the skin, and I believe its one of those that is a phototoxin. That
means you can get a hellacious sunburn through citronella. Several
citrus terps do that .... so I don't use them, for the sunburn thing,
the skin irritation, and ... I've had several people say they're
allergic to citrus on the skin.
