Citronella Essential Oil


Citronella Essential Oil

INCI name: Cymbopogon winterianus Oil

Country of Origin: Vietnam

Use: A powerful, clearing, refreshing oil. It's very anti-microbial in action so useful in a burner or diffusor to protect from bugs. It's also commonly used as a mosquito repellent due to its insecticidal properties. It can be blended with lavender in an aftersun lotion to protect from insect bites.

Scent: Fresh, clearing, lemony.

Cautions: Dilute in a carrier oil before using on your skin (including in the bath). Can be sensitising to the skin, so do not use above 2% in a blend.
