Citronellol is an alcohol found in citronella, eucalyptus, geranium, lemon, and rose.
Alcohols are the most therapeutically beneficial type of component in an essential oil, and have a low toxicity for safer use with fragile populations (like the elderly). Alcohols can be sensitizing when oxidized, so proper storage is important.
