CITRONELLA OIL

 

(CYMBOPOGON NARDUS)

 

Ingredient Origin - SRI LANKA

Ingredient Type - ESSENTIAL OIL

Extraction Method - STEAM DISTILLED

 

Description: Citronella Oil is extracted from a resilient grass (Cymbopogon nardus) native to Sri Lanka and Java. It is a very aromatic perennial that grows approximately 1 meter (3 feet) in height.

 

Aromatic Scent: Citronella Oil has a well rounded lemon citrus scent, though it is much softer than actual Lemon. It also has subtle wood tones.

 

Common Uses: Citronella Essential Oil is credited with having therapeutic properties as an antiseptic, deodorant, insecticide, parasitic, tonic and as a stimulant. Nonetheless, most people will associate it with its insecticide properties. Many commercial repellents contain Citronella , and it is often used in combination with Cedarwood to produce a pleasant smelling natural insect repellent. It will also be seen in soaps and candles, and it has common applications in massage. This oil can also help with minor infection, but is more commonly known for its ability to assist in combating colds and flu. Citronella can also be used for excessive perspiration and for conditioning oily skin and hair.
