We wanted to share a little bit about lemongrass. Not only does it offer a fabulous fragrance, it is also versatile and hardworking. We love it and we think you will too!

Lemongrass is a fragrant, topical grass that produces an oil that has a lemony scent. It is used for cooking. Thai food uses a great deal of lemongrass – and we all know how delicious Thai dishes are! Lemongrass is also used for perfumes, in aromatherapy, for skin care and in naturopathic medicines.

The beneficial properties of lemongrass are that it is anti-bacterial, antiseptic and astringent. It is also a soothing agent – that’s why we use it in so many of our products like our Hand Cream, Body & Massage Oils and Dog Shampoo.

Lemongrass is often used to address muscle aches and pains, and you will often find it in massage oils for this reason. Lemongrass is used as an insect repellent. Many people put a few drops of essential oil into a spray bottle with water and use it for cleaning. Not only does it work well, it makes your house smell fresh and clean too!

When it comes to skin care, lemongrass is a superstar. It is an effective cleanser for all skin types. It can help to clear up acne, and its antiseptic and astringent properties help to support glowing skin. Even better news – it serves as a natural toner and strengthens skin tissue. (We always love to hear that!)

Lemongrass blends well with other citrus, wood oils and flowers – such as lavender and jasmine.

There are so many things you can do with lemongrass. Whichever way you use it, the fragrance is beautiful, and it is known to uplift your spirit and promote focus.

The good news is that lemongrass is a scent that just about everyone likes – it isn’t just for one gender. It smells fabulous on EVERY body!
