Lemongrass essential oil is collected by steam distillation of fresh, as well as partially dried grass.
It is believed to help blood circulation, indigestion, muscular pains and fever. In traditional Indian medicine, this oil has a long history of use against infectious illnesses. More often it is used as a diffuser because of its sweet, lemony aroma which is excellent to ward off unpleasant smells.
Use: It is non-toxic, but should be used in moderation after dilution.
