Piping Rock Citronella Essential Oil

Citronella is a hardy, aromatic perennial grass with long, narrow leaves and cane-like stems. It grows abundantly in Sri Lanka, Java, and Vietnam and thrives in tropical environments. This sweeping grass’s scent is popularly used to help keep insects away. Citronella has lemony overtones, but its fragrance layers evolve as they mingle with the air. Its deeper, earthy notes weave into the lighter ones, grounding and energizing in one unique blend.

History of Citronella

The graceful arches of this tropical grass release a faint but invigorating fragrance that is captured most potently in its essential oil. Its aroma is fresh and warming, delicately dancing between sweet citrus and earthy wood. In Traditional Chinese health practices, citronella is valued for activating ‘yang’ qualities on both mental and physical levels. Yang is often associated with the sun, spring, summer, and the day – lending the receiver warmth, energy and strength. Citronella’s uplifting qualities will gently transport you as your mind opens, your senses heighten, and your body soaks in its complex fragrance harmonies.
