Traditional uses for Pompia Essential Oil include -

Also known as Pumpia and China Citron Essential Oil, Pompia is a very precious and rare Citrus Essential Oil, and we at Mantra Aromatherapy are delighted to offer it as part of our Rare and Remarkable Citrus Essential Oil range.

Pompia is a hybrid variety of Citrus, closely related to Buddha's Hand and Citron. 

Pompia like Citron has an excessively thickened rind and pith with a very small amount of quite dry pulp that yields a minimal amount of juice.  It's close relative - Buddha's Hand has no pulp and is made up entirely of a thickened rind and pith. 

The aroma of Pompia Essential Oil is exquisite - it has the fresh & zesty aroma of Lemon but without the bitterness associated with Lemon Essential Oil. It is fragrant and sweet-like (lemon pip sweets spring to mind) and has mild honey and spicy undertones.

This irresistible combination makes burning a few drops a delight , and it can be used in perfumery to create unique fragrances or as an uplifting and refreshing element to a massage blend.

As it is a rare product we are currently only able to offer pure Citron Essential Oil in 1ml, 5ml and 10ml sizes.

Pompia Essential Oil is stimulating to the body.  It helps combat anxiety, mental fatigue and nervous conditions when used regularly.

Pompia is also highly anti-bacterial, a useful anti-fungicidal agent and is naturally high in anti-oxidants, making it a popular choice to use in body, hair and skin care preparations as well as candles, potpourri and soaps if you feel like making something very special.
