Outdoor entertaining is a summer staple. There's nothing we value more than lounging on the best outdoor furniture with loved ones, reconnecting with one another after a very isolating 16+ months indoors. 

It's something we don't just want to do, we need to do, and the last thing we want is mosquitoes interrupting our good time. 

The solution? Not just picking up the best candles, but these Village Candle citronella candles that will keep the bugs at bay and the good times rolling. 

Featured in the brand-new July release, the Bamboo Garden, Lemon Cedar, and Summer Nights candle are all excellent suggestions when looking to repel mosquitoes on a warm summer night.

Designed sharply in a sleek silver metal tin, one of the most favorable aspects it's how accomodating these candles can (and will) be. Unlike traditional glass vessels, the tin design allows you to place the candle on any table or deck directly, without fear of breaking any glass. 

It's the ultimate win-win, but if you don't believe us? We're breaking down the Village Candle citronella candles below so you can see them in their full glory yourself.
