    Good quality
    Great quality citronella at a good price. I use it for mosquito repellants and works every time.
    smells great!
    This was great as a bug repellent. I will continue to use it year after year.
    bug-repelling spray
    Very strong! I am using this one for bug-repelling spray during the summer.
    Very strong!
    I use this EO with lavender EO, rosemary EO and a hint of patchouli to make a bug-repelling soap for the summertime. The citronella on its own in the bottle is strong enough to give me a headache, but in the blend in the soap it adds a sweet summery scent to the blend and definitely reminds me of campouts and summer BBQs. It's great to have a natural alternative to spray-on chemicals to deter bugs.
    I made a bug repellent soap!
    I used a combo of this citronella and camden grey cedar atlas and eucalyptus essential oils to make a wonderful camping bug repelling soap. I feel better using essential oils that are natural compared with chemicals like deet. Also works great for the dog! Thinking about making a spray with the same combo.
    Strong and distinct
    Very strong, distict astringent-like aroma, anyone who has ever smelled it will know it instantly. Works best with other strong scents, otherwise it will simply overpower them. I like it with Peppermint or Sweet Orange, also works good in Pine Tar CP Soap.
    Great scent!
    I make a natural 'bug off' blend that I put on the kids with this and it works great! I also use it in summertime soap to help keep the skeeters at bay! It even helps when put on a cotton ball and rubbed on the front door frame and screen to discourage mosquitoes from coming in with the kids!

EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail.

If we ever run out of amber glass bottles, we reserve the right to use any other glass bottle available at that time. The only sizes of EO's dispensed with orifice reducers are 1/32, 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 oz. sizes. If you require bottles/vials with orifice reducers or Eurodroppers, we sell those separately.
