There are two general types of Citronella.  The Java & Ceylon yield different components and are grown in different locations.  The Ceylon is the C. Nardus variety. The Java, C. Winterianus variety is considered a ‘higher quality’ Essential oil.

In both cases the oil is steam distilled.  Savitur’s comes from India in a location Somah is familiar with.

It’s scent is connected to ‘insect repellent’ however it’s shown benefit to relieve spasms and used as a strong anti-bacterial in cleaning.   Citronella is used IN BLENDS to remove tapeworms in children, when administered by a licensed ND or Ayurvedic Physician.

“Never go camping without Citronella”
– Dr. Bryan Miller (Ayurveda & Essential Oils)

In addition to being an EPIC outdoor oil to deter bugs, Citronella is a wonder when added to pet shampoo to halt and prevent fleas.  Your dog will thank you!
