Dilute at a percentage of 1% of the finished blend, typically 20 drops or 1ml of essential oil to 100ml of carrier oil. Do not use undiluted on the skin. You can use up to 2% dilution for use on your body or in the bath.

DIY Insect Repellent Spray

Add 10 drops of Citronella, 10 drops of Peppermint #107 and 100ml of Witch Hazel #702 to a spray bottle to make your own simple bug repellent spray. Don’t forget to shake before use.


Diluted with a carrier oil, Citronella can be blended with your favourite essential oils to make your own massage oil blend. We recommend Sweet Almond (#215), Grapeseed (#210) or Coconut Oil (#203).


Use in you diffuser to enjoy the refreshing scent of Citronella. For a bug banishing diffuser blend add 3 drops of Citronella, 3 drops of Tea Tree #109 and 2 drops of Lavender #102.


Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner or make your own hair care blend.

As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.
