How can we not remind you that our recipe is a good tool to have when heading out to see fireworks with family, out on the lake, hiking, reading, outdoors, or sitting by the campfire?
Citronella has a fresh grassy, lemony scent with a calming effect and is commonly used to ward off insects making this a brilliant essential oil to use in our outdoor spray.
