INCI Name: Cymbopogon nardus (Citronella) Leaf Oil
Native to Sri Lanka, this lemon-scented grass is a close relative of Lemongrass and Palmarosa. It is extracted from a resilient grass native to Sri Lanka and Java. In traditional Sri Lankan medicine, crushed leaves were used to heal wounds.
Citronella's lovely, soothing scent has been appreciated throughout history, and it is once again becoming a product of choice for health-conscious customers.
Steamed- distilled from leaves, it has a well-rounded lemon citrus scent, though it is much softer than actual Lemon, and it has subtle woody notes.
Citronella Essential Oil is credited with having beneficial aromatic properties and most people will associate it with its delightful scent. It is often used in combination with Cedarwood to produce pleasant-smelling patio candles and torches. Citronella is also used in smaller amounts in deodorants, and in products for oily skin and hair.
To ease physical exhaustion, add 2 drops Citronella and 4 drops Myrtle to a warm bath.
Citronella blends well with: Bergamot, Orange, Cedarwood, Geranium, Lemon, Lavender and Pine.
Safety First: Citronella may irritate sensitive skin. Avoid it in baths or massage if you have sensitive skin or have allergic reactions to grasses and pollens; it may be sensitizing to those with hay fever. Always dilute appropriately before applying to the skin. Do not use if pregnant or if taking medication without consulting with your health-care practitioner.
