My delivery arrived well packaged and intact and on breaking the bottle's seal, the citronella oil smelled just like any of the other and often more expensive preparations I've used.

I've used it directly on my skin (diluted as directed) and escaped the usual inevitable feasting by mosquitoes and other flying, biting insects on hot, humid summer days. Today, instead of wearing it on my skin, I daubed spots onto my clothing and headed to our woodland stream which always attracts masses of mozzies swarming just above the surface which generally make a bee-line for me. Instead, I am delighted to report my first ever trip without feeling those tell-tale nips on my face. Instead, unlike previous visits, they seemed to keep a good distance from me.

I also use this with my rabbits in their 40' open-ended garden enclosure in preference to more toxic fly killer products. Having a south-facing garden backing onto a river, the rabbits attract a lot of flies which even two industrial zapper units cannot fully control. As an additional fly control measure, I added a few drops of this citronella oil onto damp rags suspended from the roof and within 20-30 minutes there was a noticeable drop in the number of flies. Bluebottles didn't seem too repelled by the citronella but the mozzies and other nippers seemed to have headed off.

So - on my skin, on my clothing and in the garden, this citronella oil appears to work very effectively (and safely). It offers very good value for money and I'll be ordering more when I've depleted this bottle - but even with relatively heavy usage, I'm expecting it to last about a year. Excellent value!

Excellent fly repellant - superb value. I make it into fly repellant for horses with cold tea and sometimes add vinegar. Just as good and much cheaper than commercially prepared ones, and because it's cheaper I can use it more liberally.

We bought the citronella oil to make our own fly repellent spray for my daughter's horse as it is cheaper to make your own than buy the ready mixed. It works wonders and we would recommend this product to anyone experiencing the same 'sweet-itch' problems with their horse or pony, however the vet has recommended that February is the ideal time to start to use it rather than early Spring.

I've given this a five because it's not the seller's fault I hate the smell! It's very over powering even using a small amount. Having said that I'm going to start just using a few drops in a bucket when I wash my floors in a bid to keep fleas away. I've had an infestation due to my cats and I was diluting this with a carrier oil and rubbing it on my legs at night to try and stop them attacking me. It seemed to work a bit. Anyway, the product is exactly what it claimed to be and it arrived in good time so I have no complaints about the seller.

Reasonably priced and very fast delivery keeps the flies of our horses. We mix it with vinegar and water and spray it on them.

I used this to stop cats and dogs going poo on my grass. It seems to have done the trick. The thing is I have to make sure I put it all over the grass because they 'go' on the part around the edge of where I sprinkled it. Also I have put it on the hems of my trousers to deter the insects or any fleas from animals biting my legs. I think it is good. I like the smell but it made me dizzy and feeling a bit weird. I would recommend it though. Yes I like it. Thank you.
