Many cultures value the medicinal use of the Citronella leaves for stimulation and insect repellents. It is also a refreshing and clarifying oil.

Citronella  (Cymbogon Nardus) has Antibacterial, Antispasmodic, Digestive stimulant, Anti-inflammatory, Antifungal and Insecticide properties.

Citronella grass has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to treat flatulence and colic.

Citronella comes in two main types - Java and Ceylon. This oil is from Sri Lanka, which is the only source of the Ceylon type, produced from the Lenabatu variety of citronella grass. Java-type is produced in many countries other than Indonesia, in particular China. 

Citronella grass grows up to 1.5 meters in height.

Citronella has a powerful lemony aroma which blends well with all citrus and woody oils and is very widely used in household cleaning products and insecticides.
