Description of Citronella Oil Ceylon
Steam-distilled from the green leaves of Lenabatu citronella grass, Citronella Oil Ceylon is a product native to the Ceylon region. Often referred to as "Managrass Oil," this fragrant extract has a yellow or brown-yellow color and retains a distinctive warm and woody odor, with a fresh and grassy nuance. This makes Ceylon Citronella Oil particularly popular among soaps and low-cost perfumes, as the effective masking power of the oil's aroma can easily shield against less pleasant scents. Citronella Oil Ceylon is also a natural mosquito repellent, making it a staple product of insecticides and other bug repellents.
