Citronella Fragrance Oil
Choose a Variant

Enhance your patio ambiance with citronella fragrance oil. A top note of lemon peel adds a boost of citrus to the lemongrass heart. This camphorous scent performs well in soy wax, resulting in strong citronella candles that enhance outdoor days. One of our favorite scents for outdoor use, citronella candles are great for picnics, campsites, and backyard barbecues. This green and herbal scent is both refreshing and functional.

Expand your product line with candles, melts, and tarts. Or, add a splash of the outdoor nostalgia to lotions, soaps, and scrubs.

We did not experience any acceleration or separation. This was very slow to come to a light trace and was very easy to work with. After 24 hours, there was no sign of discoloration or of the soap going through a gel phase. The scent was very strong. After 30 days, there is no discoloration and the scent remains very strong. This would be an ideal fragrance to do more complex swirls or design techniques that require a slow trace.
