This insect repelling candle smells amazing! Unfortunately, my daughter is extremely sensitive to mosquito bites and I have researched natural fragrances that repel mosquitos and other harmful insects such as ticks, house flies, fleas and others. As a young girl, my husband and I would refer to our daughter Juliana as "Juju Bug" making this the perfect name for this candle. Bug repelling candles do not need to be unpleasant to you. We use these candles in our own home for protection and we are confident they will give you comfort in your outdoor or indoor living spaces.
