Cymbopogon nardus, common name citronella grass, is a perennial aromatic plant from the family Poaceae, originating in tropical Asia. (source: Wikipedia)
As is commonly known citronella is often used as a repellent, and we have the same use for this oil - we use it in our Insect Repellent. The great thing is, besides it working effectively as a repellent against bugs, it is also very beneficial for the skin. It has antifungal properties and it may have the potential to speed up the healing process of the skin.
