Lemongrass Essential Oil

Lemongrass Essential Oil

Antibacterial, toning and fortifying. Lemongrass Essential Oil has a fortifying action that helps to restore muscle tone and ease aching muscles at the end of a particularly strenuous day, or after training hard in sports. It also strengthens connective tissue, which is why this essential oil is popular with athletes as a pre-sports rub to both enhance performance, and help alleviate the aches and pains caused by over-training.

The natural toning action of Lemongrass Essential Oil is good for reducing open pores and also helps to rebalance overactive sebaceous glands, making it perfect for normalising oily skin. Few essential oils possess more potent antiseptic, antiviral and antifungal properties than lemongrass, making this an essential part of your ‘first-aid’ collection as well as for helping clear spots and acne prone skin.

Used in a shampoo base, Lemongrass Oil stimulates hair follicles and encourages regrowth for those in the early stages of hair loss. It can be used effectively as an air-freshener in a vaporiser or as a natural deodorant, and is a highly effective insect repellent.

More Information

When 12 antiviral essential oils were tested in vitro against Herpes simplex (HSV-1) at the department of Microbiology in Japan*, C. citratus oil demonstrated the strongest antiviral activity of them all with complete inhibition at a concentration of only 0.1%. This result revealed the oil to be 10 times more effective than even tea tree, ravensara, peppermint or eucalyptus, which all needed a concentration of 1.0% to achieve the same result.
