"Citronella is a grass that mainly grows in some Asian countries and some islands of the South Pacific. It has a rich, crisp lemony aroma and thus bears the name citronella. The essential oil of citronella is extracted from two varieties of citronella. The first one is the Ceylon variety, whose scientific name is Cymbopogon nardus and the second one is Java variety, called Cymbopogon winterianus in botanical terminology. In both cases, the essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the fresh plant.
Citronella oil has medicinal characteristics. It prevents the formation or growth of fungal infection that arises in cases of ringworm or athlete’s foot. It is also used to clean wounds as a disinfectant. Studies state that Citronella essential oil shows the potentials of being an environmentally friendly and safe fungicide.
Did you know that the word Citronella is derived from the French word which means “Lemon Balm”? The fresh and fruity lemon-based scent of the Citronella essential oil is known to uplift the atmosphere of the surroundings and keep negative emotions and thoughts at bay."
