Citronella java (Citronella winterianus) essential oil has a lemony aroma and cleansing, protecting properties. It’s great for outdoor diffusions and sprays, and also finds its way in soothing body care blends.
The key constituents of citronella essential oil are citronellal and geraniol.
Citronella combines well with many other essential oils including lavender, tea tree, lemongrass, sandalwood, lemon eucalyptus, geranium and vetiver.
It is relatively safe to use but can be slightly irritating, so diluting properly is highly recommended (see dilution guide below).
Citronella is generally considered a middle note oil.
