  • Citronella is the name given to a genus of tropical trees and bushes that‚ as a species‚ are known as lemongrass. As one would expect‚ the oil from Citronella has a characteristic lemony‚ citrus-like aroma that's made it a popular ingredient in candles and incense. Phytochemicals from Citronella are often used in perfumes and cosmetics. In some areas of the world Citronella oil is used as a natural‚ non-toxic insect repellent‚ although some countries still limit or prohibit its use for this purpose.

    In aromatherapy there are two prominent but different varieties used; Cymbopogon winterianus‚ also known as Java type‚ and Cymbopogon nardus‚ also known as Ceylon type. The difference between the two is in their phytochemical content. The Ceylon type has a higher level of gerianol‚ which gives this particular oil more of a floral undertone‚ whereas the Java type has a higher content of citronellal‚ which imparts more of an intense lemon aroma. We use Cymbopogon winterianus for a fresh‚ herbaceous‚ lemony aroma that's milder than actual lemon oil. It blends very well with Cedarwood‚ Lemon‚ Lemongrass‚ and Lavender oils‚ in addition to other oils.

    NOW® Solutions Citronella Oil is a pure and natural essential oil that's steam distilled from fresh‚ dried Citronella grass. This new four ounce size is perfect for those who enjoy the wonderful aromatherapy benefits of this popular essential oil.

    Product Highlights:
    - Clarifying‚ Freshening‚ Purifying.
    - Steam Distilled from Fresh Dried Citronella Grass.
    - Brisk‚ Lively‚ Citrus-Like Aroma.

    Great bug repellant.

    I make all natural candles, and Citronella Oil NOW Foods is amazing. I knew that citronella had qualities that keep bugs away, but this is some serious stuff! I went outside one night to see if mosquitoes were out they were. I live in South Georgia where they can get pretty bad, so I was hesitant about the oil. However, after putting a few drops of oil on me, no bugs touched me at all! It was amazing.


    Pros

      Smells great, blends well, keeps bugs away!

    Cons

      Pretty strong smell at first, but then you get used to it!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I use Citronella Oil by NOW Essential Oils on my porch in an oil scented diffuser to rid mosquitoes. I have read that it works as a diuretic and I plan to try that, also!


    Pros

      It works to repel mosquitoes! Many other uses I plan to try.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great scent and repels bugs!

    I add Citronella Oil by NOW Essential Oils to my home made bug soap and my home made bug spray. I've used other brands, but the NOW brand has never let me down. It's a high quality oil with a great scent (I purchased a very cheap oil once and regretted it). At PureFormulas I found this high quality oil at the cheapest price I've seen anywhere. Bugs will run from my family this summer thanks to NOW and PureFormulas!


    Pros

      Larger size (4 oz) that I have not found locally. High quality oil. Great scent that doesn't turn in soap.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
