Some information on citronella
Citronella is a large aromatic herbaceous plant from tropical regions (Indonesia, Java, etc.). The scent of Java lemongrass essential oil is initially rather sweet, with notes of grass, a little bit of pungency and a lemony background. Its yield is good. The essential oil is used for its anti-inflammatory, mosquito repellent and airborne antiseptic properties. It is also widely used in perfumery as an aromatic base for soaps.
Powerful and lemony, lemongrass essential oil smells fresh. But be careful, don't overuse it! Its strong odour and volatile properties can quickly become unpleasant.
*The chemotype is the identity card of the essential oil, its chemical composition defined by chromatographic analysis. The same plant can have several compositions depending on the place and the variety. A chemotype depends on a property, an odour and a taste.

100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.
Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
