Top Benefits of Citronella Oil

Hey everybody it’s Yuli here from UpNature, and we specialize in premium essential oils. like Citronella Essential Oil.

Citronella Oil is such an amazing oil and I want to talk specifically about one of the best benefits Citronella Essential Oil has and basically it’s a very natural insect repellent. Citronella Oil will repel mosquitoes, insects and bugs. Personally, I found out about Citronella Oil about one year ago. I was living in Thailand where mosquitoes is a very serious issue and carry dengue and other serious diseases. So it’s very important to ensure that mosquitoes won’t bite you, and to do it in the best and most natural way. I remember I was sitting in a restaurant and the mosquitoes were attacking and me, then someone handed me a spray and all of a sudden the mosquitoes went away. I was able to peacefully eat the meal after using it! Later on I looked at the ingredients and it was just water mixed with citronella essential oil. That’s how I personally found out how powerful citronella essential oil is against mosquitoes. It just works. You can enjoy similar benefits if you have mosquitoes and insects in your home, or if you’re travelling .

The International Journal of  Advanced Research have actually made a few studies about Citronella and found that by using this essential oil you can two hours of effectiveness against mosquitoes. I read a few other studies which show generally one hour, so it’s something you want to apply every hour or half hour depending on where you are and how strong the oil is. Citronella has been registered in the US as a plant based insect repellent and it has been like this since 1948 so it’s nothing new, it’s been used in may mosquito sprayed. But the problem is many of them add many more chemicals that are not needed. All you need is the essential oil to.

How to actually use it? You can use it as a spray. Take a spray bottle, put some Citronella essential oil in it, mix with water and spray it on yourself, your skin, your room, around you. This is one way to use it. Another way to use it is directly on the skin. Just take a few drops of citronella essential oil, mix it with a carrier oil such as coconut, neem, moringa or olive oil, and use it as a lotion on your skin. So if you’re travelling or at home, just put a bit on your skin, make sure it’s properly diluted, and this will be a formula to repel all the mosquitoes and insects. Then as I said before, just reapply every one to two hours if you have lots of mosquitoes around you.
