Citronella - Keep the Bugs Away

It's the first official day of summer! Yay for s'mores, pool-parties, beaches, flip-flops and sandal-tans, sunscreen, ice cream, camping, cook-outs and bikinis! But there's one thing we forget to mention...yeah. Bugs.

Bug sprays can be nasty and often leave your skin feeling gross, sticky and even smelly! Not too mention the chemical plume you inhale every time you spray yourself... 

Lucky for you, there's citronella :) It's long been used and nothing new, but we wanted to remind you to bring a small travel tin with you and place it on your picnic table - it'll work wonders! 

It didn't make it on our graphic, but we've discovered a fantastic candle company that uses a soy-beeswax blend. They've created their own citronella line as well. Check it out here: 

*please practice save fire procedures and never leave a candle burning while unattended. And don't light a candle near a tent. Also, please don't start any unwanted fires*
