Recommended for: repelling insects and deodorizing the home
Rich and lemony with subtle wood tones, citronella oil's lingering fragrance masks scents that attract insects, without being toxic to humans and pets.
This uplifting scent is an excellent deodorizer for closets and kitchen cabinets and can help keep storage spaces insect-free.

Soothing Head Massage
Gently rub a few drops of Citronella Oil between your fingers to warm the oil. Place your fingertips on your temples and slowly massage, starting from the ends of your eyebrows, circling up towards your hairline, and back down again. After massaging, spread the remaining oil on your palms, cup over your mouth and nose, and breath in the relieving scent.
