Citronella is often used in soaps and candles because of its fresh scent.  It can help to support a healthy respiratory system and also aid in relaxation. Used topically, Citronella can make your time spent outdoors more pleasant.

See our organic version here.

To learn more about our Citronella's uses and benefits, check out our Citronella essential oil spotlight blog post.
Combine equal parts of Citronella, Lemongrass and Cinnamon Leaf, add to water or witch hazel, and spray around the perimeter to make your outdoor gatherings more pleasant.

To help promote a clean environment in your home during seasonal illness threats, diffuse equal parts of Citronella and Cinnamon Leaf into the air.

Add Citronella to your favorite carrier oil to help with underarm perspiration. Add 1 drop of Citronella and 2 drops of Tea Tree to 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil or aloe vera gel to use on funky toenails that result from being barefoot in shared showers or swimming pool areas.

5.0 5  Citronella

5.0 5  Thrilled With the Quality

I'm so happy with the quality of all the PT products I've ordered. The citronella oil is another great example of that. My kids and grandkids are camping all summer, and were thrilled that I was able to supply them with a safe alternative to conventional bug sprays that actually worked. That makes me really happy, too!

4.0 5  Smells just like expected

I don’t necessarily love the smell of citronella but I am excited to use this to keep the mosquitos away this summer. I’m planning on making some incense to put outside and maybe using it in some diy “buzz off” lotion bars.

5.0 5  Not overwhelming

In the "old days", we would use a citronella oil during outdoor Tai Chi classes, but the scent was so overpowering I had to stop using it. This scent is not bad, and definitely not too strong. I just haven't tried it outdoors to see if it repels the bugs. I'll wear it on my next hike.

recommend  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
