Benefits of Lemongrass Essential Oil
Research conducted in 2010 concluded that Lemongrass essential oil was effective against a variety of drug resistant bacteria, including those that cause skin infections, pneumonia, blood infections and serious intestinal infections
This oil is also known to be effective against four types of funghi, one of which causes athletes foot, ringworm and 'jock itch' (hopefully not at the same time!) - when used topically in dilutions of at least 2.5%
Lemongrass EO also contains a chemical called Citral, which is known to be an effective anti inflammatory - in 2017 a study was conducted on patients with rheumatoid arthiritis, on average within a period of 30 days, pain levels were reported to decrease from 80% to 50%.
Not to mention, the smell is beautifully zingy and fresh.
