Citronella essential oil (100%) is a fresh, citrus-scented essential oil obtained from Cymbopogon nardus or Cymbopogon winterianus plants. This essential oil consists of high quality and natural ingredients extracted from carefully selected plants.
Citronella essential oil is particularly known for its insect repellent properties, which is why it is often used to keep mosquitoes and other insects away. It also has a refreshing and invigorating effect that creates a pleasant atmosphere.
Suggestions for use:
- Insect repellent spray: Mix a few drops of citronella essential oil with water in a spray bottle, then spray on skin, clothes or the surrounding area. This can help keep mosquitoes and other annoying insects away during summer evenings.
- Aromatherapy: Add a few drops of citronella essential oil to an aroma lamp or vaporizer to evoke a fresh citrus scent in the room. This can help refresh the mind, relieve stress and create a pleasant atmosphere.
- Massage oil: Mix a few drops of citronella essential oil with a carrier oil such as almond oil or coconut oil and use as a massage oil. The refreshing effect of the essential oil can help relax the body and mind.
- Use externally only. Do not swallow or use internally.
- Avoid direct contact with eyes. If the essential oil gets into the eyes, rinse thoroughly with water and, if necessary, consult a doctor.
- Keep away from small children. For children, always dilute the essential oil before applying it to skin or clothing.
- In case of pregnancy or health problems, consult your doctor before using the essential oil.
