From Asia, Africa, and Australia, Lemongrass has been a favorite addition to many dishes for its light, lemony zing. In traditional medicine remedies, oils obtained from Lemongrass were used in the treatment of various diseases. Used as a tool in aromatherapy to help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression, Lemongrass essential oil has a powerfully uplifting aroma that goes great in food and beauty care products. Traditionally, Lemongrass has been used to treat digestive problems and high blood pressure. Lemongrass is antibacterial and may be used to aid in the healing of wounds and help prevent infection.
Most who love the aroma of Lemongrass, do so mostly likely, because it contains a powerful component called Eugenol, that works like aspirin. It prevents blood platelets from clumping together. Also, serotonin is release, which is a hormone that helps enlivens mood, aid in peaceful sleep, regulate appetite, and aid in cognitive functioning.
Add a few drops to a carrier oil and apply to skin. Add to bath or freshen up your water with a couple drops of Lemongrass and drink with joy.
Put it in the diffuser, blend with other citrus oils and allow the good vibes to satiate your soul.
Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use and use on the feet when possible. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitization. If skin irritation does occur, wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Experts do not recommend using essential oil if you have a terminal illness, cancer, epilepsy or a number of other conditions. Not all oils are created equal, so test brands carefully, and never use an oil in a way not recommended. Our oil is therapeutic grade, however we do not recommend any oils be used internally unless on the advice of a medical professional.
