Citronella

CitronellaCitronella essential oil is steam distilled from aerial parts and leaves.

Cymbopogan nardus

 

Historically, this plant has been used to help keep surface areas clean and to keep insects at bay along with many topical and aromatic uses.

Aromatic Benefits

An essential oil, when inhaled, can reach the emotional center of the brain within seconds. This is one of the incredible benefits of aromatherapy. Citronella essential oil is refreshing, uplifting, stimulating and equally calming.

Topical Benefits

Combined with a carrier oil, Citronella can be applied topically to help benefit the skin. It also makes a good companion in massage oil for an overall massage including the abdomen. Citronella is also know as a skin-penetrating enhancer when layering with other complimentary essential oil.

Applications

Citronella can be used both topically and aromatically by following the instructions on the label. Diffuse for an uplifting refreshing environment, or use topically to benefit the skin and muscles.

Companion Oils

Citronella pairs well with bergamot, cedarwood, geranium, lemon, orange, and pine.

With crunchy clusters mixed with chewy dried wolfberries, this granola is perfect to pack along with you no matter where you go!

All too often, cereals and on-the-go snacks are filled with refined sugars, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, and artificial flavors. Instead of including these overly processed ingredients, Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Granola is sweetened by the combination of wolfberries, cranberries, cacao nibs, and coconut sugar. These sweet hints are balanced by hearty sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, and pecans, with just the right amount of sea salt.

No matter where life takes you, you’ll be glad you brought Gary’s True Grit Einkorn Granola along for the ride!
