Botanical name: Cymbopogon flexuosus
Country of origin: India
The oil comes from a fragrant Indian grass that is fast-growing and reaches heights of up to 1.5 m / 3 ft. In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, Lemongrass is used to help lower fever and calm the nervous system. Traditional Chinese medicine recommends Lemongrass oil to ease stomach pains and also to relieve headaches, colds, and rheumatism. Because the plant and its essential oil have a strong lemony scent, they are both used to keep stinging insects at bay.
Steamed-distilled from the leaves, Lemongrass Essential Oil has a fresh, slightly earthy, but strong citrusy scent. Refreshing, rejuvenating, stimulating, and balancing, it is used to inspire creativity and improve mental clarity.
How to use:
Lemongrass Essential Oil is known for its invigorating and antiseptic properties. It can be used in facial toners for its astringent properties to help fight acne and oily skin. An excellent anti-depressant, Lemongrass Essential Oil tones and fortifies the nervous system and can be used in baths for soothing muscular nerves and pain.
Citronella may irritate sensitive skin. Avoid it in baths or massage if you have sensitive skin or broken skin, or have allergic reactions to grasses and pollens. Avoid use if diagnosed with glaucoma or prostatic hyperplasia, or on children. Use well diluted. For topical application, a skin test is recommended prior to use. Avoid contact with eyes. If pregnant or on medication, consult a health-care practitioner before using.
It is recommended that this essential oil is stored in dark amber, blue or green glass bottles since it has been found to dissolve aluminum bottles.
