Citronella Oil has been used for centuries in Sri Lanka, China and Indonesia for its reported benefits.

Citronella Essential Oil is a popular oil used in aromatherapy. Used in a diffuser, vaporiser or oil burner, it is said that its relaxant qualities can help create a calming atmosphere. It has a soothing, cleansing and refreshing aroma.

Citronella is a good essential oil for massage. When blended with a carrier oil, it can help maximise the benefits of massage.

In skincare, Citronella Oil is said to help cleanse and tone the skin. It can be used as an ingredient in your homemade skincare formulations like creams, cleansers, balms, body oils, scrubs etc.

Citronella Oil is believed to be a useful additive to your hair care regime. It has a purifying quality that makes it effective for cleansing and conditioning your hair naturally.


Dilute at a percentage of 1% of the finished blend, typically 20 drops or 1ml of essential oil to 100ml of carrier oil. Do not use undiluted on the skin. You can use up to 2% dilution for use on your body or in the bath.


Diluted with a carrier oil, Citronella can be blended with your favourite essential oils to make your own massage oil blend. We recommend Sweet Almond (#215), Grapeseed (#210) or Coconut Oil (#203).


Add a few drops to your diffuser or oil burner and immerse yourself in the soothing and relaxing aroma of Citronella.


Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner or make your own hair care blend.


As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.
