Citronella is a robust lemony-sweet top note that emerges above the rest. Its unmistakably fresh yet warm scent is grounded by an underlying light woodiness that gradually surfaces.
- Citronella stimulates blood circulation, metabolic rate and activity in the nervous system and supports the secretion of bile, enzymes and digestive acids, which work together to improve the efficiency of the digestive system. Known to be the most effective insect and mosquito repellent among all essential oils.
