Lemongrass is one of those essential oils that gets swept under the rug in my opinion. You hear about Lavender, tea tree, Jasmine etc., but how about an essential oil that can relieve anxiety, halt pain, detox you internally and externally, tighten pores, and can fight all kinds infections and bacteria’s? This is lemongrass! It’s a powerhouse ingredient that should get more acknowledgment.
Lemongrass is native to regions like India, Indonesia, China, and South America. It is commonly known for it's sweet and less tart, lemon-like smell and its addition to many Thai foods and cuisine. The are many benefits of consuming lemongrass. Lemongrass can be very detoxing and act as a diuretic. This is because it causes you to urinate more frequently which helps to removes toxins from the body. Lemongrass doesn’t stop there, the effects it can have when applied externally to the skin are surprising.
Lemongrass is an excellent deodorizer, killing bad bacteria on contact! Its fresh, lemony scent is vibrant and fights odor exceptionally well, which is why this essential oil is used in our Lemongrass + Tea tree deodorant. It is also antiseptic, so lemongrass can clean the skin and keep it fungus and infection free. It houses astringent properties, so it will help tighten pores and fight anti-aging as well.
Lemongrass essential oil or extract would be a good addition to your skincare routine. Its astringent properties make it a great ingredient in our deodorant because it allows the ability to help with excess sweating.
