Most often associated with repelling insects, Citronella is so much more. Even the Environmental Protection Agency has classified it as “a biopesticide with a non-toxic mode of action”! You know you’re safe using it on even the youngest in your family. It has been studied and found to provide about two hours of repellency, also useful against ticks, even with livestock and pets. It’s effectiveness is comparable with the protection touted by DEET.
Helpful in treating and preventing colds, fever and headaches, Citronella has strong antiseptic properties, preventing the growth of bacteria. Infections of the colon, urethra, bladder, gastrointestinal tract, prostate and kidneys may be helped by the use of Citronella. It is generally recognized as safe by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since the major components are eliminated through urination. Often used in aromatherapy, it may help with anxiety relief and as a diluted rub for menstrual cramps and general muscle spasms.
