Citronella, known for its crisp aroma, is a unique profile that recalls both lemon and wood scents. A tall grass native to tropical climates in southern Asia, Citronella is popular as a surface cleaner and as a natural insect repellent, as its oil helps to mask human scent from insect receptors. Citronella can also be used for its antifungal properties and diffused to create an uplifting aroma in the home.
