Citronella cymbopogon nardus

Country of Origin: Sri LankaBotanical Name:  Cymbopogon Nardus

Many cultures value the medicinal use of the Citronella leaves for stimulation and insect repellents. It is fresh, powerful, lemony in scent and yellowish-brown in colour. It is also a refreshing and clarifying oil.

Citronella comes in two main types - Java and Ceylon. We have introduced an oil from Sri Lanka, which is the only source of the Ceylon type, produced from the Lenabatu variety of citronella grass. Java-type is produced in many countries other than Indonesia, in particular China.
