Coffee Mosquito Repellent Campfire Sticks

Coffee Mosquito Repellent Campfire Sticks


  • Ground Coffee (any brand or type) – 1 cup
  • Wax (paraffin or beeswax) – 1/2 cup
  • Candle wick or cotton string – 1 piece (about 8 inches long)
  • Heat-safe bowl or container
  • Double boiler or microwave-safe bowl for melting wax


  1. Prepare the Wick:
    • Cut the candle wick or cotton string to a length of about 8 inches.
    • Place the wick in the center of the heat-safe bowl, ensuring it’s tall enough to extend above the melted wax.
  2. Combine Coffee and Wax:
    • In a double boiler or microwave-safe bowl, melt the wax until it becomes a liquid.
    • Stir in the ground coffee, ensuring it’s evenly mixed with the melted wax.
  3. Create the Campfire Stick:
    • Pour the coffee-wax mixture into the heat-safe bowl, covering the wick.
    • Allow the mixture to cool and solidify, forming a coffee-infused campfire stick.
  4. Trim and Light the Wick:
    • Once the mixture has hardened, trim the wick, leaving about half an inch above the surface.
    • Light the wick, and let the coffee-infused stick start producing smoke.
  5. Use as Mosquito Repellent:
    • Place the coffee campfire stick in a secure spot at your campsite.
    • Allow the steady stream of coffee-scented smoke to repel mosquitoes in the surrounding area.
  6. Enjoy Bug-Free Camping:
    • Sit back, relax, and enjoy your bug-free camping experience without the need for sticky sprays or harsh chemicals.

Note: Ensure proper ventilation and follow fire safety precautions while using the coffee campfire stick. Use in outdoor settings only, and never leave the burning stick unattended. The coffee-scented smoke should help keep mosquitoes at bay, providing a natural and aromatic solution for your camping adventures
