Looking for Citronella Candles

  1. #9
    MLBW Guest
    I have a citronella plant but it does not give off any odor--it only gives off odor if you pluck the leaves and rub them on you--this is pretty normal for these plants, I think. I want a candle so I can sit out on my balcony without being eaten by mosquitos (I live in a village near stagnant water with lots of mosquitos--you probably couldn't imagine!) In fact, I want a bunch of candles that I can burn on the roof of my house during a picnic or anywhere outside. In the States we use citronella torches that actually burn citronella oil.

    MLBW, I think there are some supermarkets which sell large citronella candles. They are usually so big that they are in a small tin bucket! I recall buying one several years ago but I'm not sure if the supermarkets still stock it.

    I'm sorry I can't help with tips on getting the candles in Kowloon or the NT. I'll swing by the shop at Lyndhurst Terrace and check out the prices for you.

    Maybe B&Q in the garden section?

    I just checked: The Candle Shop at Lyndhurst Terrace has a 3x3 inch citronella candle going for $55. There is a larger one but I didn't check the price.

    Hope this helps.

    You might have already found Citronella candles but I was looking for them myself recently and found a shop selling them locally (Kam Tin Town near Yuen Long) I was so happy to find the shop so I would like to share the information with you.

    The shop is called Angel Candle and located in Red Brick House, Lot No. 398-400, Tai Hong Vill., Kam Sheung Road, Kam Tin

    They have
    Scetned: Citronella
    Pillar 3x3" $HKD 38.00
    Pillar 3x6" $HKD 56.00
    Tealight(9pc / box) (Plastic Cup): Size Dia. 3.5cm X H 1.5cm $HKD 35.00

    The shop seems to be open only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

    Hope the above is useful.
