The Cymbopogon witerianus is a perennial plant native of tropical areas of Asia. The citronella essential oil is produced from the leaves of the cymbopogon winterianus jowitt, mainly grown in Java and China. The active chemical principles of citronella are the geraniol and citronellol; both considered antiseptics. For this reason the citronella essential oil is used primarily in soaps, as a mosquito repellent, in the production of insecticides, candles and also in aromatherapy.
