If you are a big fan of aromatherapy and have never used citronella essential oil, you’re missing out. While not as popular as it perhaps should be, once you start realizing the benefits, you’ll find yourself wondering why you haven’t discovered this oil before.
This potent oil can help with everything fevers, headaches, and colds, to reducing arthritis pains and inflammation.
While mosquitos are completely repelled by this scent, the citronella fragrance helps humans calm our thoughts and promotes mental alertness.
Uses and benefits
- Calms both yourself and your barking pup down due to its anti-aggressive elements.
- Acts as an antiseptic when applied to wounds for faster healing
- Helps prevent scars
- Quickly provides relief from menstrual cramps and muscle strains
How to use
Make an artificial mosquitoes repellent by mixing this essential oil with water and keeping it by you while outdoors, or to spray around open windows and doorways in your home.
Dilute a small amount with coconut oil, or any other pure carrier oil, onto a cotton ball or handkerchief and inhale. This will work to rebalance your senses and promotes calmness.
Do not apply it directly to your skin. Because citronella can be a potent citrus oil, it is recommended to dilute and test to see if you have reaction before topical application.
