This calming oil is wildcrafted in Indonesia and has a lemony, woody and sweet aroma which is why perfumers love it. Most people associate citronella with an insect repellent, but it is also beneficial in clearing the mind, in softening skin and as a room freshener. Emotionally, citronella is known to ease feelings of depression and is stimulating to the mind to reduce negative feelings. It is very aromatic, so a little goes a long way.
Botanical Name: Cymbopogon nardus
