Citronella from Togo

 Essential Oil
Cymbopogon winterianus Jowitt

You’ve probably heard of citronella candles for insect repellent. What you may not realize is that the refreshing scent of Citronella essential oil can also help promote feelings of happiness.*

Our Citronella oil is extracted from the leaves and stems of Cymbopogon (lemongrass) grown in Togo.

Scent: The name Citronella comes from the French word meaning “lemon balm,” and oh so balmy it is. Citronella smells similar to lemongrass but with a sweeter, more uplifting, citrus aroma.

Suggested Use: When you need a little pick-me-up, try adding a few drops of Citronella oil to your favorite diffuser to create an uplifting atmosphere.

One of the oldest perfume ingredients in the history of the world, frankincense was considered by ancient Egyptians to be a divine secretion—and to Roman and Greek civilizations, a symbol of power and abundance.

Our frankincense, also known as olibanum, comes from the resin of the Boswellia tree, native to Somalia.

Ylang ylang is a tree cherished by numerous cultures for its delicate, fragrant flowers and aphrodisiac properties. Our essential oil comes from the tree’s bright yellow, star-shaped flowers.
