This Bugs Away candle has been blended to be as effective as possible and also created to be family and budget friendly, so no-one needs to compromise their families health by using toxic, harmful to health candles using artificial perfume, colours and/or paraffin wax.

Approx 5.6cm in height, 8.9cm diameter.

You may wonder why we’ve decided to make our own? We have noticed when shopping for Citronella candles for ourselves, that the majority were just citronella in paraffin wax a known harmful wax to burn, or when we did find a citronella candle made with a non-toxic wax such as soy wax, it was in such small quantities of essential oil that the candles would hardly be effective.

We saw a need for something much more effective! After research and much testing we established a blend of essentials oils much more effective than just citronella alone and smelling a lot nicer too-this has led to this NEW ‘Bugs Away’ blend being created unique to us at LOCK & LATCH.

We wanted this range to be in a one grab tin, which has a strike paper on the underneath and a safety match included under the lid, so you can keep one or a number of these in a safe place where all the family knows where they are kept incase of an impromptu picnic, garden party, BBQ or even in an emergency such as a power shortage. They can even be popped into your holiday luggage or an emergency go-bag, being in a tin rather than glass means these are a lighter, safer, waterproof option for travel.

When empty these tins are perfect for use around the home, such as storing matches, dried herbs and spices, all you need is to clean them thoroughly and add a label of what’s inside.

  • Always trim your wick to about 6-8mm before you re-light your candle. This will ensure a long lasting candle, minimise soot and remove any mushrooming of the wick left from the previous burn. But be sure not to over trim your wick as you may not be able to re-light your candle.
  • If you do not trim the wick regularly, if the candle is in a draft or is left to burn too long you may get a “mushroom” on the end of the wick which may cause some soot to collect on the inside of the glass. If this happens, extinguish your candle, wait for it to cool, wipe off soot with a clean damp cloth and re-light.


  • Please remember the candles are hand poured in small batches, not massed produced in a factory by machines. Although all effort is made to ensure consistency, every candle will be unique and different.
  • The top of your candle may also appear slightly uneven & there may be some wax irregularities (such as bubbling or unevenness) after burning. this is also a sign of natural soy wax being hand poured.
  • Do not leave your candle in direct sunlight as it may turn a yellowy colour, this will not affect the candle.
