Citronella – not just an insect repellent
Diluted and applied each hour to skin, Citronella can discourage bugs as well as head and skin lice and when used in hair care formulations can eliminate excess sebum build up and add shine to dull hair. With its antifungal abilities, Citronella can fight dry and itchy scalp conditions and kill infections.
As an antiseptic, it kills skin infections, caused by scratches and bites. It tightens pores making skin appear smoother and works as a excellent skin antioxidant.
With anti-fungal properties Citronella can sanitise surfaces to minimise the spread of bacteria in both bathroom and kitchen areas. Used as a room spray this oil works to deodorise rooms, leaving a fresh and clean fragrance while also disinfecting germs so they can’t reproduce.
Used for arthritis, joint and muscle pain to reduce inflammation by improving blood circulation and minimising pain.
