Incognito Organic Java Citronella Oil is ideal for use in oil diffusers or burners as an aid to dispersing insects. It can also be applied to your skin as an insect repellent when diluted with a base oil by at least 1 in 6 and patch tested for sensitivity beforehand. It is particularly useful for adding to shampoo or conditioner to discourage insects from getting in amongst your hair, and adding a few drops to your clothes or luggage will help it stay fresh whilst also keeping the insects away.
In aromatherapy citronella oil is said to possess activating and warming qualities both physically and mentally. Diluted in a base oil such as almond oil, citronella oil applied to the skin produces a mild sensation of warmth – which relieves painful muscles and joints. Mentally, the aroma of citronella oil may help with nervous fatigue due to its clarifying properties. It can also ease the pressure of migraines and headaches. Citronella oil blends well with cedarwood, orange, geranium, lemon and bergamot.
Incognito Organic Java Citronella Oil is supplied in a 10ml bottle with a screw top and dispenser.
