Product Description

Country of Origin: Sri Lanka Botanical Name: Cymbopogon Nardus

Many cultures value the medicinal use of the Citronella leaves for stimulation and insect repellents. It is fresh, powerful, lemony in scent and yellowish-brown in colour. It is also a refreshing and clarifying oil.
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 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.
