Aroma

Light amber oil, uplifting and energising, it imbues a strong refreshing, yet earthy, citrus aroma. It’s like stepping under an invigorating waterfall on a hot summers day.

Originally from India and Sri Lanka it has been used in Ayuvedic medicine for many centuries, as food flavouring and in perfumes and skin care. The main active botanical is citral, currently used in both the perfumery and pharmaceutical industries. Considered an effective insect repellent some studies indicate that C. citratus oil protects against malaria carrying mosquitoes for up to eleven hours and was considered comparable to common chemical sprays.
