Diffusing: Lemongrass is refreshing and deodorizing as well as being uplifting for the spirit, a good blend is with Geranium or Bergamot.
Stress reduction & clarity: it has a clean calming scent which helps relieve stress, anxiety, irritability, insomnia, and prevent drowsiness.
Outdoor sprays: Lemongrass is known as being a helpful addition to outdoor sprays for insects such as mosquitoes and ants, due to its high citral and geraniol content.
Pain: Lemongrass may also be added, well-diluted, to a carrier oil to boost circulation, bringing warmth to overused muscles and joints, soothing headaches and muscle spasms. It contains citral, a powerful skin sensitiser, so it is very important to use proper dilution.
Try 2 drops of lemongrass in two teaspoons (10 ml) of carrier oil along with 2 drops of lavender or sweet marjoram for a soothing muscle rub.
Skin care & Cosmetic products: add Lemongrass to soaps, deodorants, shampoos ( it can strengthen your hair follicles), lotions, and tonics.
Cautions: To avoid the risk of various safety issues, we recommend a maximum dilution of 0.6% for topical applications.
Ingestion: The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy.
