Bright, crisp citronella is lemony, woodsy, and sweet all at once. Best known for its powerful pest-repellent benefits, it also shines when used for skincare. Citronella’s incredibly calming aroma is known to promote feelings of happiness and positivity.

Our organically-grown Citronella Essential Oil is steam-distilled from wild citronella java grass leaves in Indonesia. We began working with this young farm, which only started producing essential oils in 2018, as their first international partner. While they are definitely a small, family-run outfit with only three employees, the quality of their oils is truly outstanding. Just take a look at their GCMS reports!

Although they are currently still undergoing application for their certification, their farm is run as if it were certified organic. They prioritise sustainability by reusing plant waste from the distillation process as fertiliser for their crops and animal feed for the surrounding farms. They also collect rainwater for irrigation.


My Pure Earth’s Citronella Essential Oil is 100% pure. And then some.

Fun Fact! Did you know…

1.) Inhaling essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, and therefore the central nervous system. (What a great way to calm down!)
