Lemongrass Oil

What is Lemongrass Oil?

Lemongrass oil is the oil extracted from the leaves and stalks of the tropical lemongrass plant. This citrusy herb is used in both cooking and herbal medicine. From muscle pain to stress, lemongrass oil can help relieve a wide range of health concerns.

Benefits of Lemongrass Oil

  • Relaxes muscles and relieves pain

    Studies show that applying lemongrass oil (along with a carrier oil) topically to an area of soreness has proven to help relieve aches, cramps and muscle spasms. It also helps relieve pain by increasing circulation to injured areas and throughout the body.

  • Clears inflammation

    Chronic inflammation can slow the healing process and cause increased pain levels. Lemongrass, however, has been proven to act as both an anti-inflammatory and analgesic for holistic pain relief.

  • Reduces stress

    Lemongrass oil’s unique scent has powerful anti-anxiety properties. Studies show that exposure to lemongrass oil in a high-stress situation decreases anxiety and tension.

  • Slows hair loss

    When applied to the scalp, Lemongrass oil has been shown to improve the health of hair follicles and reduce inflammation of the skin, proving to be a natural alternative to chemical-based hair loss treatments.

What is Lemongrass Used For?

Lemongrass oil is used around the world as a treasured culinary ingredient, as well as in fragrances, cosmetics, aromatherapy, and herbal medicines. Many people use lemongrass oil directly on the skin combined with a gentle carrier oil to promote overall skin health and well-being.
