Lemongrass essential oil is steam-distilled from the leaves of the Cymbopogon flexuosus. Its lemony, earthy aroma may promote awareness and purification.
Historically, lemongrass has been used for infections and fever, as an insecticide, and as a sedative to the central nervous system.
The French use it to treat bladder infections, fluid retention, edema, and varicose veins and to heal the digestive system and connective tissue.
Lemongrass is believed to support the immune system and strengthen muscles and bones. Other possible uses of lemongrass are to improve circulation, wake the lymphatic system, treat respiratory problems, and improve eyesight.
Use topically, aromatically in a diffuser, in capsule form, or as a flavoring in cooking.
