This Lemongrass Essential Oil is extracted from Cymbopogon citratus, also known as ‘oil grass’, from the fresh or partly dried leaves by steam distillation.
This oil is said to fight fatigue and help refresh a tired body and mind. It is also a pleasant-smelling way of keeping a pet free of fleas and ticks. Lemongrass contains citral, which provides the main flavour in lemon peel.
Lemongrass oil is believed to relieve jet lag, headaches, nervous exhaustion, and stress. It boosts the parasympathetic nervous system, for faster recovery from an illness, and stimulates glandular secretions. It helps tone muscles and tissue, hence relieving muscle pain.
It’s useful for treating sore throat, laryngitis, and fever, and helps stop the spreading of infection.
It helps with colitis, indigestion, and gastroenteritis.
It clears oily skin and reduces excessive perspiration.
Lemongrass is a perennial aromatic grass that used to grow wild in India, where it is known as choomana poolu. It is also known as Indian Verbena or Indian Melissa oil and is used in Ayurveda, the ancient traditional art of healing, to help bring down fevers and treat infectious illnesses; it is therefore also called ‘fevergrass’.
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to the desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity.
Aroma Jewellery: Simply add a few drops of oil directly into a clay pendant or onto an insert pad, felt ball or lava bead. Secure the closure of your jewellery, and enjoy that scent throughout the day. The warmth of the jewellery against your skin will help the oils diffuse into the air around you. Just top up with additional oils as needed and try to avoid neat oils coming into direct contact with your skin.
For best use and most economical application use our Oil Dispensing Glass Pipette Dropper specifically designed to easily dispensing your essential oils or fragrance oils into your diffusers or jewellery inserts.
