Citronella Essential Oil: Citronella is commonly used as an insect
repellent (mosquitoes and fleas) but also helps with excessive perspiration
(when applied topically) and fatigue (when inhaled). Citronella has a lemon-like
aroma with a bitter kicker. Citronella is most well known for its use in candles
for use outside to discourage mosquitoes from biting. If you are making an
anti-bug candle, be sure to use at least 1.5 ounces of essential oil per pound
of wax. Citronella (the component that bugs don’t like) is higher in our Java
variety of Citronella compared to Ceylon Citronella.
