I have a citronella plant and the scent faintly reminds me of
geraniums. I pick the leaves and simmer them to keep the flies out of
my abode( i don't like closed doors ). I noticed that as they simmer
the water gets Really red, like boiled dried limes, then goes to a
pleasing deep burgundy. It also stained my pot a bit. Anyone tried
using citronella water, as one would coffee or tea, or tried
citronella oil? Curious. I bet it'd keep the winged away at the
outdoor gigs. :) But perhaps it's highly toxic? Anyone tried?
