Lemongrass Essential Oil - Organic
A potent purifying essential oil with a refreshing lemony, herbal aroma! Lemongrass oil contains high quantities of geranial and neral—together known as “citral.” Citral makes lemongrass a powerful choice for cleaning the whole house. Use it for areas where germs and fungi like to gather, such as the shower stall. While lemongrass’s aroma is calming, citral can irritate skin, so dilute this oil well for topical blends.
Lemongrass essential oil is ideal for inhalation and cleaning. Dilute it well and use a low drop count. Use it for muscles, joints, immune support, reducing germs, repelling bugs, stress relief, and relaxation. Clean the tub, tile, and sink with a lemongrass oil spray. (Is there anything more relaxing than a fresh, clean room? For a sore, tender ankle, make a soothing recovery blend with just a drop or two of lemongrass in carrier oil. When your mind is running in circles, make a room spray with lemongrass essential oil. It can calm worries and help you relax.
