Plant Therapy Citronella Essential Oil
Citronella is often used in soaps and candles because of its fresh scent. You can make your own underarm perspiration with Citronella. Combine equal parts of Citronella, Lemongrass and Cinnamon Leaf, add to water or witch hazel, and spray around the perimeter to make your outdoor gatherings more pleasant with this lemony citrus scent. Diffuse equal parts of Citronella and Cinnamon Leaf into the air.
For topical use, dilute to 1-3% in a carrier oil, gel, balm or other body care products and apply to skin when needed.
Add 1 drop of Citronella and 2 drops of Tea Tree to 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil or aloe vera gel to use on funky toenails that result from being barefoot in shared showers or swimming pool areas.
For aromatic use, diffuse 2-3 drops in 100mL or use in a personal inhaler.
