Citronella - Our best ally in summer
Citronella is a most valuable plant in perfumery and aromatherapy.
This is because there are multiple uses for Citronella thanks to its intense citrus and aromatic smell.
As for the benefits of Citronella, these range from its antiseptic to antifungal properties.
To all its virtues, it is worth adding its natural 'repellent' action, a factor that makes this aroma one of the summer favorites.
HOW DOES CITRONELLA AFFECT MOSQUITOES?
Despite the multitude of inventions used to get rid of mosquitoes and their bites, Citronella is a plant that has been used since time immemorial to scare away different flying insects, including mosquitoes.
The Greeks and Romans already used aromatic plants to repel mosquitoes, which is why Citronella is one of the most used natural remedies on the market.
Unlike others, Citronella does not kill the mosquito, but its action is much simpler and more effective; Thanks to its intense smell, it masks any odor that may be attractive to mosquitoes and, in this way, makes the mosquito move away and lose interest in everything that is in that location.
With the arrival of heat and the approach of summer, mosquito infestations are getting closer and closer.
For this reason, it is essential to provide yourself with Citronella aroma in any of its variants, since this plant, in addition to mosquitoes, also scares away other insects,
