Common Uses: Lemongrass Essential Oil is known for its invigorating and cleansing properties.

I could be the poster child for the importance of dilution when it comes to lemongrass EO. I started using it years ago with my massage therapy practise and adored the scent, as did my clients. I would apply it diluted in their massage therapy oil, but I was guilty of placing undiluted drops of it in my left hand before I added the oil. Unfortunately, I developed a hypersensitivity to it. It is the only essential oil I absolutely cannot use now. I break into a rash immediately. Lesson learned the hard way. It's an amazing EO, but please be cautious.

This is a slightly more earthy lemongrass smell and can be a little overpowering with it's high note. When blended with other "green" EO, it's heavenly!

Personally found the smell of this oil to hit me the wrong way. I don't believe there is anything wrong with the oil, just not my smell. I wanted more of a lemon smell, but i guess it has more of the grass scent.

I love lemongrass, but this one is just OK. It is a little sweet or something which seems off for me. It has been highly effective in killing germs when diffused in my nebulizer though. 5 stars for therapeutic value, 3 stars for smell. The organic lemongrass smells one star better, but I prefer other brands.

Lemongrass is one of those staples you have to have in your scent collection. Use it in a blend when you need a strong citrus base or one its own.

Lemongrass essential oil is my favorite for spot-checks. If you apply it undiluted to a questionable skin spot and it starts to burn, just dilute it with a your favorite carrier oil. On the other hand, I found through experience that if the spot starts to develope an powerful itching sensation, you're treating melanoma. I personally use pure oregano oil to chemically scratch the itch. This one has an excellent price, but NDA doesn't specify if this lemongrass comes from east or west India. There isn't much aromatic difference between the two, but the theraputic differences are vast. Lemongrass from west India will treat problems at the surface level, while East Indian lemongrass will effect you at the source and provide direct organ support.

I don't think this smells like real lemongrass. I used to have a bush of it in my backyard. There is just something different about this fragrance. It seems deeper, darker and not as sweet as actual lemongrass. That being said. It smells pretty great when mixed in my butters.

It's exactly how it should smell. Lemongrass at its best!! I use it in my shampoo and conditioner this time of year. Live in the woods and this with a few other EO's help to fend off the flying pests. I also use in my dog shampoo to help them with the annoying pests. I also use in candles for outside.

This is my favourite lemongrass E.O. The scent is dry, light, floral, citrus, and crisp. There is absolutely no ttrace of the citronella undertones I usually find in other lemongrass E.O.s. Blends well, hitting the high notes but without domination. Fantastic.

I use Lemongrass essential oil to perfume my Seaweed soap (about 3 Oz of it for a 5 pounds batch of soap) and the smell it very invigorating.

I use this EO in shampoo, conditioner and in body lotion. It is a wonderful scent and a little goes a long long way. This EO mixed with lavender EO is now my signature scent in my store Beadle. Customers love it and it helps me sell the oils and scent balls. Only one word of caution you will want to buy a large bottle because it is highly addictive. _3
