Native to Sri Lanka, this lemon-scented grass is a close relative of Lemongrass and Palmarosa. It is extracted from a resilient grass native to Sri Lanka and Java. In traditional Sri Lankan medicine, crushed leaves were used to heal wounds.
Citronella's lovely, soothing scent has been appreciated throughout history, and it is once again becoming a product of choice for health-conscious customers.
Steamed- distilled from leaves, it has a well-rounded lemon citrus scent, though it is much softer than actual Lemon, and it has subtle woody notes.
