Abundant in East and Southeast Asia, and some parts of Africa, the Citronella plant is a grass species that has been long used as a natural mosquito and pest repellant. It is often misidentified as “Lemongrass” as these two look closely similar. The main difference you can look for, to correctly identify the citronella plant, is its reddish coloured pseudostems; the lemongrass’s colours are all green.
When crushed or pressed, the Citronella plant releases oil that can be extracted. This oil is what’s most popular among different Asian households as a mosquito repellent that’s applied topically. However, many are unaware of the other benefits your family can enjoy while using Citronella oil.
What is Tian Long Citronella Oil?
Many people are unaware of the benefits of Citronella Oil. It is recognized to be formulated to do more than just ward off mosquito bites, and is actually suitable for daily household use.
After an intensive research and development project, the 100% Natural Citronella Essential Oil was created. The product is free from harmful chemicals, which is why it is safe for babies, and gained popularity and public trust in Taiwan. Since 1995, it continues to help families to protect themselves from insects, provide a cleaner environment, and promote better well-being.
Ways to use Tian Long Citronella Oil
To protect yourself from pests and insects
As mentioned earlier, citronella oil is often used as a mosquito repellent when applied directly onto skin, either with a spray or a roll-on bottle. It can also repel other pests and insects as well. Using a spray, spread the Tian Long Citronella Oil in the desired area where you want to repel the insects most. You can also pour some on a Wood Bottle Gourd Shape Diffuser to diffuse its oil to prolong its effectiveness.
To eradicate fleas & ticks
Great news, Citronella oil is also pet-friendly. If you experience dealing with your pet’s undesirable smell or bad case of fleas and ticks, then you’ll be glad to know that Tian Long Citronella oil can help get rid of them. Just mix two or three sprays into your pet’s shampoo, and bathe them normally. A word of caution though, it’s not recommended for dogs below 1 year of age.
To deodorize rooms
Bad smell can give an unpleasant feeling for everyone in the household. Whether it’s because of pollution from outside, or pungent odours wafting through your home, Tian Long Citronella oil can help you deodorize your area. You can either spray the Citronella oil around the room, or place Citronella in the Wood Bottle Gourd Shape Diffuser around the house. The diffused oil can help prevent the growth of odour-causing bacteria in the air.
To clean floors and furniture
Citronella oil can be mixed with clean water to make another coating after mopping the floor with your usual cleaning agent. Simply add 1 to 2 caps of Tian Long Citronella Oil into the half-bucket of clean water, or spray it directly onto the mop and washcloth. When left to air dry, the results will be dry and non-sticky. Best results can be experienced when used weekly. If your cleaning agent does not have fragrance, you can immediately mix the essential oil to give it a nice aroma.
To relieve stress and anxiety
Aromatherapy has been used by many cultures for physical and psychological benefits. The scent from diffused Tian Long Citronella Oil is clean and invigorating. It can help jumpstart the minds, and induces alertness for hours.
Open the lid of the Wood Bottle Gourd Shape Diffuser, and fill it with the Tian Long Citronella Oil. If the fragrance becomes too strong, you can easily cover the hole with the lid. You can also use any type of diffuser available in your home, but if you don’t already have one, you can opt to use the Tian Long Rabbit Fragrance Lamp. Open the cap in a counterclockwise direction, move the sponge cap to the center, and add a few drops of the essential oil before closing the cap. After it’s been fully charged, it’s ready for use.
