Citronella is renowned for its insect repelling qualities and is a firm favourite of campers and wanderlusts alike. However, this versatile citrus essential oil can also be used to benefit both body and mind, with the practice of aromatherapy.
Extracted from the leaves of a grass-like plant, native to Sri Lanka, the benefits of this essential oil have been used in traditional medicines for generations. Used in a massage blend, Citronella will help to soothe tension and relieve aching muscles. In a vaporisation blend it will cleanse and refresh a room and enliven the spirits.
