Citronella essential oil is steam distilled from a fragrant grass similar to lemongrass, but with a sweeter scent. It is commonly used in soap manufacturing, perfumery, and as an insect repellent. Studies have shown citronella oil to be strongly antifungal and antibacterial and has even demonstrated the ability to calm barking dogs.
Citronella essential oil is an excellent addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, insect repellent, and aromatherapy.
