And since the mosquito season is just kicking off down here in good old Mérida, and these work so well, TYT just had to contact Claire from aliitleclairefication and ask for her authorization to share with you the amazing “DIY Bug Repellent Summer Mason Jar Luminaries”.
As is well known by the local expat community, we get a LOT of bugs in Yucatán and using citronella oil in a mason jar isn’t some “new thing”.
Since Claire from alittleclaireification.com is so in love with her essential oils instead of using chemicals for things like this, she could not resist to share these easy-to-make luminaries with TYT readers.
The best thing about these is the fact that they can help to ward off the bugs and they are beautiful as well!
*Never leave candles unattended or in reach of small children; Make sure the mixture in jars is not ingested.
So how pretty and easy are those? Perfect for an outside gathering or party, right?
Here’s to a beautiful summer ahead with many fun gatherings and wonderful memories (and less bugs).
