100% Pure Essential Lemongrass Oil
If you’re not already familiar with it, you’ll love the aroma of our pure Lemongrass Essential Oil. It’s fresh and citrusy, with grassy and herbaceous notes.
However, AWO’s Lemongrass Essential Oil is much more than just a pretty smell! Because of its astringent properties, it’s widely used in facial toners, to help reduce outbreaks, combat greasy skin and fight blemishes. It’s also known as an energising stimulant, making it a great reviver – particularly helpful when it comes to combating jet lag.
Lemongrass oil also shares many characteristics with citronella, so can be an effective insect repellent. Can be used effectively with our Ultrasonic Oil Diffuser
Use lemongrass oil with other types of natural oils to create an even stronger insect repellent. Add a few drops of lemongrass oil to other cosmetics for an aromatic yet effective way to discourage insects from biting. Lemongrass oil can be added to moisturizing lotions, sunscreens, shampoos and liquid hand soap. Just add lemongrass essential oil until its scent starts to dominate the other scents of the product.
Grow lemongrass in your yard in order to have continual access to the oil. Lemongrass grows quickly and easily in many climates, and the plant itself tends to act as an insect repellent. You can extract the oil by grinding up the leaves, by chopping the lower stalks of the plant into small pieces, or by rubbing the juices directly on your skin.
