Extraction Method: Steam Distillation Plant Origin: Grass Aroma:Sweet, Grassy, Lemony Country of Origin: Indonesia
A B O U T
The fragrant grass known as Cymbopogon winterianus is steam distilled to produce citronella essential oil, which has a scent similar to lemongrass but is slightly sweeter. Used widely in the making of candles, perfumes, and soaps. Citronella Oil enhances skin tone and gives it a healthy glow. It improves the skin's ability to absorb moisture while also balancing your skin's oil production. As a bonus, it reduces the appearance of pores and softens and smoothes the skin. Scars, marks, and flaws become less noticeable. Citronella should never be used topically without first being mixed with a carrier oil, such as Argan or Jojoba oil. Hair and the scalp are cleaner and less dry, harsh, and knotted after using it. Frizzy, unruly hair might benefit from its ability to tame frizz and make it easier to maintain. It's useful for both halting further hair loss and stimulating new growth. Just a few drops added to your regular shampoo will give you all the benefits.
