Lemongrass Essential Oil

R 55.00

11ml

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) is one of the most popular essential oils in aromatherapy and is great as a skin antiseptic. It is effective for toning muscles, relieving tired aching legs and eliminating lactic acid.

Purifying, stimulating and cleansing, Lemongrass can also help to relieve the symptoms of a variety of stress-related conditions; such as nervous exhaustion, headaches, and even body-aches. It has a strong, lemon-like aroma that can be used to repel insects and works well in open areas.

Essential oils are highly concentrated plant essences. The ingestion of essential oils is not recommended without prior advice from your health care practitioner. Dilute in a carrier or base when necessary.
