6 Chic Citronella Alternatives for Warding Off Mosquitos
We love enjoying our Southern summers outside on the front porch, preferably with a glass of sweet tea in hand. The only downside is all of the annoying bug bites that can often come from spending time outdoors during the warmer months. If you don’t care for the scent of citronella, and don’t want to cover yourself in bug spray, these products are for you. They are great alternatives for keeping you and your family safe from mosquitos and other insects without having to deal with the unpleasant aroma of citronella or bug spray.
