Stick blenders can help to incorporate fragrance back into the soap in the event that it rices during the mixing process.

Reviewer: Barbara Schultz from Parkersburg, WV USA 04/03/15

This is STRONG. I decided to make candles inside using this fragrance since we have had a lot of rain here lately and it's impossible to do anything outdoors right now. After all, How bad could it be ! right? My suggestion; for the love of GOD, wait until the weather is nice and make these OUTSIDE. Run an extension cord out in your yard or patio if you have no electric outside, but whatever you do make your products outside or in a very ventilated area, using this fragrance. This is some powerful stuff and if it doesn't keep the flying and crawling critters away I have no idea what will than. This is the best I have ever smelled in this fragrance and the price is great. I will be purchasing more of this.

Reviewer: A viewer from Doylestown, PA US 10/12/13

well i finally received this item, went outside and sprayed around some windows and this stuff seemed to attract more stinkbugs...well they eventually died but it took so long. I need Thyme, cinnamon,wintergreen,rosemary oils. these are the ingredients in one product that kills/repels stinkbugs. thanks

and yes this citronella is extremely strong. No mosquitoes or any other bugs were bothering me while i was outside doing yard work in the evening.

Citronella, really does work. It doesnt really rain here in phoenix, but when it does the bugs come out. I took some of this scent on cotton balls and laid them on the table and no bugs came around the cotton balls. Cant wait to make soap and send it back up to wisconsin.
