Lemongrass - not just for curry!

Lemongrass is a tropical, grassy plant used in cooking and herbal medicine. Extracted from the leaves and stalks of the plant of the same name, lemongrass oil has a powerful, citrus scent. It can often be found in soaps and other personal care products, including our speciality Muscle Soak bath salts.

Lemongrass essential oil offers unique properties including being cooling, refreshing, and stimulating, which is why it is used in massage and in compresses after sports injuries.

This essential oil is also very soothing and is good for headaches. Combined with its properties for supporting good skin care, its powerful toning action helps reduce oily skin and rebalance overactive glands.

Used by healthcare providers, lemongrass can help to treat digestive problems and high blood pressure and is a popular tool in aromatherapy to help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.
