Lemongrass Essential Oil
Famed for its much sought after flavour, the fresh & lemony Lemongrass offers an array of medicinal uses & aromatherapy benefits, considered one of the most versatile herbs – often known as the ‘storehouse’ of essentials.
Having earned the name ‘fever grass’, known to reduce body temperatures, this one owes its origins to the tropical lands of Asia. It is essentially effective as an insect repellent, also acting as a natural perfume and a non-toxic air freshener – creating a relaxing atmosphere and deodorizing unpleasant scents.
A fast growing & aromatic perennial grass with fibrous stalks, it hints of a citrusy aroma, wherein the essential oil is extracted by means of steam distillation of the leaves and flowering tops of the plant.
