Want To Keep Those Pesty Outdoor Annoyances Away? Try The Back Porch Diffuser Blend Or Bug Off Spray!

This blend rocks! Years ago I tried burning citronella candles. Big FAIL! The smell gave me a headache from the harmful candle toxins. I'd move it further away and then the pesky annoyances would come back. Then I tried this "Back Porch Diffuser Blend." BAM! Awesome, smells great, toxin free and best of all...keeps those buggers away from me!

Want to make this blend? The best way is to grab a Premium Starter Bundle. That way you'll get a diffuser, 12 5ml bottles of essential oils (Purification and Peppermint are included. Add Citronella to your shopping cart before you check out.), essential oil samples and accessories that include 10 vials for sharing or just keeping with you since they are easy to carry. A 5ml bottle of essential oil contains approximately 85 drops. 


Citronella oil is steam distilled from the leafy parts of the citronella plant, also known as Cymbopogon nardus. Thanks to its fresh, welcoming aroma, Citronella essential oil is a common element in perfumes and cosmetic products and is well known for its use in outdoor candles, sprays, lotions, and other camping and outdoor essentials.

As a relative of Lemongrass, Citronella has a slight citrus scent that provides a pleasant and inviting experience whenever it’s used. Its versatility makes it a great household product to add to your beauty routine or to refresh indoor and outdoor spaces.
