Housed in a stunning carved cement vessel, this citronella candle works to mask odors that attract insects, turning your outdoor oasis into a pest-free escape. Citrus Bergamot: lemon, bergamot, green tea leaves, subtle citronella, and sweet honeysuckle blossoms (FRESH)White Verbena & Pear: Italian bergamot, petitgrain leaves, white verbena, and rainforest moss (FRESH) With a 20-year legacy, Minnesota-based fragrance label Illume is best known for its luxuriously-scented, clean-burning candles. Each signature scent is crafted by hand from all-natural, food-grade ingredients like coconut wax and essential oils, creating an inviting atmosphere wherever one is lit. For the best burn experience, keep the following in mind: The first time you light your candle, allow it to burn until the wax pool melts all the way to the edge; for a larger candle, this may take several hours. Wax has " memory," so if it is extinguished with a partial pool, that will prevent a full, even pool from forming in the future. Trim your wick each time you light the candle, removing any " bloom" from the previous burn. We recommend lighting a wick that is 1/4-1/2" in length. Ensure that your candle is placed on a heat-safe surface. Do not allow wick trimmings, dust, or other materials to accumulate in the wax pool. To ensure safety and longevity, be sure to check the bottom of your candle for additional instructions, including details on when to discontinue use.
