#News We had the opportunity bring a film production crew on a customized trip to film a few scene for the Paradise Malaysia episode for Nat Geo in Semadang earlier today. It was such a great experience for us to spend a day with Nick Baker who is a professional naturalist. He shared a lot of tips about herbal plants and interestingly he told us that the distinctive citronella smell can be used to treat foot odour because of its germicidal/antiseptic properties.

That is Nick Baker, a professional naturalist and author, talking to the camera about lemon grass and citronella which is of a different species of grass commonly found in Asia. Lemon grass is often used as a flavoring in Asian cuisine whereas Citronella is used to make citronella oil that keeps insect especially the mosquitoes and sand flies away.
