Used it to make home made bug spray! 75 drops citronella, 20 drops of Rose Geranium, 20 drops of tea tree oil, One Tablespoon of white Vinegar. Put ingredients in a 4 ounce spray bottle then top off with Quality water and shake well initially and prior to every use. I live in northern Minnesota and the mosquitos and ticks are real heavy in the summer, this worked extremely well. Citronella repels mosquitos, Rose Geranium repels ticks. Re- apply as needed. I have never seen a tick run in the other direction except for when I sprayed this on one! Make sure all your ingredients are Organic or wild crafted. Standard bug sprays with those TOXIC CHEMICALS such as Deet have been proven to cause brain cancer and other diseases. Go all naturel folks!

I bought this to add to my aromatherapy collection. I love that I now do not have to purchase bug repellent products that cost a lot and contains who-knows-what. I'm all about all-natural remedies for health and beauty. This organic citronella essential oil is wonderful. It has a nice strong citronella scent. I live in Florida, and with the Zika Virus all over the news I want to make sure I have mosquito repellent on hand. You can use this essential oil in so many way!
* Put in air diffuser to disperse citronella scent in the air (like a candle)
* Combine with fractionated coconut oil to make a citronella scented body oil before going outdoors
* Put in your lotion to add citronella scent to body lotion
* Add drops to your aromatherapy necklace to keep the smell of citronella mobile with you
* Use to make your own home candles
Those are just some ideas, but I'm sure you could look on Pinterest to find more. I am happy with this purchase. I love Plant Therapy Essential Oils and will definitely be shopping with them in the future for me essential oil needs. Check their website, they have free shipping (if you're not a Prime member, this is great) and have deals going on ALL the time!

Really works mixed with water and a little lemongrass oil to deter unwanted bugs inside your home. I feel safe knowing I am not breathing in noxious harmful fumes inside my home when I use this. It has a very strong smell for a day or two but its not that bad. Better than breathing in Raid or Home defense sprays, so if you have kiddos and pets this is a great option to use inside.

Purchased this oil to make a homeade bug spray for camping. So far, so good!

The homemade spray I like is:
(In an 8oz spray bottle)
4 oz water
3 oz witch hazel
30 drops of oil

There are a lot of variations online; find the one that works best for you!

My wife bought this item last summer.
She was looking for something natural to repulse Mosquitos while we go hiking.

I have been using citronella candles since I am a child, but never citronella oil. My mother would light a candle on to repulse Mosquitos while having dinner outside or after a barbecue. This wouldn't prevent us to get a bite, though! (The amount of oil in those candles wold be too small to actually repel bugs...).

Mosquitos and some other bugs are mostly attracted by the carbon dioxide released while we breathe. There is nothing magic behind the Citronella. It "repels" bugs by masking our scents.

We could use something different from Citronella. Citronella is extracted from various species of lemongrass. We just like the smell of it.

Obviously, it’s not easy to have a candle while hiking. We also need something resisting a minimum to the wind and water/sweat for optimal protection.

Due to the high volatility of Citronella oil, it evaporates quickly off the skin; it has a short effect in time. It needs to be applied very often (we would apply it every 2 hours).
If you sweat or if it rains, or if it's windy, it evaporates even quicker.

I read the other comments that some people mix citronella oil with other substances to create a body oil to longer the effect (vanilla extracts, coconut oil, etc.). None of those worked for us.

We will probably give a try at a higher concentration citronella product such as bands or others.

I am opened to any tips if you have, I am a Citronella enthusiast because it's natural and reminds me of my childhood. This product is great for the price!

I love the Plant Therapy brands. I try to buy exclusively organic ingredients for body, skin, hair, and food and I've been very pleased with this one! I use the Citronella in my own blend of bug spray. It works very well and actually smells nice, in my opinion!

This product served my purpose well... I mixed it with other essential oils: Basil, Lemon, Eucalyptus, Peppermint and garlic oil, a couple of tablespoons of soap, and sprayed it around my garden to repel mosquitoes....natrual and safe! And, it works!

Item arrived on time and I was pleased to see a label on the top of the cap as well as around the bottle. Although it arrived and sat on my porch in the 90+ degree sun, the oil did not suffer in smell or consistency. I am pleased with the product.
