We just received a shipment of one of our best products ever: all natural mosquito repellent candles! I know, I know - some of you are looking at snow. But here in Key West, mosquitoes are a part of life year-round. And when we find something new we get a little excited about it.
The candles are from our new candle line, Hillhouse Naturals (they also have a blog).
The candles are all natural with two different fragrance blends. One is wild mint, juniper, and tea tree, and the other is eucalyptus, mint leaf, and lemongrass. Note: No citronella! They smell fabulous in the shop without being lit, which is great, but we had to product test them for actual mosquito repellent abilities.
You know how we love outdoor dining. So Sunday night, we tested them at a dinner party in our loggia...
...and they worked great! The fragrance of the natural herbs was subtle and didn't overwhelm us as we dined.
And the container is reusable as a planter. All natural, no smelly citronella, reusable container, and THEY WORK! We're sold.
