It is renowned for having excellent neutralising and cleansing properties and its refreshing scent makes a great natural room freshener (try adding 15-20 drops to 100ml of distilled water and pour into an atomiser bottle). 

When vaporised, its zesty scent can help give you that added lift when you're feeling tired and fatigued.

To diffuse in a traditional burner, simply fill dish with water and add a few drops of oil on top before lighting the candle. For electrical fragrancers, follow instructions given by the manual. For massage: dilute in a carrier oil and gently massage over the skin. Add a few drops to a handkerchief or inhale directly from the bottle if you are on the go. Dilute in distilled water and pour into spray bottle for an all-natural room fragrancer.
Citronella blends beautifully with many other oils, but particularly well with Lavender, Clary Sage, Geranium and Lemon.   
The plant is native to Sri Lanka but grows well in any warm and temperate climate. China has become a major grower and distiller of Citronella.
A great one to use in soap making due to its fresh, natural cleansing properties. Add a few drops to a diffuser to fill the air with its fresh and fruity aromas; great for helping combat foul odours. Dilute to a maximum of 1% in a carrier oil and use in massage to help soothe aches and pains. Add a few drops to your shampoo to help promote shine and manageability of the hair.

Traditionally used as an insect and cat repellent and skin conditioner.

Dilute in a carrier oil before skin application. Keep away from children and out of eyes. Do not take internally or apply undiluted to the skin. For further advice on using essential oils to treat medical conditions, we recommend you seek advice from a professional.

I have used this oil to keep my cats away from plant tubs and it also features in some preparations sold in garden shops for the same purpose It does need to be reapplied every few days but will effectively keep animals away from small areas of soil
