Citronella (Cymbopogon nardus)

Citronella is a distinctly, warm but fresh and grassy odour. Similar to Lemongrass, but stronger, and perhaps a little more polarising.

It can be used for minor skin conditions, but more extensively used for cleaning products and as a major constituent in insect repellants.

It is steam distilled from fresh or partly dried leaves.
