Lemongrass Oil

Cymbopogon flexuosus

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 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.

Benefits and uses

The spicy green grasses of the Cymbopogon flexuosus plant create an herbaceous, lemony essential oil. In addition to helping reduce unwanted bacteria, microbes, or fungus, lemongrass essential oil is also known to help manage minor pain and inflammation, work to ease situational depression, and help support healthy digestion.

Emotionally and energetically, lemongrass essential oil can invite comfort during difficult emotional transitions. It also uplifts and relaxes, assisting in both reducing fatigue and energizing the mind.

Safety & Warnings
    • May irritate skin and mucous membranes, use at 0.7% maximum. May be skin sensitizing (try using oils high in d-limonene or alpha-pinene to help). Use caution for young children. Tisserand suggests the use of citral be restricted to 0.5% maximum on the skin during pregnancy. Oils containing citral should be avoided with antidepressants (specifically Bupropion) that inhibits CYP2B6 enzyme. Tisserand states that this risk is considered "theoretical" based on the research.
    • Oils high in Citral are known to be a mucous membrane irritant.
    • Aldehydes are sensitive to oxidation and for this reason and can be stored in a refrigerator for the longest possible shelf life.
