Citronella Essential Oil
Botanical name: Cymbopogon Nardus
Pure therapeutic grade essential oil
Citronella essential oil is best known for its ability to naturally repel insects and fight bacteria and fungi making it great for use in the home and elsewhere. When diffused in the air, it can also promote relaxation and fight respiratory infections. On the skin, it is known to also fight bacteria and fungi, free radical damage and premature aging and reduce inflammation and muscle pain.
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils are what give a plant its characteristic odour and contain the healing power of the plant from which it was extracted. At Conatural, vigorous checks are made throughout the entire process of sourcing pure essential oils. When used correctly, essential oils bring a wide range of health benefits.
Conatural Essential Oils can be used topically (combined with carrier oils and moisturisers) and externally (i.e. around the home).
- Add 5-7 drops to a diffuser filled with water.
- Like above, but instead, use reed diffusers in a container of carrier oil with 3-5 drops of essential oil.
- For massage: Dilute 15 drops in 50 ml of your favourite carrier oil for face and body.
