Lemongrass is one of those truly virtual essential oils that offers its users a multitude of benefits. Lemongrass is essentially known to be added in many Asian dishes, however its uses go far beyond food. Lemongrass essential oil can be applied topically, digested, and used aromatically, making this oil extremely diverse.
Lemongrass Oil Uses
Lemongrass helps support healthy digestion due to the chemical makeup; lemongrass includes aldehydes known for their ability to maintain healthy gastrointestinal function. Add a few drops to your food or beverages to add flavor and obtain dietary support. Add a few drops along with Peppermint oil to a capsule to support healthy gastrointestinal function.
Lemongrass works wonders in a diffuser as well. If you’re feeling nervous, mentally fatigued, or stress out, lemongrass helps promote a positive outlook and gives you a refreshing feeling. If you don’t have a diffuser, or don’t have time, rub a drop of the oil in your hands, and inhale softly for 30 seconds at a time.
Lemongrass is often used as an ingredient for naturally repelling insects. Diffuse lemongrass outside to keep mosquitoes away or spritz lemongrass oil on your skin before you go outside. You can even spritz it on your porch or patio to keep away the bugs!
Because lemongrass is soothing, we often use it for massage. The refreshing aroma combined with its soothing property holds purifying benefits for skin and helps the client feel relaxed. Diluted in coconut oil and massaged to muscles and joints makes for a soothing and tranquil experience.
Lemongrass can even be used as part of your beauty routine to promote pure, toned skin. Add a few drops of the oil to your daily cleanser or moisturizer to help tone and purify skin. Lemongrass provides much of the same benefits Melaluca does by helping promote healthy fingernails and toenails.
Blending Lemongrass with Other Oils
Because lemongrass oil includes subtle citrus notes it works well with oils that share similar qualities. Blend Lemongrass oil with Basil, Spearmint or spicy Cardamom oil. Lemongrass is pungent with a smoky aroma; refreshing and herbaceous.
If you’re pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician before using the oil. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas. Ask us for more information on how you should use the oil, how we use the oil, and how you can purchase the oil for yourself!
