You went out with your cousin and someone pointed at you to say, you look similar, are you both the same? No! right? This sounds silly to you, right? Of course, yes! It feels so pesky to hear that if someone looks similar, they are the same. The same rules stir around lemongrass and citronella essential oil. They are cousins belonging to the grass family. Without leading to further confusion, let’s break them down on different pages:


Proud to say that India is the largest producer of lemongrass. Lemongrass is widely used for its magical and medicinal properties. The appearance and smell make it stand out from citronella. Lemongrass is all green, whereas citronella has red-coloured pseudostems. Experience yourself with the organic richness of Deyga’s Lemongrass Essential oil. The oil is extracted by the steam distillation process of lemongrass leaves. It has covered a wide array of benefits including protection against skin infections, strengthening hair follicles, alleviating insomnia, anxiety, and boosting energy. In addition, it also acts as a great insect repellent.


Citronella grass grows up to 2m with a red steam base. Citronella essential oil is a through-body enhancer due to its antiseptic properties. Hold on to the real goodness of citronella grass in Deyga’s Citronella Essential Oil. A potent detoxifier extracted with the steam distillation of citronella grass. 100% pure and natural essential oil provides you with its emerging advantages like cleansing and tightening of pores, clearing skin complexion, improving your skin tone, controlling oil production and greasiness in the scalp, adding a bounce to your hair, a great insect repellent, and a fantastic natural air freshener.


• Citronella has wider, deep green coloured blade-like leaves and features a strong fragrance and taste.
• Lemongrass has narrow, light green leaves with a light lemony scent and taste.
• Lemongrass is edible. It is also used as a major ingredient in seasoning and spices. It can be added to herbal tea.
• On the other hand, citronella can be used to make cleaning products, deodorants, perfumes, and soaps.
Once you get all the differences between citronella and lemongrass, you can cultivate them as per your needs. And just to add a recap, the best way to differentiate them is the stem colour.
