Citronella Essential Oil Java CAS 8000-29-1

The odor of Java-type citronella oil is fresh and sweet, revealing the high content of citronellal and geraniol + citronellol. The oil does not present at all in its odor the camphene-borneol notes characteristic of the Ceylon citronella oil. The dryout of the Java-type oil is also sweet, but somewhat woody; this is probably due to the sesquiterpenes and sesquiterpene alcohols (Elemol, etc.).
