Plant Therapy Citronella Essential Oil
Citronella is often used in soaps and candles because of its fresh scent. It can help to support a healthy respiratory system and also aid in relaxation. Used topically, Citronella can make your time spent outdoors more pleasant.
Combine equal parts of Citronella, Lemongrass and Cinnamon Leaf, add to water or witch hazel, and spray around the perimeter to make your outdoor gatherings more pleasant.
To help promote a clean environment in your home during seasonal illness threats, diffuse equal parts of Citronella and Cinnamon Leaf into the air.
Dilute to 1-3%. Add Citronella to your favorite carrier oil to help with underarm perspiration. Add 1 drop of Citronella and 2 drops of Tea Tree to 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil or aloe vera gel to use on funky toenails that result from being barefoot in shared showers or swimming pool areas.

Purchased a 30ml bottle of Citronella to be diffused around the house as a pest deterrence and was not disappointed at the pleasant scent!
I quite love this essence and usually use it to drive the mosquitoes out :). I have no idea whether they actually run away but I still use it
Strong scented! Good product!
Very effective for getting rid of mozzies! A few drops into the diffuser and see it work its magic!
