Abstract

The essential oils of lemongrass, citronella and eucalyptus have traditionally been regarded as large-volume oils used in a very wide range of perfumery products and, to a much smaller extent, in flavours. They are used either as perfumery oils in their own right or, particularly in the case of lemongrass oil and citronella oil, as sources of individual chemical constituents or their derivatives which are themselves important materials in the perfumery or flavouring industries. As oils in their own right they tend to be used in relatively low-priced products, although some of their derivatives have applications in high-class perfumery. This report contains a review of recent market trends and their implications for the future of these essential oils and for both existing and potential producers.
