If there's one thing we're not fans of when it comes to summer, it's mosquitoes. Those pesky little insects can easily put a damper on your outdoor fun, whether you're spending the afternoon in the park or camping for the weekend. But thanks to citronella, we can keep mosquitoes at bay all summer long. The lemongrass variety naturally repels mosquitoes, making it the perfect alternative to harsh chemicals.
