Deodoriser and Insect repellent
It has a pleasant, refreshing scent and antiseptic qualities that, when diffused, effectively cleanse the air and deter airborne insects.
With diuretic qualities Lemongrass can be used to support the relief of fluid accumulation caused by long periods of standing. 5 drops to a foot bath has an added deodorising effect.
Lemongrass is a great refreshing scent to be added to a massage blend, especially for sports massage as it offers a balancing and cleansing effect. Add 5 drops per massage.
To support even temperature and help natural balance in a heated body, add 5-10 drops of Lemongrass to a tepid bath, or to Sweet Almond oil and rub all over the body, as required. Always consult a health specialist to rule out complications.
