Lemongrass Essential Oil
Cymbopogon flexuosus Origin: Sri Lanka
There is something so consoling about entering a freshly cleaned space. Lemongrass is the tidy essential oil.
Its purifying qualities can make profound change. Additionally, Lemongrass can provide emotional calm through its earthy citrus aroma. Inhaling a few drops of Lemongrass or adding it to a bath can ease the nerves and provide mental clarity.
The entire plant, a tufted grass with numerous stiff stems, is put through a steam distillation process to extract the oil. Lemongrass is a sensational addition to citrus or floral blends.
