This Lemongrass Essential Oil is extracted from Cymbopogon citratus, also known as ‘oil grass’. This oil is said to fight fatigue, and help refresh a tired body and mind. It is also a pleasant-smelling way of keeping a pet free of fleas and ticks. Lemongrass contains citral which provides the main flavour in lemon peel.
Lemongrass oil is believed to relieve jet lag, headaches, nervous exhaustion, and stress. It boosts the parasympathetic nervous system, for faster recovery from an illness, and stimulates glandular secretions. It helps tone muscles and tissue, hence relieving muscle pain. It’s useful for treating sore throat, laryngitis, and helps stop the spreading of infection. It is also used to help bring down fevers it is therefore also called ‘fevergrass’.
It helps with colitis, indigestion, and gastroenteritis. It clears oily skin and reduces excessive perspiration. It can irritate the skin, however, so care must be taken when used on skin. Avoid use during pregnancy.
