Our mosquito repellent candle refills are the inseparable partner to our refillable mosquito repellent candle. Powered by our proven blend of repellent oils, each candle smells exceptional and repels mosquitoes for 30 hours. Each pack includes two refill candles.

01: Place one of these mosquito repelling refills in your refillable stoneware.

02: Light your candle, kick back, and enjoy citrusy, patio bliss.

03: Once your candle is cooled and done burning, remove wax from tin (guide here) and recycle the tin based on local regulations.

04: Repeat step one!

- 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. And 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. As olfactory-motivated creatures, mosquitoes move away from scents they don't like, such as our candles. The study concluded that our mosquito repellent candles 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 refill 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 these 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 these candles?

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 refills?

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.

    Mosquito repellent candle

    There is no scientific proof that citronella works as a repellent, however I do love the scent and Murphy’s does a great job with it.

    Love it- mosquitos hate it…😊

    They truly work, my little dog picked up some runny eyes, but we keep him in while burning them since they keep the Texas Mosquitos at bay!!!
