Citronella Essential Oil (Ceylon)

Extraction Method: Conventional (Non GMO), Cold Pressed

Country of Origin: Sri Lanka




Citronella Oil is extracted from a resilient grass (Cymbopogon nardus) native to Sri Lanka and Java. It is a very aromatic perennial that grows approximately 1 meter (3 feet) in height.

Citronella essential oil was traditionally used to prevent food spoilage due to fungus and bacteria. The citronella plant belongs to the same family as lemongrass and palmarosa grasses.

What is the Spiritual and Emotional Influence? Citronella essential oil helps to release the energy of punishment and distrust that creates anger, frustration and separation from self and source. It helps to calm the emotional and mental bodies so that one can resolve the inner reasons for the conflict.

This oil instills trust and connection to source which helps us embrace and accept ourself and all of life’s rewards. It asks us to evaluate the things that “bug us” or irritate us on a deeper level. Once we do, we may find those pesky annoyances are exactly the things we need to be more accepting of in others so we can accept ourselves.
