A potent purifying essential oil with a refreshing lemony, herbal aroma! Lemongrass oil contains high quantities of geranial and neral—together known as “citral.” Citral makes lemongrass a powerful choice for cleaning the whole house. Use it for areas where germs and fungi like to gather, such as the shower stall. While lemongrass’s aroma is calming, citral can irritate the skin, so dilute this oil well for topical blends. Our wildcrafted lemongrass essential oil is steam distilled from fields of rich, green grasses cultivated in the rural countryside of Nepal or India.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
