Organic Lemongrass Essential Oil
Cymbopogon flexuosus, or Lemongrass, is a tall, perennial grass native to southern India. It is often referred to as East Indian lemongrass, to differentiate it from its West Indian (Hatian) cousin (Cymbopogon citratus). The components of citral and myrcene make Cymbopogon flexuosus essential oil a popular natural remedy for a wide range of ailments.
Lemongrass essential oil when used topically may help with skin conditions such as acne, oily skin, and fungal infections. It has antibacterial and astringent properties that can help to cleanse and tighten the skin. Applying diluted lemongrass essential oil to sore muscles and joints will help you feel better quickly.
The oil helps not only the skin, but also the mind. When you’re moody, down, or struggling with anxiety, its pleasant aroma can help create a calming atmosphere and boost your energy to a better state. Inhaling Lemongrass essential oil reduces stress and promotes relaxation. The scent will help you find peace when you’re confused by helping you to calm down.
