Uses and Benefits of Lemongrass Essential Oil
Lemongrass Essential Oil (Cymbopogon citratus) is a citrus scented herb that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine and southeast Asian cooking for centuries. Besides adding a delicious, refreshing flavour to culinary dishes and teas, lemongrass has many medicinal benefits when consumed. It supports a healthy digestive system and eases digestive discomforts such as cramping and intestinal gas.
Lemongrass is often used topically in conjunction with massage to relieve joint and muscle pain. It can also be applied as a facial toner to purify the skin and promote a healthier complexion. Its uplifting and invigorating aroma heightens the senses, promotes relaxation, and relieves headaches. Adding a few drops to a bath for a rejuvenating soak can help to ease tension and elevate mood.
