Citronella: A fresh aroma that keeps pests away
As you may have guessed from the ‘citron’ in its name, citronella is a citrusy oil derived from Citronella grass, which has a sweet, lemony flavor and aroma.
Citronella grass, and its cousin Lemongrass, both yield a wonderfully pungent and sweet oil that insects, particularly mosquitos, find abhorrent.
Too bad for them, as citronella oil is a delightful aroma and flavor for almost everyone else…
- Citronella oil is a popular ingredient in many perfumes and fragrances, and is often used in soaps, fragrant candles and potpourris.
- Because of its refreshing and invigorating lemon aroma, citronella oil is a common ingredient in many natural cleaning products.
