Our Citronella bars are made with citronella essential oil, a plant-based insect repellent which works by masking scents that are attractive to insects. Its ability to repel mosquitoes has been verified by research (click here for more info); for maximum effectiveness, it should be reapplied every 30-60 minutes.
In addition to insect-repelling properties, citronella is naturally antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. It stimulates blood circulation and is often used to tame oily skin and hair. It is also used in the treatment of migraines, fatigue, headaches, and nausea. However, it is important to note that Citronella oil is not recommended for use on the skin of small children or during pregnancy.
