Citronella Essential Oil Organic - 10 ml

Citronella essential oil, scientifically known as Cymbopogon winterianus, is a 100% pure essential oil extracted from the leaves and stems of the citronella plant.

This natural oil has a fresh, lemony scent and offers a multitude of benefits in aromatherapy and cosmetics.

One of its most well-known uses is as an effective insect repellent, keeping mosquitoes and other pests at bay. Besides this, Citronella essential oil possesses anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.

In modern aromatherapy, it is prized for its uplifting and stress-relieving effects, promoting a sense of calm and well-being.

Additionally, Citronella essential oil is often used in cosmetic formulations for its skin-soothing properties, helping to alleviate minor irritations and redness.

While not primarily used in perfumery, its refreshing aroma can contribute to the overall scent profile of various blends.
