Citronella Rollerball Blends

Citronella is commonly known as an insect repellant, which is great at this time of the year in Australia.  I love having options, and playing with blends so that we don’t ‘smell like insect repellant’ but rather smell like a divine pure-fume (aka perfume).

But, did you know that citronella is much more than that?

Its supportive for skin issues from your feet to your whole body with it’s anti-fungal, bacterial, cleansing and astringent properties.  These properties also make it another essential oil option to add to your DIY cleaning products too.  But, my favourite use is to add it into my sleep routine, as like lavender and rosemary essential oils, it contains linalool to assist our bodies to feel relaxed.  However, for some people, lavender and rosemary essential oils can actually be stimulating, so if you have this reaction then you might like it to fight fatigue and try it during the day when your at home.  Alternatively, try blending it with other essential oils and just using a little bit.

For me, I find if I use it on it’s own I get very sleepy.  I guess you can say, it makes me feel very relaxed and I just can’t fight sleep.  I therefore choose to blend it, and use a small amount so I’m getting the benefits of the oil without a sleepy side effect.

Some of these blends contain citrus oils which are photosensitive, so please be sun safe.
