Sourcing Citronella: A Recognizable Scent with a Big Reputation
Citronella oil, with its distinct aroma and reputation for repelling insects, has long been a favorite in the world of aromatherapy and home fragrance.
But what's the story behind this remarkable essential oil?
One of the key reasons for citronella's recognition is its natural ability to ward off insects, especially mosquitoes. The oil's strong, lemony scent acts as a natural repellent, making it a popular choice for outdoor candles and sprays. People across the globe have embraced citronella as a pleasant-smelling option for keeping pesky bugs at bay, without resorting to harsh chemicals.
Consciously sourced for purity & quality:
When it comes to working with citronella oil, GoodLight has made an informed and conscious choice. By way of steam distillation, the essence of citronella is extracted from Cymbopogon nardus grown in Indonesia. The rendering process is the preferred method for preserving the purity and quality of the carefully cultivated plant.
Unlike many large-brand companies with products that contain synthetically manufactured citronella, we at GoodLight are proud to offer a transparent view into our sourcing process. With clean candles made with clean ingredients, we know our consumers are burning the best. So go ahead, host that garden BBQ party outside on the deck! Just make sure you light up a few citronella tea lights to help keep the bugs at bay.
Or, knock out your summer reading list in your favorite porch swing. GoodLight’s citronella travel tins create a pleasant ambiance, wafting that recognizable aroma so you can enjoy your book (without worrying about the bugs).
