Botanical Name: Cymbopogon Winterianus Plant Part: Leaves Extraction Method: Steam Distilled Origin: Sri Lanka Color: Pale yellow to yellowish brown liquid. Many commercial repellents contain Citronella Ceylon, and it is often used in combination with Cedarwood to produce a pleasant smelling natural insect repellent. It will also be seen in soaps and candles, and it has common applications in massage. This oil can also help with minor infection, but is more commonly known for its ability to assist in combating colds and flu. Citronella can also be used for excessive perspiration and for conditioning oily skin and hair. Consistency: Light Note: Top Strength of Aroma: Medium Aromatic Scent: Citronella Ceylon Oil has a well rounded lemon citrus scent, though it is much softer than actual Lemon. It also has subtle wood tones. Cautions: Citronella may irritate sensitive skin. Avoid use during pregnancy.

I don't usually travel with my essential oils but this past 4th of July weekend I headed out to the desert to celebrate with my dad and I guess I mistakenly grabbed the citronella essential oil when I was reaching for all my makeup that I had set near the computer table. I was going to be spending a few days out there so I was rushing to pack and leave on time. In the afternoon probably 6pm it wasn't dark out but it was humid weather and you could see the bugs starting to come out. In particular the mosquitoes. I panicked and reached in my purse to grab my mint chapstick to dab on myself (just know that this does nothing but make me feel like it could POSSIBLY deter mosquitoes lol). I pulled out the makeup bag an in it was the citronella oil. Beside trying to figure out how it got in there I just dripped a few drops on to my finger tips and dabbed them across my neck and forehead and wrists just like perfume. To be totally honest I had no idea what I was doing. I just kind of thought...

Love this essential oil! I've used different oils for years and I've tried many that claim to protect from insects with mixed results. This citronella oil, however, has been wonderful! As you'll see in the video, I put a few drops in my diffuser when I'm sitting on the porch and the results are amazing. First of all, I don't get the nasty black smoke that usually accompanies the citronella candles that makes me cough and burns my eyes. Instead, there's a peaceful water vapor that smells good and also drives off those pesky mosquitoes and biting flies. Honestly, living in the midwest, we've avoided the outdoors, even our porch, because of how heavy the mosquitoes are. Yet, we didn't want to cover ourselves or our lawn with toxic chemicals. For us, that defeats the purpose of being outdoors. Now that we've found this we finally have some much needed relief from the bugs and are enjoying our summer. I did receive a discount to review this oil,...
Very good pure Citronella - it has a nice fresh citrusy smell and the mosquitos hate it, which makes it perfect for mixing your own anti-critter sprays. The recipe I am currently using is listed below in case anyone needs a good one that makes even tough Texas mosquitos take a hike. (And this is SO much better than anything with DEET - which causes you to feel grubby even if you manage to find one that doesn't reek. This oil based spray goes on smoothly and lasts for hours.)
3 oz misting spray bottle 10 drops Citronella oil or Lemongrass oil 10 drops Geranium oil 30 drops Tea Tree oil 1 TBS Vegetable Glycerine Fill remainder of bottle with water and shake well before using.
