Lemongrass Organic Pure Essential Oil (10ml) - Cymbopogon Citratus
Lemongrass is a fresh, sharp and sweet scent with a lemony and light rose fragrance. It is similar to the scent of Citronella but considered to be slightly finer.
This oil is wonderfully uplifting, a great aid to revitalize the body and a nice pick-me-up. Lemongrass is a great combat to grogginess or drowsiness and with its stimulating properties it can help to overcome tiredness, particularly if you are feeling mentally exhausted. It can stimulate awareness and refresh the mind; a useful aid for mental fatigue or for loss of concentration.
Known to be a very strong antiseptic and disinfectant, it is useful for fighting the spread of infections, particularly respiratory infections such as sore throats and laryngitis. It is also an effective painkiller that can ease injuries and aches and pains, and can help to tone muscles to make them suppler. Lemongrass can be used as a face cleanser and tonic to tighten the pores and balance oily skin or acne.
Within other uses, try diffusing lemongrass at home or in the office; this will not only freshen the room and disinfect the air but also can help to increase concentration. Add a few drops to cleaning water for household appliances, furniture and bathrooms, or use as an insect repellent.
Origin & History
Lemongrass is Native to Sri Lanka and South India and is widely cultivated in Africa, Guatemala and other tropical regions. In India, Lemongrass has a long history of being used within medicine most popularly to treat infectious diseases or fevers, but it also used as a tea to aid in gastric upsets. To this day the oil is still used in medicine as well as culinary flavouring, perfumes, soaps, detergents and within the pharmaceutical industry.
Adding Lemongrass to your blends can create a fresh lemony note to the aroma, try blending with pine, eucalyptus, juniper, geranium, lavender, lime, basil cedarwood, coriander, jasmine, neroli, niaouli, palmarosa, rosemary, tea tree and yarrow.
How to Store Your Oils: Essential oils can be quite delicate substances and factors such as strong light, heat, air and moisture can affect them. They are best kept in a cool, dark and dry place ideally in a box and in a cupboard. We wouldn't recommend transferring your essential oils into plastic bottles as the plastic can interact with the chemical makeup of your essential oils and may cause the plastic to deteriorate. Keeping them in their dark, amber bottle with the lid will prolong their life. Oils that are stored in the correct condition should last for years (citrus oils have a slightly shorter life).
Size: 10ml, presented in an amber glass bottle.
