Description: There are two types of citronella commonly sold as essential oil.

It is yellowish-brown with a strong, tart, earthy and lemony scent.

Properties: Antidepressant, Anti-fungal, Antiviral, Insecticidal, Anti-inflammatory, Diuretic, Stomachic, Astringent, Antispasmodic, Stimulant, and Antiseptic.
