Lemongrass

 logoLemongrass essential oil is steam distilled from its leaves and contains the chemical constituents of neral,
geranial, limonene, and beta-caryophyllene.

Cymbopogon flexuosus

 

Lemongrass essential oil has origins in Southeast Asia, though it is now cultivated in countries around the world. It is distilled from the leaves and woody stalks of the lemongrass plant, and it produces a subtle citrus-herb scent. Lemongrass oil offers a sophisticated and relaxing aroma that can transform your home’s environment into a comforting sanctuary.

An essential oil, when inhaled, can reach the emotional center of the brain within seconds. This is one of the incredible benefits of aromatherapy. Try diffusing Lemongrass for an aroma that can inspire a sense of clarity and relaxation for you and your family as well as for its purifying properties that make for a refreshing, clean smelling home.

Try this: Make your own substitute for chemical-based air fresheners. Add up to 10 drops to a small spray bottle filled with distilled water and spritz it over carpets, furniture, and linens to eliminate stale odors.

Topical Benefits

Lemongrass offers many benefits when applied topically. It is cleansing to the skin and warming to the muscles.

Try this: Dilute Lemongrass with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex for massage after workouts, sports, or just a long and busy day. Add Lemongrass to your nightly face regimen for its skin-cleansing benefits.

Companion Oils

Lemongrass pairs well with basil, cedarwood, clary sage, eucalyptus, geranium, jasmine, lavender, tea tree, and rosemary.
