Lemongrass is used in Ayurveda as a traditional medicine for infection, and the essential oil indeed has strong antiseptic properties as well as a tonic effect on the whole body to promote wellness. 

Nature/Essence – Invigorating & Cooling 

Lemongrass oil has a toning and astringent effect on congested oily skin,    and has powerful activity for acne and fungal infections. Take care and use  at low concentrations as it may irritate the skin. 

Lemongrass is excellent in a massage oil for soft tissue injuries, bruises, muscle or joint aches, and to cool and ease sore, tired muscles after exercise.

While Lemongrass has an overall invigorating action, it has a tonic effect on the nervous system to balance and revive rather than overstimulate. 

A great oil to diffuse during cold and flu season to purify and refresh the air, and in summer as an insect repellent. It is also a good choice in household cleaning blends.  

 

BLENDS WELL WITH 
Basil,Cedarwood,Coriander,Geranium,Jasmine,Lavender andTea tree.
