The rich, crisp lemony scent of Citronella induces feelings of freshness, happiness, and hope. The citrus aroma removes bad odor and leaves behind a pleasant, fresh smell.
A green and fruity top note, citronella essential oil is distilled from a perennial grass native to south Asia. It is universally known to ward off insects, especially mosquitoes. Great for camping trips or dinner in the backyard.
Citronella has the reputation of being one of the most effective natural mosquito repellents in the world. That’s why many people choose to plant this aromatic beauty around their homes during the summer months. However, citronella has become so synonymous with lemon aroma that more than one plant bears the name! The citronella plant and citronella grass are two very different plants. The citronella plant is a blooming flower in the geranium family, while citronella grass is an ornamental grass. Both plants emit a lemony scent, but citronella grass produces true citronella oil.
