Make a blend to repel insects by combining 4 drops citronella, 2 drops eucalyptus,
and 2 drops lemongrass essential oils.
I find this citronella smells like the Lemon essential oil. And that the lemon and eucalyptus oil smells a lot stronger then this one. They all smell great; the lemon and citronella , But I find the smell is not as potent as the lemon and Eucalyptus mix from woolzies
I live in the south, so you know combatting mosquitoes is serious. I made a lotion bar with this and we discovered that even without applying it, there is a measure of protection. You can literally just place it close to you and have a mosquito-free bubble.
Love the Scent! At first, it was overpowering but that was because I added to much for my Diffuser great value for the price!
