Diluted with a carrier oil, Organic Citronella can be blended with your favourite essential oils to make your own massage oil blend. We recommend Sweet Almond #215, Grapeseed #210 or Coconut Oil #203.

I think was expecting a fresher fragrance, closer to that of lemon but this is a bit heavier. I guess it's down to expectations rather than the quality of the product. I will probably use this for insect repelling products in the summer
Without hesitation, fantastic quality oils I highly recommend.
I love it. Is stong smel.Is work perfect.
I am using citronella as an ingredient for natural bug repellent in Costa Rica. The bottle size is perfect for a month long trip for a family of 4. It is great to be chemical free!
