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.
