Candle-making: Citronella oil garden candles

The best natural insect-deterrent for late summer is citronella. We use the real essential oil, not the mass-produced chemical form which has no effect, which is widely sold as a 'citronella scented candle'.  Lucy will show you how to make these natural candles, using soy wax and essential oil, and cotton wicks, for you to take home.

You will make one large candle and 2 small candles, to take home and enjoy for summer evenings in the garden, bite-free! Your candles need to set, so you will need to return after 24 hours to collect them.

Workshops last just over an hour, at the shop. Refreshments are provided. Cost is £40. Call or email to book. shop@articlebath.com01225 460189
