Citronella oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stems of the  Cymbopogon species of plants, especially Cymbopogon nardus. 

Citronella Organic Essential Oil is famous for top benefits below :

- Plant-based insect repellent

- Bio-pesticide with a non-toxic mode of action 

 Used in a vaporiser, it is known to dispel fatigue, headaches, and neuralgia, and create a mood of cheer and optimism.

Avoid use during pregnancy, and in children under 3. Do not consume internally.

Ancient cultures in India, Egypt, and elsewhere, where the Cymbopogon species of grasses grew used them to repel insects, especially mosquitoes. In those times, people settled near rivers, and water bodies. While this was a good thing in many ways, it also meant an abundance of insects, mosquitoes, which brought disease and killed people. So, the use of this grass as repellent was a matter of life and death at that time.
