CANDLES for keeping mosquitoes away although research suggests you’d get better protection from topical creams and sound cultural practices such as tipping water out of outdoor containers that could otherwise allow mosquitos to breed! Still, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy these easy-to-make candles. Trim wicks according to pot height and tape one to the bottom of each pot. Melt wax in a double boiler, then stir in citronella oil (3 drops per 1 cup of wax). When pouring wax into the pots, use a pencil or chopstick to keep wicks centred.
