Certified 100% Organic Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus)
Citronella oil is one of the most common oils used in both homemade and used as one of the oldest effective commercial insect repellents. While citronella oil helps prevent mosquito bites, it does not kill mosquitoes. It repels these insects by blocking the scent that attracts these bugs, causing them to become disoriented.
It can also help provide relief from menstrual cramps and muscle spasms. Citronella works well for eliminating worms from the stomach and intestines. Citronella helps to reduce negative emotions while increasing energy. The lemony, warming and sweet smelling Citronella oil is extracted from its aromatic grassy leaves by steam distillation.
