Citronella – Nature’s Weapon Against Mosquitoes!
Citronella works by blocking the scent receptors of mosquitoes, masking the carbon dioxide, body odour and body temperature that attracts them to people. Citronella oil is a naturally occurring repellent derived from citronella grass, part of the lemongrass family. It is golden brown in colour and has a strong citrus aroma. Citronella originated as a mosquito repellent in South East Asia where the leaves of the plant were rubbed near doors and windows to prevent insects from entering the home.

It is the scent of Waxworks citronella products that keeps mosquitoes away. Here are some tips on how to improve the effectiveness of your Waxworks products. Waxworks products can create a protective zone around your outdoor area.
- Place a number of candles around your entertaining area to form a natural mosquito repellent barrier.
- On windy days the Citronella scent is more likely to be blown away.
- To improve effectiveness, position your Waxworks products in areas where the wind is blocked and allow less distance between each product
- To prevent an excessively large flame and minimise smoke, allow your candle to burn for 2-3 hours, then extinguish and allow to cool. Trim the wick to 6mm then relight.
