Citronella Oil Java Type

The bulk of the traded citronella (leaf/ grass) oil, cymbopogon winterianus, also known as javatype, is distilled in Indonesia, China and Vietnam. The Sri Lankan oil differs in its composition and is traded in much smaller volumes. The grass needs to be dried before distillation otherwise the composition and yield is affected, hence production is low during the wet season.
