Some information on citronella

Citronnelle de Java

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.


Geraniol, citronellal
*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.


Tinted bottle of 30 ml or 100 ml. Also available in 10 ml With AB logo.

Our supplier, the company Aroma Plantes, guarantees that the essential oil of Citronella is 100% pure, natural and organically grown. Moreover, this essential oil has been controlled and certified AB for the company Aroma Plantes.

In order to comply with the regulations in force, the essential oils under the Penn'Ty Bio label are sold exclusively for diffusion (category: air freshener - household products).

You will not find any expiration date on our bottles, for the simple reason that a well preserved essential oil keeps its properties for at least 3 years and that our stock has a rotation of about 15 days.


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.

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. 

Essential oils can help you

Essential oils are mainly used to help you treat many disorders. But be careful, even though essential oils are often extracted from edible plants, their concentrations mean that you have to be careful and respect their healing power. The use of essential oils is relatively simple and if you follow some basic rules, they will put their therapeutic genius at your disposal. Covering with essential oils has more advantages than disadvantages. 

General precautions on the diffusion of essential oils

In case of allergy, in particular respiratory, the greatest caution is required for this method of use. The advice of a specialist is then recommended. Do not use essential oils that are aggressive to the mucous membranes (essential oils rich in phenols or aldehydes).

Réponse de Penn'Ty Bio

nous sommes désolés de votre mésaventure. Les huiles essentielles sont des actifs très puissants et peuvent être irritantes pour la peau. La sensibilité vis à vis d'une huile essentielle est propre à chacun.
L'huile essentielle de citronnelle doit être suffisamment diluée afin d'être ni irritante, ni échauffante pour la peau.
Nous vous rappelons que "afin d'être conforme avec la réglementation en vigueur, toutes les huiles essentielles Pennty Bio sont vendues exclusivement pour la diffusion (désodorisant d'intérieur - produits ménagers). Le laboratoire GRAVIER, notre fournisseur exclusif, nous garanti que toutes ces huiles essentielles sont 100% pures, naturelles et Issues de l'Agriculture Biologique.”
Puisque vous semblez sensible à l'huil essentielle de citronnelle et afin de vous protéger des moustiques, nous vous conseillons plutôt d'utiliser le diffuseur éponge Moustiques - Direct nature, vraiment très efficace et en complément le spray lotion anti-moustiques pour la peau Pennty Bio.
A bientôt.


citronnelle espérée tolérée anti moustique

ma peau rougit et gratte violemment malgré les conseils de diluer 1 à 2 gouttes d h e de citronnelle avec de l huile (colza ou olive bio pour ma part). Aucune allergie avérée à la citronelles, mais toux, démangeaisons et très mauvaise nuit suite à ces 2 gouttes dans l espoir de faire fuir les 2 minis moustiques belges qui cherchaient mon bon 'sang sucré'.. Même les piqûres démangent moins que ma réaction à cette h.e.POURQUOI??
