This classic summer scent is great for keeping the bugs at bay for all your outdoor events. Make sure you grab your Citronella candle to have on hand for your family picnics, backyard barbecues, or that outdoor camping trip. You can even rub a little of the melted wax on your arms to take an extra measure to mask the scents from those pesky mosquitos. Our Citronella candle has essential oils infused that include citronella, eucalyptus, and geranium.

CAN I USE THIS MODERN FORESTRY CREATION AS A “LOTION CANDLE”?
Yes, you can! Because this Modern Forestry creation is made with 100% soy wax and lotion safe oils infused with essential oils, you can use the candle and the wax melts as natural and soothing lotion. As your candle creates a burn pool, you can dip your fingers into the melted soy. Soy wax never gets hot enough to burn skin - unlike paraffin wax. In our home, we use our candles as lotion, hair conditioner for split ends (just a little), and beard balm.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT MY CANDLE IS “HAND-POURED”?
“Hand-poured” means that we make candles the old-fashioned way - with time, great care, and with our own two hands. Other than our wax melter that melts over 50 lbs of pure soy wax at a time, everything in the Forestry Studio is done by hand - from the wicking of your cotton wick or wood wick, to the pouring of your essential-oil infused 100% soy wax candle, to hand labeling and packing your order with precision and care. We make sure the quality from start to finish receives all the love it needs before it meets your doorstep.
HOW LONG WILL MY CANDLE BURN?
We list minimum burn times for our soy candles. Burn time can be affected by several different factors like wind draft, length of wick, and size of container. Soy wax is known to get 6-7 hours of burn time for every 1oz of wax. Our 4oz candle burns a minimum of 20 hrs, 8oz is 40 hrs, and 16oz is 80 hrs.
