Citronella oil is said to have many different qualities. If diluted in a base oil, when itís put onto skin it can create a mild warming sensation which can be used to help alleviate physical muscle and joint pain. In addition, the smell of this oil can assist with nervous fatigue as it has clarifying properties. Some people even use it to ease pressure from headaches and migraines. Oils which often blend nicely with citronella include orange, lemon, geranium, bergamot and cedarwood. Citronella oil has very low toxic levels and isnít used in large amounts so it has a minimal or no risk to the environment and wildlife. So it can be used at home without any adverse effects expected.
Directions: Dilute at least 1 to 6 before applying to skin. Can be used in any oil diffusers or burners. Add to base oil for massage or bathing. Can be added to any cream, shampoo, etc. Top up incognito or any other natural insect repellent for greater efficacy. Add a few drops to your clothes or luggage to keep them smelling fresh and unwanted small visitors away.
Caution: Pure organic essential oil; always carry out a patch test when diluting and dilute further if any irritation occurs. Stop using if irritation continues.
