CITRONELLA Essential Oil
Citronella is a grass that mainly grows in some Asian countries and some islands of the South Pacific. It has a rich, crisp lemony aroma and thus bears the name Citronella. The health benefits of Citronella Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antibacterial, antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, deodorant, diaphoretic, diuretic, febrifuge, fungicidal, insect repellent, stomachic, stimulant, tonic and vermifuge substance. You may use citronella by itself or mix it with other natural agents. People create their own natural insect repellent by combining citronella with other essential oils like lemongrass oil, peppermint, and vanillin.
