Lemongrass essential oilJuly 05 2018
The salutary benefits of essential oils are well known; at flo we create fragrances that evoke the senses, allowing you to enjoy the aromatherapeutic properties of essential oils in our candles, reed diffusers and room mists.
Over the coming weeks we will highlight the unique properties of some of the oils we enjoy using in our blends. Now summer has finally arrived, Lemongrass is perfect for adding some zing to those long, hazy days, and it can even help to keep those pesky insects at bay.
Lemongrass is a herb from the Poaceae grass family and it will not surprise you that it smells like lemons - but has a sweeter, milder aroma.
Lemongrass is a incredibly versatile essential oil, known among aromatherapists to be soothing, stimulating and refreshing, it has the ability to both calm and revitalize, to relieve tension and invigorate. Lemongrass is also known to help with insomnia and just a small spritz on your pillow or a well placed diffuser is a great alternative to counting sheep!
Lemongrass is integral to our Zest blend, combined with, amongst others refreshing lime and grapefruit.
