Citronella Oil



Citronella oil is one of the essential oils obtained from the leaves and stems of different species of Cymbopogan. The oil is used extensively as a source of perfumery. It contains the chemicals such as citronellal, citronellol and geraniol. These chemicals find extensive use in soap, perfumery, cosmetic and flavoring industries throughout the world. Citronella oil is also a renowned plant -based insect repellent and has been registered for this use in the United States since 1948. The United states Environmental Protection agency considers oil of citronella as a bio -pesticide with a non-toxic mode of action. Research also shows that citronella oil has strong anti fungal properties, and is effective in calming barking dogs.
