Lemongrass oil has a light, fresh aroma with unmistakably earthy undertones and it has long been a popular choice for aromatherapy. If you’re keen to make your own cosmetics and haircare treatments, a few drops of organic lemongrass oil from Freshskin Beauty added to any preparation will guarantee a citrusy burst to liven up your day.
As a natural deodoriser it is in a class of its own – a little lemongrass oil added to water makes a great room spray or it works just as well in an oil diffuser. Or customise your own fragrance by blending with other essential oils – lavendfer or peppermint work particularly well.
