Citronella Nardus Essential Oil

Adam Michael has this to say “Citronella essential oil is obtained from the scented grass which grows wild and is cultivated in Sri Lanka and other tropical areas. The colour is yellow brown with a very powerful sweet lemony scent. The main chemical constituents are citronellal and geraniol, with traces of other chemicals which vary as several varieties of the grass are used. Used extensively as an insect repellent and said to be good for those that suffer from excessive sweating which is why you will find it in most deodorants.”
