CITRONELLA is an important plant in Chinese and Indonesian traditional medicine and can treat a wide range of diseases. Citronella has a very refreshing aroma, which makes it very pleasant to use. You can use the essential oil in aromatherapy, body care or because of its spiritual properties. Citronella is a herbaceous plant that contains the healing substance as an essential oil. Citronella is slightly reminiscent of lemon and lemongrass. Very pleasant aroma and uplifting.

La Tene Citronella essential oil is obtained by evaporation. The oil comes from the dried leaves of the citronella plant. It is a 100% essential oil. Use Citronella essential oil mixed with a carrier oil in body care, bathwater, drip it on a towel for inhalation, or in an oil lamp/diffuser for aromatherapy. 

Essential oils are very good tools for physical healing and accelerating spiritual growth. No matter what essential oil you use, it has magic. In exactly the same way, the essential oil of Citronella has this magical power. Citronella essential oil is one of the most multi-functional essential oils you could have. It can be used in so many different ways that it can solve many common problems on both a physical and spiritual level. Citronella essential oil could be in your home for every ten occasions.


Citronella essential oil increases courage, self-confidence and willpower. If you use this essential oil in body care or in an oil lamp/diffuser you use it, it affects your self-esteem very well. It helps you see yourself in a good light and blocks any self-deprecating attitude.

It is a plant that can take you to places where you want to travel in your past during meditation. Citronella is good for use in past healing therapies where you need to go through a moment in your mind that was unclear or traumatic to you. This is to replace your thoughts, attitudes and feelings with better emotions. Citronella is very good for use in hypnosis therapy.

If you want to be motivated, burn Citronella and you will get the energy you lack. It guides you to action, giving you life energy and a positive boost.

For example, Citronella is a good cleanser and activator for Citrine, Carnelian, Tiger’s Eye and other prosperity crystals. 


With weight-loss effect

Citronella essential oil helps reduce appetite. If you can't control your appetite, you constantly feel that you need something to chew, and you can't say no to your favourite foods when you've already eaten too much, then Citronella essential oil will help you. Burn this essential oil at home just before eating. This will help reduce the need to eat more than your body actually needs.

In addition to the use of Citronella essential oil, I recommend consuming  Psyllium Husk as a dietary supplement for weight loss. It is an Ayurvedic herb that helps to break down fats and reduce food cravings.

Respiratory healer

The use of citronella essential oil is beneficial all year round. It helps to kill certain types of bacteria that cause lung and respiratory diseases. Useful for colds, helping to speed up healing and prevent complications.

If you become ill, drip citronella essential oil into a towel and keep it close to you to inhale its aromas. Use it in an oil lamp/diffuser or apply it to your skin with a carrier oil.

Citronella boosts immunity and helps you stay healthy. If you have young children at home, burn this essential oil in an oil lamp/diffuser for the same purpose.

This oil works for about 48 hours, so in case of illness, it is necessary to use it daily or for more than one day for the effect to be good.

Insect repellent

Citronella scares away insects, especially flying insects such as mosquitoes. Use Citronella when it is already warm outside and you want to keep insects away from your home or terrace. If you want to spend time outdoors, for example in the evening with light, Citronella will help keep insects away from the light. For example, place on your terrace an oil lamp, pour water in and drip up to 30 drops of essential oil. You can also drip oil on the blankets to keep insects away.

Heals wounds

Citronella essential oil accelerates wound healing and you can apply it to your skin mixed with a carrier oil. Mix a total of 1 teaspoon of carrier oil (preferably jojoba) with 1 drop of essential oil, later, after a few days with 2 drops of essential oil. Citronella essential oil helps to heal wounds and protect them from scarring, just as jojoba carrier oil can.

Brainstorming, thinking and learning

Citronella helps focus and improves brain function. When you work, Citronella improves the quality of your work. The same goes for learning – it simplifies thinking and prevents you from getting tired.

If you work in a home office, you will have a good opportunity to use Citronella essential oil, and you can also use it in the nursery to help the child. Of course, if this essential oil’s aroma suits. It smells pretty good and most likely suits many.

