Notify me when this product is available:

Common Name: Lemongrass Essential Oil

Latin Name: Cymbopogon flexuosus

Aroma:  As the name suggests, it does have a lemony scent, but it also has some wonderful herbal and round persistent notes that almost persuade you to keep smelling it. I makes for a wonderful top or middle not in blends and does not require much because of its persistent aroma.

Blends with: Basil, Bergamot, Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Cypress, Geranium, Ginger, Grapefruit, Alligator Juniper, Lavender, Lime, Sweet Marjoram, Sweet Orange, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Scotch Pine, Rosemary ct cineole, Tea Tree, Virginia Cedarwood, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang.

Energetic qualities:Uplifts mood while relaxing, refreshes and offers emotional protection, eases difficult emotional transitions, reduces fatigue & energizes 

Recommended applications: Topical application using safe dilution ratios.

    Aromatherapist notes: I love using this in uplifting blends and in soap making. It adds just the right amount of "umph" without requiring much. While many love using it in insect repellent blends, I urge caution as it can and does attract bees.

    Extraction Method: Steam distillation grass

    Shelf Life: About 3-4 years

    Country of Origin: India, Organic.

    GC/MS Batch:

    Safety Data: May cause irritation to skin and mucous membranes, best to use in low doses. Avoid using on individuals with sensitive or damaged skin. May be sensitizing. Robert Tisserand suggests that the oil not be used with children under two years old. Restrict use during pregnancy and breast feeding to maximum 0.7%.

    Other considerations:

    • The recommended maximum dermal use is 0.7% to avoid any irritation or increase risk of sensitization.
    • Lemongrass essential oil is high in aldehydes and can be irritating to mucous membrane tissues. Therefore, it is recommended for diffusion, steam inhalation, or inhalers in very low percentages.
    • Other dermal cautions include use on individuals that have hypersensitive, diseased or damaged skin, as well as on children under 2.
    • Use with caution in oral formulations with diabetes medications and pregnancy.
    • In any and all routes, caution should be used for those that are taking medications metabolized by CYP2B6.
    • Do not place on broken skin.
