citronella essential oil


Citronella essential oil is most ideal for repelling little things that bite but has also been used to treat rheumatic pain in Chinese medicine.

Furthermore, Citronella oil helps to clear the mind and has a general toning and tonic effect on the body. It is helpful with colds, flu and minor infections and also has deodorising qualities. It may be used for combating excessive perspiration and for balancing oily skin.
