Aromatherapy Properties: Citronella is known for its deodorizing and bug repelling properties. It is also used by the perfumery industry as a fresh, bright, top note.
Suggested Use: Use citronella essential oil in bug-repelling blends with essential oils like cedarwood, lavender, patchouli, and eucalyptus. It can also be added to cleaning products and recipes for a freshening scent. Try a few drops in a laundry soap or all-purpose cleaner.
