Organic citronella oil is steam distilled from Cymbopogon winterianus grass, or Java citronella, and used more often in perfume than other citronella species. Citronella essential oil is a green and fruity top note that blends well with cedarwood, geranium, sandalwood, and citrus essential oils.
Cymbopogon winterianus or Java citronella has a higher geraniol and citronellol content then Cymbopogon nardus or Sri Lanka citronella. Because of these constituents Java citronella is used more in perfumery.
Blends Well With Bergamot, cedarwood, citrus oils, geranium, pine, and sandalwood
