Lemongrass Essential Oil
Lemongrass, Cymbopogon flexuosus, has a wonderful, uplifting lemony scent that is steam distilled from a grass harvested in Guatemala. Lemongrass has long been used in Eastern medicine to treat muscular pain and stiffness. Its astringent properties make it useful in the treatment of acne, blemishes, and other skin inflammations. Lemongrass essential oil is particularly high in anti bacterial, antiseptic, healing and soothing properties. Skin soothing properties help cleanse your skin without the drying that overexcites the oil glands.
In hair care, lemongrass oil increases fullness and body and adds luster to dull hair. It may also be an effective treatment to combat hair loss and oily hair and scalp conditions. Some herbalists believe that lemongrass oil can strengthen the hair follicles, another benefit for those suffering from thinning or weak hair.
Aromatherapy Properties: There has been recent research in India which shows that lemongrass acts as sedative on the central nervous system. The scent of Lemongrass is soothing, stimulating and refreshing. Aromatherapists value lemongrass for its ability to both calm and revitalize, to relieve tension, invigorate and inspire.
