I love these DIY Citronella Floating Candle Bowls! They remind me of my homemade potpourri recipe except with a floating candle. These are perfect for those summer bbqs, lounging by the pool or for a quiet candle-lit dinner on the patio.

What you need:
A glass bowl
Various herbs/fruit/flowers of your choice – I used fresh rosemary and rose petals from my garden, cinnamon sticks, and citrus peels
20 drops citronella essential oil
10 drops lemongrass essential oil
1 tablespoon witch hazel
1 unscented floating candle

Cut herbs/fruit/flowers into 2 inch pieces. Cinnamon sticks should be fine whole. Add the the bowl. Combine the witch hazel and essential oils and add to the bowl. Top off with water and a floating candle and enjoy 🙂
