Essence of the Week: Citronella...
Citronella is a certified organic grass from India that is part of a family of 50 different grasses. In French, her name means, "Lemon Balm". In 1948, the EPA registered Citronella as an insect repellent in the US.
Citronella is amazing for the skin, for acne, parasites, infections, and oily, excessively sweaty conditions. She is a stomach tonic that helps with septic conditions, internal parasites, and viruses. Citronella is wonderful for pain, arthritis, rheumatism, headaches, migraines, and neuralgia. She stimulates blood flow, enhances mental clarity, and fights fatigue. This amazing grass is a powerful diuretic that keeps bugs away and can fight the common cold, flu, and fever.
Spiritually speaking, Citronella is wonderful for depression and uplifting for the emotions. She works to lighten the being, clearing the way for one to find the joys on life once again. She is great for the root chakra and letting go of trauma, separation, and isolation. Work with Citronella to keep the emotional "bugs" away and to rise above lower frequencies.
