Dive into the multifaceted world of Citronella essential oil with Edens Garden. While you might associate Citronella primarily with keeping pesky bugs at bay during your camping trips, this oil offers so much more when it comes to aromatherapy benefits.

Commonly found in soaps, detergents, and cleaning products, Citronella is a household name for a good reason. But did you know that this oil also boasts an incredibly calming aroma? Imagine the soothing scent of Citronella filling your space, creating an ambiance of tranquility that you'll love coming home to.

Sourced from the vibrant island of Java in Indonesia, Citronella essential oil originates from a perennial and aromatic grass native to Sri Lanka and cultivated across many tropical regions. The extraction process involves steam distillation, resulting in an oil that serves as the starting material for isolating natural compounds like geraniol and citronellal.

So, how can you integrate Citronella essential oil into your daily routine? It's easy! Add a few drops to your diffuser for a serene atmosphere, use it in your DIY soap recipes for a refreshing twist, or mix it with a carrier oil for a soothing massage. Remember to perform a patch test before topical use. Once you've experienced the calming effects of Citronella essential oil, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!
