Lemongrass Essential Oil

I added lemongrass to my collection of essential oils when I started having varicose pain (known to help promote circulation and is an anti-inflammatory oil). Rubbing diluted lemongrass on the backs of my thighs a few times a day helped to alleviate some of the aching, throbbing, and cramp-like pain that would some days leave me unable to be on my feet for long periods of time.

Historically lemongrass has been used as a sedative to the central nervous system, for infections, fevers, and as an insecticide. Lemongrass has a lovely aroma that is sweeter and and less sour than lemon. Two popular uses for lemongrass in the essential oil community is for leg/foot cramps and thyroid issues.

Diffuse lemongrass to help encourage awareness and purify the air. Use it aromatically, orally, or topically to boost your immune system. Carry it with you and use as an natural antibacterial. If peppermint is too strong of a scent for you, use lemongrass to reduce your fever! Fan of Asian and Indian food? Use a drop of lemongrass in your savory dishes.

Lemongrass is an oil that doesn't always get the limelight but don't let that fool you, it's just as valuable to have in your collection.
