I've made the switch from paraffin candles to soy wax candles and haven't looked back.Soy candles are more natural and they don't increase the CO2 level in the atmosphere . They also have a low melting point, are longer lasting and non toxic. I've already purchased a soy wax candle by this brand and have been really pleased with it. I found that the candles burn nice and slowly and give off a strong, yet not overpowering scent that is also long lasting. I'm a huge fan of everything citrus and the lemon aroma of this citronella candle is very potent. It can be used indoors as well as outdoors. I feel this would be the perfect gift for a garden party/bbq to keep pesky midges at bay. You get 330g of candle which should last 75h. I've had mine lit nearly all day and it hardly made a dent in the wax. Soy candles tend to last longer than regular paraffin candles which makes them great value for money.
What and absolute beautiful product. I’ve purchased this as we have flood lands behind our house and subsequently are always inundated with flies and insects in the summer. So I’m hoping this will do the job this time round. Although it’s so beautiful I don’t want to light it.
The tin is to die for and looks so modern and posh. This is such a quality product. The scent when you smell it is clearly citronella and I’m sure it’ll be a deterrent to the flies come summer.
The candles appear very fresh with a strong scent. I have not yet tried it for the mosquitoes yet since none have come yet. I have used it regularly as a candle just before bedtime and I find the smell quiet nice and relaxing before bedtime. The packaging is also beautiful. Just love it
I was looking for a solution (repellent) that wouldn’t kill mosquitoes, flies, bugs etc as I didn’t feel happy with my zapper light! Instead this candle deters them. I found that as soon as ‘my little friends’ arrived they’d leave! The soy wax lasts long and is natural. It consists of three wicks which means there’s more light! Sits in such a beautiful metal box/tin which I love as the box is decorated with a Van Gogh design. I’m going to purchase a few more as gifts for friends.
Lovely tin! Attractive colours, and quite strong citrusy smelling! Decided it was too nice to burn so its on display in my lounge now! I imagine I will use it when the summer well and truly hits to keep the mozzies away, but until then I’m happy displaying it! The strong smell and generous size of it gives me every confidence this will serve its purpose. They haven’t been cheap as far as presentation goes so this gives me confidence.
I am always a little dubious about fly/mozzie repellent products as many I have had previously definitely do not work. But this candle did as I did not sustain any bites on the two evenings I used it. Lovely scent and the lid it comes with looks smart on the side.
I love citronella essential oil in general and the candle did not dispoint. Didn't see a mosquito since I am using it, but not sure if it's not the bad weather. Love the presentation and I think it will make a nice gift. I saw that some reviewers were mentioning that the wick wasn't burning properly... Mine is fine.
Bit more than I expected to pay, but decided to treat myself, especially as it is Soy Wax, supposedly burns for lots of hours, so should last me a couple of years!! It did work, and that was another plus, one doesn't mind spending the money, if the goods work. It covered a reasonable area too.
