Lemongrass essential oil is yellow in color and has a thin consistency. The scent is fresh, earthy and citrusy.
Lemongrass essential oil is one of the most underrated oils although it has been proven to kill methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and other antibiotic-resistant bacteria. It also helps with high cholesterol, balances blood sugar and calms anxiety. It accelerates healing of ligament and tendon injuries, widens blood vessels, and thus improves circulation and accelerates lymphatic flow.
When used in aromatherapy or meditation, lemongrass essential oil cleanses the mind and enhances psychic awareness. It helps to release regret and resentment while encouraging hope, courage and optimism.
