Citronella comes in two main types – Java and Ceylon. We have introduced an oil from Sri Lanka, which is the only source of the Ceylon type, produced from the Lenabatu variety of citronella grass. Java-type is produced in many countries other than Indonesia, in particular China.

Citronella grass grows up to 1.5 meters in height.

Citronella has a powerful lemony aroma which blends well with all citrus and woody oils and is very widely used in household cleaning products and insecticides.

For a natural air freshener – add 3 drops of Citronella, 3 drops of Geranium and 2 drops of Pine to a clean plant spray filled with water, shake well and spray into the air. Avoid polished surfaces and pets.

Or, try 2 drops of Citronella, 2 drops of Cedarwood and 2 drops of Eucalyptus Citriodora in an oil burner or diffuser, this can help maintain an insect-free BBQ.
