What is Lemongrass?

Lemongrass, with its vibrant and citrusy aroma, is a herbaceous plant renowned for its culinary and medicinal uses. Native to tropical regions like Southeast Asia, its essential oils are prized for their aromatic qualities and are often used in aromatherapy to promote relaxation and alleviate stress. Beyond its culinary and therapeutic benefits, lemongrass is also valued for its antimicrobial properties and is commonly used in skin and hair care products to reduce irritation and inflammation.

What does Lemongrass do for your skin?

Organic Lemongrass essential oil offers several benefits for the skin, thanks to its remarkable properties:

Oil Control: Lemongrass helps regulate oil production in the skin, making it beneficial for those with Oily or Combination skin types. By balancing oil production, lemongrass can help prevent clogged pores.

Helps with breakouts: Lemongrass contains compounds like citral and limonene, which have antibacterial and antifungal properties. This makes lemongrass oil beneficial for combating acne-causing bacteria and fungal infections on the skin.

Rosacea, Thread/Spider Veins and Redness: The anti-inflammatory properties of lemongrass can help soothe irritated skin and reduce the redness and swelling associated with conditions like Rosacea. 

Helps minimise Blackheads and large / open pores: Due to its astringent properties, lemongrass can help tone and tighten the skin, unblocking pores, getting rid of Blackheads and reducing the appearance of large pores and giving the skin a firmer, more youthful appearance.

Can you apply Lemongrass essential oil directly to skin?

Lemongrass oil is potent and can cause skin irritation or allergic reactions. Therefore, it's advisable to dilute lemongrass oil with a carrier oil, such as coconut or jojoba oil, before applying it topically. Better still, choose a safety certified natural organic product made with lemongrass essential oil. Then you can be certain the dilution is correct which reduces the risk of skin irritation while still allowing you to enjoy the benefits of its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Always perform a patch test on a small area of skin before widespread use to ensure you don't experience any adverse reactions.
