Nature/Essence – Invigorating & Cooling
FOR THE SKIN
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.
FOR THE BODY
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.
FOR THE MIND
While Lemongrass has an overall invigorating action, it has a tonic effect on the nervous system to balance and revive rather than overstimulate.
FOR THE HOME
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.
