Lemongrass Essential Oil

Lemongrass is steam distilled from Cymbopogon flexuosus, one of several aromatic flowering grasses in the Poaceae family. Originally native to India and Guatemala, this botanical now thrives around the world in warm, tropical climates. Lemongrass has a fresh aroma that neutralizes odors and makes an excellent addition to home cleaning solutions. Applied topically, it can be used to cleanse the skin and enhance massage. Lemongrass Vitality™ essential oil has a bright, citrusy flavor and may provide circulatory and digestive support when taken internally.* Lemongrass and Lemongrass Vitality are the same essential oil.

General Use

 

Topical
  • Dilute Lemongrass with V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex for massage after workouts, sports, or just a long and busy day.
  • Add Lemongrass to your nightly face regimen for its skin-cleansing benefits.
WHERE TO DIFFUSE
  • Freshen up a damp or musty bathroom with Lemongrass’s bright, sweet fragrance.
  • Bring an uplifting note to a yoga or meditation session by filling your workout room with the crisp, grassy aroma.
Aromatic
  • Diffuse 8–10 drops in your favorite diffuser or add a few drops to your cleaning formulas to fill your home with the clean and refreshing smell of Lemongrass and to help with musky odors.
  • Make your own substitute for chemical-based air fresheners. Add up to 10 drops to a small spray bottle filled with distilled water and spritz it over carpets, furniture, and linens to eliminate stale odors.

Diffusing Notes

These are approximate drops.  Adjust recipes to your needs.  If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired.  You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils.  Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils.  These diffusers are safe to run all day.  Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing.  Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water.  For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.
