When I think of Citronella it immediately invokes memories of those tiki torches and the like that repel mosquitos and biting insects….but it can be used for so much more than that. Citronella is a grass that mainly grows in some Asian countries and some islands of the South Pacific. It has a rich, crisp lemony aroma. The oil is obtained by steam distilling fresh, dried citronella grass. The main producers of this essential oil are China and Indonesia but in smaller amounts it is produced by certain other Asian, South & Latin American and African countries. 

NOW Essential Oil’s Citronella Oil is 100% Pure Citronella (Cymbopogon) Oil and is in a 1 ounce amber-colored bottle. This oil’s suggested use is for aromatherapy. This Oil is intended to be diluted with one of the carrier oils. In this case, Cedarwood oil, Lavender oil, Lemon oil Or Lemongrass oil work well. 

This oil can be used in treatment of problems such as:

• Oily skin
