Description: Organic Lemongrass oil produced by steam distillation of the freshly cut and partially dried grass of Cymbopogon flexuosus. Lemongrass essential oil is used as aromatherapy to relieve muscle pain, externally to kill bacteria, ward off insects, and reduce body aches, and internally to help your digestive system. It is also known to prevent cellulite. It can also be used for flavoring tea and soups, and it adds fragrance to cosmetics, soaps, and homemade deodorizers. Organic Lemongrass oil is a member of the grass family, and like regular lawn grass, it grows in clumps, and its leaves are bright green with sharp edges. However, mature lemongrass clumps are larger, reaching a height of about three feet. For centuries, lemongrass has been used in flavouring for tea and cuisines, as well as a remedy for various diseases and illnesses. In East India and Sri Lanka, traditional herbalists mixed it with other herbs to treat fever, stomach upsets, diarrhoea, and irregular menstruation. There is also substantial evidence of its use in early Chinese civilization to alleviate headaches, flu, colds, and rheumatic pains.
