Citronella is a South Asian grass from which the essential oil of Citronella is obtained. It is a "clumping grass" which grows to a height of about five to six feet that flourishes in direct sunlight. This fresh, lemony scented grass is probably most well known and used as a natural insect repellent, used in candles, soaps and aromatherapy oils. Citronella is also powerfully antibacterial and antiseptic and can be mixed with water to create a natural room freshener or chemical free cleaning products.
