We are taking this time to update our inventory. Shipping may be severely delayed. You will be asked before you checkout if you would prefer a substitution, partial refund for items not available, or a full refund if all items are not available. 
This should increase our processing and shipping time as we cannot correspond via email for all orders. 

As our inventory is updated and we are more confident that it is accurate, we will remove the question and shipping should resume to a normal schedule.

Citronella is a grass and has a history of medicinal use in India. Commercially it is found in insect repellents, candles, soaps, perfumes, detergents, and other household products. There is another citronella produced from Maha Pengiri citronella (C. winterianus) in Java, Vietnam, Africa, Argentina, Central America. It is used in soaps, perfumery, insect repellents, detergents and sanitary products. Since citronella essential oil is inexpensive, it is used to adulterate other essential oils such as melissa, verbena, and rose oil. Rose oil is imitated with lemongrass, geranium and citronella. Citronella is derived from mana grass native to Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka used to produce over 120 tons of citronella.
