The latest addition to The Maeva Store- Citronella candles have raised some eyebrows. It almost sounds gimmicky, candles which can ward off mosquitoes?
The truth is that citronella has a rich historical usage with it being used thousands of years ago in Sri Lanka, Indonesia and China to lower inflammation, fight infection, relieve pain and more. Maeva candles use citronella essential oil, a more potent form than the plant which is extracted by steam distilling the leaves and stems of two varieties of the Asian grass plant citronella, Cymbopogon nardus and Cymbopogon Winterianus. Citronella is also a distant relative of Lemongrass, hence the slight citrusy scent.
Today citronella is used in the form of essential oils for aromatherapy or topical use, in sprays, a component of candles, lotions and even cosmetic products.
Citronella essential oil is one of the most common aromatherapy oils and is part of what gives many household sprays and candles their signature scent. Here are some accepted uses of this miracle plant:
Inhibits Bacterial Growth
Before the advent of modern medicine, the plant was used to curb bacterial growth, treat infectious wounds as it has components of methyl isoeugenol which are responsible for this property.
A common aromatherapy ingredient, the fresh citrusy scent is said to fight depression and help alleviate feelings of anxiety, sadness, and negativity. It is also used in diffusers at night in many countries as it encourages sleep.
Great For The Skin
Because citronella essential oil has antibacterial properties, it is extremely effective against acne-causing bacteria when applied topically. It is very good at reducing sebum buildup and drying down oily skin when used in a combination with witch hazel, tea tree and other oils in small quantities.
Removes Bad Odours
It's not difficult to see why this essential oil is a staple of many deodorants, body sprays and air fresheners! The crisp, rich lemon-like aroma of this oil is universally liked and it's power to replace bad odours makes it a favourite among fragrance lovers everywhere. An added advantage is that citronella is completely natural and free from harmful chemicals found in mainstream deodorants, such as parabens, aluminum, and propylene glycol.
One of the most famed used of the citronella plant is its ability to keep away insects and mosquitoes. They masks scents that mosquitoes are attracted to such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid thus warding off mosquitoes when diffused or lit in citronella-infused candles.
We at Maeva knew we had to incorporate citronella into our collection thus we infused reusable clay pots with potent citronella essential oil plus a quirky dust-cover on top! Our motive was to create something with incredible utility but also an attractive visual appeal, so head over to our collection and do give us feedback on our attempt.
