Uses
citronella is used primarily as a fragrance (perfuming and masking), it also has tonic properties. It is derived from the essential oil of the Cymbopogon nardus plant, and its constituents include geraniol (approximately 60 percent), citronellal, camphene, limonene, linalool, and borneol.
Uses
Citronellal is a flavoring agent that is a liquid, faintly yellow with an intense odor resembling lemon, citronella, and rose. it is soluble in alcohol and most fixed oils, slightly soluble in mineral oil and pro- pylene glycol, and insoluble in water and glycerin. it is obtained by chemical synthesis; the aldehyde may be obtained from natural oils, such as citronella oil. it is also termed 3,7-dimethyl-6-octen-1-a1.
