lemongrass essential oil
Lemongrass essential oil is known for its strong aroma reminiscent of lemon and cut grass—as the name suggests. It has a revitalizing effect on the mind and when inhaled can really get you going. Rubbed into the skin, lemongrass oil stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system which can help your immune system. It is often used as a total revitalizing body tonic, skin toner and to close pores.
Uses: You can derive the benefits of lemongrass essential oil through steam inhalation, in creams or adding a few drops to the water in an oil burner.
Cautionary Note: Lemongrass oil is quite powerful and may irritate your skin. Thus low dosage is best.
