The candle scent is a mix of Lavender and Citronella. Both scents are proven to ward off insects and bugs, specifically moths, mosquitos, and flies. This makes it great for camping, backyard dinners, or any other outdoor activities. The container is a durable metal tin. Chosen so that when your candle has burned completely, you can reuse your tin as a food container for camping, to hold your spices, snacks, fishing gear, or anything you can think of! All candles can also be refilled at our Ventura storefront.
