Your Bag is Empty

Candles are always a lovely decorative addition inside the house, especially scented ones, as they lend a pleasant aroma and make the home even more relaxing. But did you know that candles are just as useful outdoors as they are indoors? If you have an outdoor living space, having the best soy candles can really make a difference in how you spend your time there. 

In this post, Lovespoon Candles shares some of the reasons you need some candles outdoors:

The Right Choice of Candle Can Keep Bugs Away 

One of the reasons people hesitate to hang out in their patio or garden is that they don’t want to be bothered by mosquitoes and other bugs. Many do not realize that this problem can be easily solved by getting the right scented candles.

For one, certain scents repel mosquitoes. These include citronella, lemongrass, lemon, lavender, lime, and peppermint. Bugs don’t like strong and citrusy aromas because they get overwhelmed by them. Additionally, such strong scents conceal the smell of humans, so it won’t be as easy for mosquitoes to find and bite you.

Among these, citronella may be your best bet. Even the National Pesticide Information Center agrees that the oil from citronella works wonders to mask scents that attract insects. In addition to your candle, you might want to consider using citronella oil holders with wicks or even those small torches. These can also deter insects effectively and are an excellent option for when you’re holding a small party outdoors as they provide extra lighting.

Don’t forget to use candles and torches safely, though, as they are a potential fire hazard.

They Can Help You Set a Romantic Mood Outdoors 

The recent events may have dampened your plans for a romantic vacation or date. You can rekindle romance by setting a nice dinner right in your yard. Scented candles can help you set the mood. Not only will the soft lighting make the space look more relaxing and intimate, but the scent will also add to the romantic air you want to achieve. You can choose some floral scents and add vanilla to the mix and you’ll get the perfect ambiance for a date. You’d be surprised to see how adding a few candles can transform your ordinary dinner into a romantic date.

They Can Make Your Events More Festive 

Whether you’re having a small family reunion or an intimate backyard wedding, candles can take your event to the next level. For instance, tapered candles in the color of your choice make for a classic centerpiece. Incorporate candles with your floral arrangements, and you get a unique table décor. You can also line up some scented candles along the pathway and greet your guests with the elegant scent of roses or the scent of coconuts if you’re going for some beach vibes for your event.


As you can see, candles are not just for indoor use. With some creativity, they can be the perfect addition to your outdoor space. Whether you are holding a small event, you simply want to destress with a glass of wine on your own, have a romantic date with your loved one, or simply drive away bugs while you’re relaxing outdoors, you’ll find candles useful. Before you buy candles, though, make sure your family knows how to use them safely. Never leave a lit candle unattended and use holders that are actually designed to hold candles. Remember to put your candles on stable and heat-resistant surfaces, too. And finally, remind kids never to light them on their own.
