Extracted from the stems and leaves of Cymbopogon Winterianus, Citronella Essential Oil is a fully natural bug repellent that can be used instead of those DEET heavy sprays and sticks.
Having antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties it can be used not only to ward off those pesky mosquitoes but also to treat insect bites and stings naturally. Not least, it has a pleasant odour that feels more like perfume.
Other uses also include surface sanitisation and it may help to relieve pain associated with arthritis.
Pregnant women should consult a doctor before using products that contain Citronella Essential Oil.
