A stimulating, uplifting and revitalising herbaceous aroma that can help heighten awareness and promote a positive outlook, boosting self-esteem, confidence, and mental strength.

Lemongrass essential oil is extracted from Cymbopogon citratus, also known as oil grass, from the fresh or partly-dried leaves by steam distillation. It is also known as Indian Verbena or Indian Melissa oil and is used in Ayurveda, the ancient traditional art of healing.

Lemongrass contains citral which provides the main flavour in lemon peel, which is said to help fight fatigue, and refresh a tired body and mind. Lemongrass oil is believed to relieve nervous exhaustion, jet lag, tension, headaches, and stress, and helps to tone muscles and tissue, hence relieving muscle discomfort.  Like citronella it can be used to repel insects and mosquitos, and is also a fragrant way of keeping a pet free of fleas and ticks.
