Don't let bugs keep you inside this summer! With this DIY Lavender Citronella Candles recipe, your backyard will be a bug-free oasis. Not a big fan of citronella? Not a problem, because this recipe calls for peppermint, lemongrass, and lavender oils that will mask the polarizing scent. On top of adding a pleasant smell, these oils have natural bug repelling properties of their own, so your candles will have an added strength. The pretty purple color and mason jar containers make these candles functional as well as adorable!
