Citronella - There are two types of citronella: the Java type and the Ceylon type. We offer the Ceylon type. While the grass that produces the Java oil is grown in many parts of the tropical world, the Ceylon type is cultivated in Sri Lanka. The oils produced from the two types of grasses vary somewhat in composition, aroma and flavor. The odor of Ceylon citronella is fresh, grassy and warm-woody. It is preferred for scenting outdoor sprays, room sprays and household products. Java oil has a sweeter, more floral aroma which is preferred in perfumery. Aromatherapy benefits: purifying, vitalizing.
Because of its association with insect repellency, citronella is usually overlooked as an aromatherapy oil. That's a shame because citronella possesses warming and activating qualities on both the physical and mental levels. Like its closely related counterpart, essential oil lemongrass, citronella is astringent and can help with oily complexions. On a mental level the aroma of citronella can be gently clarifying.
