USDA Certified Organic Oil
This oil is certified organic by the United States Department of Agriculture, ensuring that it was grown, distilled, and packaged in a natural, planet-friendly process free from pesticides and other harmful chemicals.
100% Pure Essential Oil
Why Purity Matters Essential Oils are sourced from all over the world, and not every source is created equal. Some producers add dilutants, fillers, other oils, or even chemicals to their oils before they ship them out. Though all Wholesale Botanics oils are safe to use as directed, this 100% pure oil is the most natural version of Essential Oil possible, free of any additional substances.
Safe & natural pesticide and bug repellant alternative

Organic Citronella Essential Oil, thanks to its high levels of citronellal and geraniol, is well-regarded for its natural pest-repelling properties. Its fresh, citrusy aroma makes it an ideal choice for creating an inhospitable environment for insects in outdoor and indoor spaces. Use it in diffusers or DIY sprays to enjoy a pleasant scent while helping to keep pests at bay.

Safe to use near kids and pets when properly diluted

Though Organic Citronella Essential Oil is gentle and safe to use around kids and pets, it is important to dilute the oil properly and use it in well-ventilated areas. Mix a few drops with water or a carrier oil before applying as a topical bugspray or diffusing to protect a larger area, and avoid direct contact with skin. Always monitor reactions and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.


Wholesale Botanics essential oils are carefully distilled and evaluated to ensure aromatic and therapeutic potency.
