Our Citronella Essential Oil is grown and extracted here in the Philippines. A close cousin of Lemongrass, Citronella has been used in fragrances for a very long time. Although its medicinal benefits aren’t popularly recognized, Citronella’s benefits mirror that of Lemongrass which are antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and anti-depressant properties.
Popularly known as an insect repellant, Citronella lives up to its reputation by warding of mosquitoes and other disease carrying insects. Highly recognizable because of its strong odor and lemony scent, Citronella can be combined with other essential oils to produce a more desirable smelling concoction.
To tell apart from Lemongrass, Citronella has red pigments on its stem while the Lemongrass has green. The leaves of Citronella are also wider compared to its cousin. Our Citronella Essential Oil comes from the farmers of Misamis Occidental.
