candles are made from locally sourced (Seattle, WA) 100% beeswax, which undergoes no chemical processing. Wicks are 100% cotton, primed with beeswax, not paraffin and contain no lead or metal. These candles contain a small percentage of natural soy wax which is necessary for an optimal outdoor burn. 100% all natural essential oils of Lavender, Citronella and Cedarwood.
The tin is made with a minimum 75% recycled metal. Minimal packaging made with post-consumer recycled paper products and soy based inks.
Beeswax sourced locally in Washington for sustainably managed apiaries. All candles manufactured in Seattle, Washington, USA.
