Geraniol & Citronella

Votive Candle

HK$89

When it’s time to enjoy the outdoors, nothing ruins the occasion more than mosquitoes and other biting insects. Now you can use a scientifically tested and nature-based solution to fight them. Our Geraniol & Citronella candles combine two of nature’s strongest insect repellents in a special formulation that has been proven to help keep insects away.

Geraniol is a plant-based oil that is a proven insect repellent. Its light, floral scent combines well with the fresh lemon scent of citronella, which has long been used to deter insects.

Our Geraniol & Citronella candles contain 5.3% Geraniol and 20% citronella essential oils.These ingredients were found to be effective against mosquitoes by a study published in June 2009: “Efficacy of the botanical repellents geraniol, linalool and citronella against mosquitoes”, published in the Journal of Vector Ecology, Wiley, 2009.
