    Product Information

    Citronella Organic Pure Essential Oil (10ml) - Cymbopogon Nardus

    Citronella has a refreshingly sweet and soft lemony aroma.

    Most popularly used as an insect repellent, its uplifting properties can help clear the mind and ease feelings of depression and self doubt. Citronella can be useful to keep in a linen cupboard to keep clothing and fabric fresher, whilst deterring flying insects or moths. Lovely as an air freshener, it is also known to have deodorizing properties which can refresh tired and sweaty feet.

    Origin & History
    Citronella is mainly grown in India, Sri Lanka and Java, distilled from the dried leaves of a hardy grass. It was introduced to Europe during the nineteenth century but before this it was also traditionally used within Chinese medicine. In modern day, it is now widely used within deodorants, soaps, perfumes and is also a popular ingredient within wax candles.

    Blending Suggestions
    Citronella blends well with other members of the citrus family such as, grapefruit, lemon, lime, neroli, orange, pettigrain, mandarin and tangerine.

    How to Store Your Oils: Essential oils can be quite delicate substances and factors such as strong light, heat, air and moisture can affect them. They are best kept in a cool, dark and dry place ideally in a box and in a cupboard. We wouldn't recommend transferring your essential oils into plastic bottles as the plastic can interact with the chemical makeup of your essential oils and may cause the plastic to deteriorate. Keeping them in their dark, amber bottle with the lid will prolong their life. Oils that are stored in the correct condition should last for years (citrus oils have a slightly shorter life).

    Size: 10ml, presented in an amber glass bottle.

    Extra Information: Not Tested on Animals, Manufactured in the UK. (For more information on Natural by Nature Oils, please see below).

    Safety Precautions: Citronella is best used in lower concentrations as it may cause irritate for those with sensitive skin.

    Do not use undiluted on the skin. Do not take internally without medical supervision. Keep away from eyes. Keep out of the reach of children. Seek advice during pregnancy.
