Sweet Lemongrass

Today we want to share a new oil: Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)!

This is a popular scent in commercial products like lotions and room sprays, but the pure essential oil offers more than just a pretty smell! Our favorite oil comes from Pompeii Organics.

Lemongrass’ chemical makeup is mostly Aldehydes, a type of natural chemical that fights infection and soothes pain. This makes the oil excellent for fungal infections, irritation, and inflammation.

Lemongrass is great as an insect repellent. It also cools the body, making it useful for fevers, and is a wonderful digestive aid.

With this being said, however, it is imperative to use proper caution with Lemongrass. It’s not as gentle as other oils and can cause irritation to the skin. Use the lowest possible dilution and blend with more skin-friendly oils like Lavender (angustifolia) or Carrot Seed. NEVER take Lemongrass internally unless directed by a certified aromatherapist. These precautions will ensure that you use Lemongrass to its fullest potential!

Happy Tuesday!

 

Geranium

Geranium (Pelargonium roseum) essential oil is something we sold out of at the Zelienople festival! This is an amazing oil with a ton of helpful properties.

According to Pompeii Organics, geranium is amazing for the skin. It’s an astringent and it also heals and rebuilds cells! It soothes inflammation and fights bacteria and fungus. It’s cooling to the skin; we recommend it to a lot of clients who deal with hot flashes.

Geranium is also used as an insect repellent. You can mix ten drops of it per ounce of lotion and apply before going out.
