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.

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.
Great quality oil. Mixes well with other oils.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
