Loving the Bug Out!… all-natural insect repellent candles and sprays

We’re all grateful for the long days and peaceful nights of summer!  What’s on our to-do list this season?  Everything from hiking, camping, swimming and boating to BBQ’s, beach and birthday parties.  Summer in Vermont is so short and we all try and get outside when the weather is nice as much as possible.

To make all of these activities enjoyable, it’s essential that we bring along insect repellent!  Think citronella or DEET are your only options?  Think again!  Way Out Wax offers 3 varieties of all-natural insect repellent candles (for patios, BBQs, beach, etc.) and sprays (for when you’re on the move) that really work.

Our Bug Out candles are made with our non-GMO soy wax and contain only pure essential oils.  The Bug Out sprays are water-based and also only contain pure essential oils.  NO CHEMICALS OR SYNTHETIC INGREDIENTS!  These are safe to use on children and pets as well (avoid contact with the eyes!).  Apply liberally and often for best results.

Here’s the rundown on your scent options:

  • Original: cedarwood, thyme, peppermint, rosemary and wintergreen essential oils.
  • Geranium: rosemary, lemongrass and geranium essential oils.
  • Hemp citronella: lemongrass and citronella essential oils plus hemp seed oil.

So get out and enjoy the summer with our Bug Out candles and sprays!  Check out the video above and then YOU decide… would you rather be buggin’ out or hanging’ out?

Organic Aromatherapy Soy Wax Candles from Way Out Wax!

Did you know that Way Out Wax makes an organic candle?  We created our True Organics line for the conscious consumer who wants to incorporate organics into all aspects of their lifestyle.

What makes these candles organic, you ask?  Great question!  Well, we start with certified non-GMO, pesticide-free soy wax (soy wax itself can’t be certified organic due to the change in chemical structure that occurs when converting soybean oil into a wax- but this is as close to organic as it gets!), then we add 100% certified organic essential oils, a cotton or hemp wick and THAT’S IT!  These candles are all meticulously handcrafted in our Vermont factory, just like the rest of our candles!  Once again, Way Out Wax is setting industry standards for excellence, environmental stewardship and innovative, uncompromising aromatherapy. We invite you to join us in supporting sustainable agriculture and socially responsible, earth-friendly business practices through your purchase of True Organics!

There are 6 amazing scents available in this line.

Jupiter Grove: Calming and soothing lavender meets uplifting and balancing valencia orange.

Zanzibar Mint: Spicy ginger blends with the cooling and uplifting notes of peppermint in a sophisticate, tantalizing concoction.

Sol Tranquility: Refreshing, sparkling citrus notes of Argentinian lemon, Australian litsea cubeba, white ginger peel, and spicy cinnamon bark dance with soothing base notes of lavender flowers to create a whimsical aromatherapy experience.

Oriental Jade: A majestic oriental fragrance which incorporates top notes of Orange Blossom (a representation of good fortune) and Chinese cinnamon bark with a heart of rose geranium and palmarosa enrobed in ylang ylang, warm patchouli, cedarwood and evergreen cypress.

Sicilian Mandarin: Zesty and tangy… a crisp base of green and red mandarin peel with a swirl of pink rose encompassed in a rich citrus melange of Brazilian orange, Argentinian lemon, and passionate pink grapefruit.

Mediterranean Sunrise: A sparkling top not of peppermint and litsea cubeba with a melange of bergamot, lemon, orange and pink grapefruit complemented by a heart of rose and warm palmarose kissed by a hint of sweet ylang.

Choose from three recycled and reusable containers (7.5 ounce frosted tumbler, 11ounce recycled glass and 8 ounce travel tin) with a choice between two label designs for each scent.  One design track is graphically based on a fleur-de-lis pattern, with organic lines and a color palette that follows the ancient spice route.  The second design track is based upon a set of six original watercolor paintings completed exclusively for and inspired by the organic essential oils line.  The paintings and designs were produced by northern Vermont artist Julie Ruth.

Which ones do we like best?  Staff picks include Zanzibar Mint, Sol Tranqulity and Jupiter Grove, but really all of them smell amazing!

  1. Bug Out – Keep bugs away the all-natural way! Our three blends utilize Mother Nature’s best defenses (essential oils) to effectively deter insects in a way that’s safe for you and the environment.
  2. Orange – This uplifting aroma helps to balance your spirit, I find that it smells yummy enough to eat, but we don’t recommend that.
  3. Lemongrass – Is our newest single scent, so new, it’s not landed on our website quite yet, but it is available in pillars and votives and we love it as it is a wonderful earthy, refreshing scent.  It can be ordered over the phone though… 1-888-727-1903!
  4. Lavender – Everyone loves lavender, or at least MOST people do!  This calming aroma will help relax you after a day of running around, gardening, or whatever you do!
  5. Clean Air – Our all-natural odor neutralizing candles and sprays are made with a proprietary blend of over 22 botanical essential oils!  They work hard to eat up foul smelling odors by absorbing them and leaving you with nothing but clean air!  This is our number one most sought after product; it is great to eliminate the smells of cooked fish, stinky pets and friends (no offense to them)!
