Banish bugs with Citronella candles

There’s nothing worse than sitting outside on warm summer days and being pestered by bugs and insects.

One of the best ways of warding them off is to burn citronella candles – the fragrance is pleasant for humans, but not for bugs – and the candles make the perfect accompaniment on a balmy summer evening, as the light fades away.

This set of three mini citronella candles will ensure you’re well stocked for a while. They’re available from Patchwork Harmony for £8.25.
