Lemongrass and Sage - sherberty aroma in essential oils renowned to repel midges/wasps/ticks and flies etc. Our best seller given our location on the West Coast of Scotland.
Cedarwood and Rosemary - sharp herbal aroma in essential oils to repel crawly critters - spiders and cockroaches etc.
Peppermint and Spearmint - think Moroccan Mint Tea - a good general deterrent but also helpful if you live near bee hives and your garden is over run with bees.
All three aroma blends are also fab at eliminating stale cooking odours naturally.
A substantial net wax weight of 200 g. 50 hour burn time.
The term Beastie Blaster is whimsical and doesn't mean we aim to harm or destroy any insects etc. We use only botanically sourced ingredients, components that arise in nature. Pure sustainable Soy Wax with Pure Essential Oils. Most other insect deterrent candles are composed largely of petrochemical based paraffin wax, pesticides and synthetic petrochemical based fragrances which create toxic emissions perilous to the entire eco system including humans. Note that Citronella was via EU biocidal regulations banned for use in insect repellent products many years ago.
Many of our customers get quite dramatic allergic reactions to stings and bites and they feel using our products helps protect them from this risk.
Zing has never used Citronella in any of their products and we don't particularly like the smell anyway.
See the FAQ page on our website for more information regarding the ongoing relationship in regard to purity testing of our products by The Chemistry Clinic at Strathclyde University in Glasgow. We believe we're the only eco home fragrancing brand to take this important step to protect ourselves, our own families and our customers.
