Keep Bugs Away With a Non-Toxic Mason Jar Repellent

We get a LOT of bugs in Florida and using citronella oil in a mason jar isn’t some “new thing”.  Since we love (love, love)  essential oils instead of using chemicals for things like this, I could not resist these easy luminaries.
I love that they can help to ward off the bugs and they are just so beautiful as well!
