C. nardus is a tall perennial grass native to Sri Lanka. It grows to about 3 feet in height and can live up to 15 years, due to an extensive root system. During regular cultivation, the plants normally replaced after 5 years. Harvesting will begin five to six months after the plants begin to grow. The plant is normally harvested in the early hours of the morning and finishing by noon. During the harvesting and cutting of the leaves, a plant stock remains to regenerate for the months ahead. The leaves are then left to wither for 24hrs before the steam distillation takes place. Citronella Essential Oil is yellow to brownish yellow in color. It has a powerful, fresh, lemony scent.
