  • 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.

    Excellent oil!

    This is the 1st time with NOW Foods Citronella Oil. Wanted it to mix in for a homemade bug spray to ward off mosquitos. Seems this might work great come summer. Can't wait to try it.


    Pros

      Great quality oil. Mixes well with other oils.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
