Delightful to you, but offensive to mosquitoes.

We power our candles with the highest-performing repellent essential oils that nature has to offer. Each candle burns for 30 hours and smells exceptional. No wonder The Today Show added this candle to their list on how to make the most of summer nights!

As the candle burns, our proven blend of mosquito-fighting essential oils is dispersed into the air. The fragrance of the oils binds to mosquitoes' olfactory receptors, creating confusion when they are looking for human indicators (like CO2 and body odor). Think of it as a minty, mosquito forcefield.

- Rosemary Oil (2.25%)
- Peppermint Oil (1%)
- Citronella Oil (0.75%)
- Lemongrass Oil (0.5%) Cedarwood Oil (0.5%)

- Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Beeswax (95%)

No synthetic repellent. No added fragrance. No dyes. No parabens. The only addition is a cotton-core wick.


We test our repellent candles at New Mexico State University's Molecular Vector Physiology Lab. But what does “tested" really mean? It means that we don’t hesitate to get in the weeds—or in this case, a cage—until we get the results you deserve.

During our studies, the NMSU team traces mosquito movement either to or from a human volunteer on the Murphy's Team. As olfactory-motivated creatures, mosquitoes move away from scents they don't like, such as our candles. The most recent study concluded that our mosquito repellent candle successfully decreased human attractiveness (aka, the likelihood you'll get bitten) for up to thirty hours.


How long is the burn time?

Each 9oz candle has a burn time of 30 hours. It is important that the top layer of wax completely melts during the first burn to minimize tunneling which will cause a less than satisfactory burn for future uses. For the best life of your candles, we recommend letting the candle burn for at least 3 hours each time. 

How do I maintain my wick?

For best results, and to prevent soot, be sure to trim the wick to ‘¼ inch before your initial lighting of the candle and each subsequent time after.

Can I burn this candle indoors?

While our candles are great at keeping away mosquitoes while you’re outdoors, the concentrated blend of oils make this product appropriate for outdoor use only.

How do I light and extinguish my candle?

To light, trim the wick to ¼ inch and use a lighter or match to light the wick. To extinguish you can blow the flame out or snuff the wick. Never use water and be sure the wax has cooled before you to trim the wick again or handle the candle.

How do I Recycle my candle tin?

Be sure to check your local recycling regulations. Start by removing the remaining wax and throw away the wick and place your tin in the recycling bin.

We don't think twice about putting in the extra effort to protect our planet—whether tirelessly researching more sustainable packaging or giving back 2% of our revenues. We make decisions that will protect the outdoors for the long haul because when it thrives, we thrive too.
