A fresh, lemon aroma. An uplifting, antimicrobial and deodorising essential oil. An insect repellent.
Citronella essential oil has a powerfully sweet and lemony aroma, with a herbaceous undertone. Citronella essential oil is commonly used as an insect repellent. It is also antibacterial and deodorising, as well as being an affective flea spray for animals and used as a moth deterrent for clothes. The citronella grass is dried first and then steam distilled. The drying stage is important because it gives the essential oil the more favourable aroma. Citronella oil blends well with lemon, bergamot, orange, cedarwood and geranium. When blended with neroli or bergamot it is particularly softening to the skin.
Suggestions for use: Add 6-10 drops in a bath. Mix 5 drops with water to use in an oil burner. Mix 6-10 drops with hot water as an inhalation. Mix 5 drops per 10ml of carrier oil for massage.
Do not take internally. Keep away from children and eyes. If you pregnant or have a medical condition consult your practitioner before use.
