What is your favourite essential oil? Is it floral, fruity, woody, exotic, spicy, herbaceous, warm, cold, soft, invigorating, relaxing, calming, stimulating or awakening? There are so many to choose from and in our workshops, perfume making, aromatherapy and perfume therapy, Lemongrass essential oil (cymbopogon citratus) seems to be a big favourite!
Reviving for tired minds, tired bodies, tired spirits! It is stimulating, energising and re-invigorating which makes it brilliant for recovery after sport, jet lag, business people with packed diaries, huge responsibilities, lots of commitments and vast travel schedules.
For me, Lemongrass is the go-to oil for boosting immunity and helping to fight off any infections or viruses. It is a strong prophylactic which is an agent that boosts immunity and fights highly infectious organisms/bacteria.
So a great way to use Lemongrass would be in an oil burner or diffuser to kill airborne microbes, lift and freshen up the home/office and as a foot oil! Dilute into a carrier oil (2 drops per 5ml) and massage onto the souls of the feet everyday to keep you fit, healthy and well!
Lemongrass is a good oil and oily or acne prone skin and it brings good skin tone. It is a good insect repellent, helpful in the healing of athlete’s foot and other similar fungal infections and it helps to reduces excess sweating at the same time as providing a wonderful aroma – a brilliant deodorant!
Excellent for aching muscles and for reviving tired limbs. Increases suppleness of muscle tissue and stimulates circulation. Refreshing and reviving for the feet in a foot bath.
Contraindications? May irritate sensitive areas of skin.
