Obtained from: Cymbopogon winterianus Jowitt (Java type), that consists of citronellal (32-45%), geraniol (11-13%), geranyl acetate (3-8%), limonene (1-4%).Candles are a great carrier for citronella oil. In fact, citronella oil is diffused via the bowl of melting wax, whose temperature never reaches the point that would make the active principles deteriorate and lose their properties. Citronella oil from Cymbopogon species should not be confused with other similar lemony oils from Corymbia citriodora and Pelargonium citrosum.
