Before we talk more about lemongrass oil let’s ask what is lemongrass? Lemongrass is a herb that belongs to the grass family of Poaceae. It is often used in cooking as well as herbal medicine.
Lemongrass oil comes from the leaves or grasses of the plant, most often the Cymbopogon Flexuosus or Cymbopogon Citratus plants varieties.
The oil has a light and fresh lemony scent with earthy undertones. It is used to relieve muscle pain, externally to kill bacteria, ward off insects, and reduce body aches.
Lemongrass and citrus oil provide a fresh uplifting feeling and are known to be a natural anti depressant. It is both stimulating and relaxing as well as soothing and balancing.
Lemongrass essential oil is a source of essential vitamins such as vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, folate and vitamin C. It also provides essential minerals such as magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, copper, potassium, calcium, zinc and iron.
