Common Uses

Most people are familiar with citronella scented candles used for repelling insects. Cedarwood essential oil blends well with citronella to round out the scent of the smoke. When diffused, Citronella provides clarity. Topically, citronella helps improve the appearance of oily skin. Diffuse, mix with a blend, or mix a few drops in a spray bottle with water and spray to exposed skin/clothing, or apply in a 2-5% dilution.

Fun Fact

Citronella was one of the world’s dominant insect repellents before the introduction of DDT. Recent history has indicated that Citronella is once again becoming the product of choice for health-conscious customers. Citronella essential oil is listed on the minimum-risk pesticide list of the EPA, which means that it can be used as an effective and active ingredient in pesticides (including insect repellents) when blended with other minimum-risk ingredients, and poses minimal risk to human and environmental health.

About Us

Melanie’s Health & Nutrition really began with Auminay Naturals which was formerly SkinTastic Creations. This product line took root over twenty years ago as Melanie faced cancer. After becoming aware of alternative therapies she worked to change to a healthier lifestyle and learn about herbs. She developed what is now the Auminay Naturals product line by eventually learning to infuse these herbs into products that used natural ingredients to provide skin care products for a healthier lifestyle. In 2017, as a newly certified Master Herbalist, Melanie opened Melanie’s Health & Nutrition to provide a resource for the Tooele community. The Auminay products are now made in the back section of the store. Melanie and her staff love to serve the community and provide opportunities for learning, as well as products that empower people to be healthier.
