A friend of ours made a great candle for us to keep in the backyard and help to make sure the little flying pests stay away. I guess we managed to forget about it during the hot summer dog days that we have had lately. It melted all over our back deck and down the side of the railing. I would love to make another and I knew citronella was in in but what else could it be? I want to remake it and try to avoid telling the friend that we neglected her gift.
