The Story

Name: Cymbopogon nardus (L.)

Why Citronella? Known for its traditional use as an insect repellent, citronella essential oil is also used in soap making and cleaning products. It has a soft and citrusy aroma—perfect for mixing into candles, aerosols, or perfumes for sweet summer nights.

Quality Assured: Our citronella essential oil is responsibly sourced from Java, Ceylon. The essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and stems. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for use and entirely free of adulterants.
