The bug candle we used on our roof garden last summer stinks. Light it up and it throws off a totally overpowering citronella smell. We’re ready for something different and just might try this candle ($56) from Hillhouse Naturals. They promise it will keep the mosquitoes away naturally, with either Eucalyptus, Mint Leaf and Lemongrass; or Wild Mint, Juniper and Tea Tree scents. And when the candle is finished, the concrete planter would be great for a succulent garden.
