Citronella oil properties

Citronella essential oil comes from an aromatic plant whose best-known use is as a mosquito repellent, due to its intense citrus scent. However, in areas such as India or Sri Lanka, this plant and its essential oil are used as a therapeutic ingredient for consumption or topical use.

Among its properties are such as antifungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-mosquito and purifying the environment.

Citronella is a plant of the grass species that has several varieties; among the best known are the Cymbopogon genus, Cymbopogon nardus and Cymbopogon winterianus.

Citronella essential oil is very versatile. It has different uses either by diffusion or by topical use. We invite you to see the tips for use in order to get the best out of the therapeutic properties of this wonderful oil.

As we always recommend essential oils in the case of topical use, we recommend that we first read the recommended doses and if we apply to the skin, carry out a test on a small area before applying in a larger way.

Citronella essential oil against mosquitoes is a good repellent that must be applied frequently to be effective.

Citronella oil appears to be an effective antifungal agent. Whether to apply to nails or DIY in your home, it is a very useful oil in this regard.
