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.

I ordered some Sandalwood Oil. It arrived very quickly but it was not the sort of oil I wanted. This was my fault as I don’t know one type of oil from another. I rang Customer Service and .she was very helpful but they didn’t have the type of oil I was looking for. She agreed to refund what I had paid as soon as they had received the oil I was returning. I would highly recommend this company.

This was my first order with the company, the items are very nice quality, include some more unusual oils that aren't easy to get; items were delivered very quickly and packaged very well. I'll definitely order again.
