Emotionally, mentally and spiritually, lemongrass is said to be the oil of energetic cleansing. In this way it might be helpful in clearing energy from a home, or letting go of negative energy you might be holding onto, which may help those feeling stuck, heavy, or depressed.
Lemongrass essential oil naturally repels insects. Spray it around your home or diffuse in a burner and it will help keep the mozzies away.
It also works as an air freshener and deodoriser, so mixing Lemongrass with some coconut oil and rubbing under the arms can keep you smelling fresh.
Lemongrass oil when applied as a massage tonic can also help relax and relieve muscle pain.
In a burner lemon oil is both uplifting and cleansing which helps to remove stale air and rejuvenates the spirit.
Hint: In a bath a mix of Lemongrass and Marjoram essential oils will help to purify and tone the skin as well as soothe aching muscles and tendons.
Add 4-6 drops of oil to an oil burner or diffuser to enhance your mood.
May be added to water for a relaxing bath and tonic.
