Benefits and uses for Lemongrass Essential Oil

By Rania Watts

The first time I heard the word lemongrass was associated as an ingredient in Thai cooking. I had no idea that there were so many benefits to its uses.  

For one, it houses “antibacterial properties” that can be used to treat various ailments such as “skin infections, pneumonia, blood infections, and serious intestinal infections.” (Healthline Editorial Team) 

If you want to read more about this specific topic, I suggest that you look at the Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine, Volume 3, Issue 7 From August 2020 on the Science Direct website. It is the second link below. 

Please ensure that you mix your Lemongrass Essential oil with a carrier oil. DO NOT USE IT ON SKIN DIRECTLY,  and make sure to do a patch test first in case of any allergic reactions.
