Native to India, organic lemongrass essential oil has a long history with South America and Southeast Asia. It is predominantly grown in India, China, and Central America and is a top selling essential oil.
Organic lemongrass essential oil has many benefits including the ability to effectively work as an insect repellent. It is also strongly antifungal and antimicrobial, riding unwanted bacteria from the skin and countertops alike. Couple this with the fresh scent and the oil is quite suitable for a myriad of cosmetic applications such as soaps, deodorants, perfumes, and much more. The fresh scent works wonders on the mind and infuses a sense of vitality and is considered an antidepressant. Organic lemongrass oil has analgesic properties helping to recover from muscle soreness, arthritis, and jet lag.
Lemongrass essential oil is an excellent addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, incense, candles, and aromatherapy.