A healer of stress, depression and bad mood

It is an excellent plant that can fight depression and stress. These two are one of the biggest pathogens for humans on our planet today. Citronella has a mood-boosting effect, it improves mood, helps to relax, creates a feeling of well-being and helps to enjoy living in an instant. Try to use citronella regularly to get the most out of it.

Use citronella essential oil for body care and in an oil lamp/diffuser for aromatherapy. Keep a bottle of Citronella essential oil in your pocket when you leave home. If you feel moody or sad, unscrew the cap and smell a little of this essential oil. It calms you down and helps you feel good right away.

In addition to Citronella essential oil, Ayurvedic herbs Ashwagandha and Bacopa Monnieri help to fight stress and depression. These are Ayurvedic antidepressants.

Deep relaxation

If you want a really good relaxing effect with Citronella, burn it with Rosemary and Lavender. The combined effect of these three plants is strong and gives you the opportunity to relax deeply. If you spend quality time at home, burn them together and let yourself be completely satisfied. If you are doing healing therapy with yourself or someone else, also burn these three plants together.

When used together, these three essential oils form a great aroma and already have a very soothing effect. Try it!

Essential oil for lice

Lice are parasites that no one probably wants to see in their heads. Nevertheless, lice are on the move and especially among children. Lice can be freed with Citronella essential oil. Massage three 3 tablespoons of carrier oil (recommendable jojoba) with three drops of essential oil on the scalp. Increase the amounts if the hair is thick. Let the mixture of oils stay on the scalp for at least 20 minutes (if you feel tingling, wash the oil out of your hair immediately. Do not get the essential oil in your eyes!). After that, comb the lice out of your head or pull the nits off your hair with your fingers. Wash your head thoroughly afterwards and repeat the procedure if necessary.

Refreshes the scent of home

With citronella, it is possible to quickly achieve a good aroma at home and get rid of stagnant air, which may be due to the rooms not being ventilated for a long time. For example, if you go to your own country house where you haven't been for a long time, there may be a bad smell. By ventilating the rooms and burning Citronella, you can refresh your life and restore the good aroma of the household. Burn citronella essential oil if you want to make your home smell pleasant for guests, for example.

Abdominal problems

Citronella helps relieve abdominal pain and reduce flatulence. Apply 1 tablespoon of carrier oil with 6 drops of essential oil to your stomach. Apply the oil mixture well into the skin, on the sides and, if there is any oil left, on the back. Lie down for half an hour and let the oils heal. Abdominal pain should go away quickly when it comes to flatulence. An ayurvedic herb that also helps to prevent and treat digestive problems is Psyllium Husk.


Citronella essential oil can be burned in an oil lamp. Instructions for using the lamp can be found on our website. All the oil lamps in our e-shop selection can be found HERE, which contain the information needed on how to use it.

Another option is to apply the essential oil on your skin, but in this case, the essential oil must be mixed with another oil (not with essential oil but carrier oil), such as olive, coconut, almond or jojoba oil. Essential oils can be scorching on the skin and therefore should be applied to the body with another oil. When mixing essential oils with other oils, use just a few drops in the other. The oil lamp poured oil mixed with water as much as the strong aroma you want in the room.

Make yourself a healing bath with Citronella essential oil. If you have a bath at home, fill the bath full of water and drip ten drops of essential oil into the bath. Take a bath and enjoy the effect of Citronella essential oil. Such a bath is useful both physically and spiritually. Take this healing bath for Citronella’s healing effects to reach your body.

Mix Citronella essential oil with your favourite cream to apply to the skin if you want the whole body to have a healing effect.


Citronella activates the third Chakra, creating vitality, positivity, good mood, sense of humour, the ability to enjoy the moment and be content. The solar plexus is responsible for these skills and emotions. Apply Citronella essential oil to your abdominal area with a carrier oil, to heal and activate your Solar Plexus Chakra. If you burn it in an oil lamp or diffuser, then, by inhaling this aroma, there is an indirect effect.
