HOW TO USE IT

Skin Care
It's a wonderful choice for foot creams and gels especially if you have problems with toe nails or irritated skin between the toes.
 
A good addition to deodorants as it is a strong bactericide.
 
Very good for sports massage in balms and creams used for treating muscular aches and pains.
 
Excellent in acne prone skin products but use in small amounts only because of the sensitive nature of acne prone skin.
 
Hair Care
It's useful to have in a travel or holiday hair and body wash as it is deodorising, refreshing and cleansing whilst also acting as an insect repellent.
Other
It is very cleansing and penetrating and makes a great massage oil to be included in a blend. It energises the mind especially when stressed and overworked.
 
Great as an insect repellant.
 
Cleanses and brightens the air in a room when diffused in an oil burner.
 
Cleanses the mind and makes the air feel fresher to breathe especially when combined with frankincense.
 
Suggested Blends
Blend with Patchouli and Cedarwood as an insect repellent as it contains more citronellal than Citronella oil does.
 
Combine with Ginger and Rosemary essential oils to use in products for pre and post gym workouts. It warms and relaxes the muscles.
