Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil
Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil (Cymbopogon citratus) is a fragrant grass with aromatic characteristics similar to citronella. Our organic Lemongrass Essential Oil is from Sri Lanka and has a fresh, clean, lemony scent.
The leaves of Lemongrass have been used in traditional medicine in the areas in which it grows and also impart a distinctive taste to many local dishes.
I love the fresh clean intense aroma of our organic lemongrass oil at first but I find it best to inhale very small amounts since the aroma can be a bit overwhelming.
Safety Information: Lemongrass is a skin sensitizer and may cause skin irritation. Also, unlike most other essential oils, which should be diluted to 2.5% before being applied to the skin, lemongrass should be diluted to no more than 0.7%.
