Citronella - Organic Certified Essential Oil
Citronella oil is considered to be one of the more effective natural insect repellents. The oil also contains compounds like methyl isoeugenol that exert potent antibacterial effects, making citronella useful for treating minor cuts and scrapes or controlling body odor caused by bacteria.
When applied to the scalp, citronella oil can moisturize the skin and hair, preventing dryness, flaking, frizziness, and dandruff.
When used in aromatherapy, citronella oil is said to help prevent or treat a number of common health conditions, including:
- Difficulty urinating
- Menstrual cramps
- Muscle spasms
- Stomach ache
Some of these claims are better supported by research than others.
