Lemongrass is a powerful immune stimulant and has historically been used for infectious disease and fever. When used with Lavender, it makes an excellent tonic for the immune and lymphatic systems, promoting blood flow. Lemongrass also supports the body in breaking down cellulite and reducing fluid retention, and it is strengthening to blood vessels.
Lemongrass is also a powerful support to tendons, cartilage, and connective tissue, adding strength and support when needed.
A sedative to the central nervous system, Lemongrass is extremely beneficial for stressrelated conditions and for times of nervous exhaustion as it is energizing yet soothing. It is also great support for dispelling anger and frustration. Lemongrass will ease headache pain and is an excellent support for tired, aching tendons, cartilage and connective tissue. It's excellent in massage as it eases muscular spasms, sprains, and strains, and is useful after exercise as it improves muscle tone and disperses lactic acid throughout the body. If applying to large areas of the body, dilute with Carrier Oil.
A beneficial oil for skin, Lemongrass is great for wrinkles and aging skin when diluted with Carrier Oil. It also reduces excessive perspiration and acts as a deodorant and a purifier for oily skin. Its tonifying astringent properties make it excellent for cleansing oily skin and blackheads and for tightening pores. It is very effective in shampoo formulations for oily hair and scalp, or for oily scalp with dry hair.
Lemongrass essential oil is delightful when steaming foods such as rice and vegetables, or poaching fish. The beneficial properties of the oil are not destroyed by excess heat and are instead absorbed into the food, imparting a nice flavor at the same time.
