How to use Lemongrass essential oil


1 Diffusion: Diffusing Lemongrass essential oil is the best way to take advantage of most of its actions. By diluting about 15 drops in the water of the diffuser you can benefit from the repellent action against mosquitoes, eliminate bad smells from the rooms, but also relieve nervous tension accumulated during the day thanks to the relaxing properties on the nervous system and breathe better thanks to the antibacterial and balsamic action.

2 InhalationsIn case of sinusitis, colds, headaches, boil a pot of hot water. Then add 5 drops of lemongrass, 5 of pine essential oil, 5 of lavender and 5 of eucalyptus. Breathe in the vapors for about a quarter of an hour, placing a towel on your head on top of the pot to retain as much steam as possible.

3 MassagesLemongrass essential oil can be used to prepare massage oils or ointments to be used in case of muscle contractures, joint pain, sinusitis and colds. Lemongrass is one of the ingredients used to prepare a balsamic ointment similar to tiger balm, which is used in case of sinusitis, colds, difficulty in breathing well and muscle aches. This ointment can be massaged directly on the area to be treated, for example on the chest in case of respiratory problems, on the temples to solve the headache or on the neck if we suffer from cervical. Procedure: mix 40 grams of shea butter and 10 grams of sweet almond oil, helping you with a spatula to mix the two ingredients well. Add 5 drops of lemongrass, 5 of lavender, 5 of eucalyptus, 5 of rosemary and 3 drops of tea tree. Mix well and store in a clean, dry jar away from heat and direct light. Consume the product within three months of preparation.

4 For petsPet owners can prevent flea infestations by applying a couple of drops of lemongrass essential oil directly to their dog's or cat's collar. Applications must be renewed frequently because essential oils are volatile and their effect is limited in time: therefore repeat the operation a couple of times a week. Lemongrass essential oil can also be poured on kennels, cushions and in places where pets usually sleep; three drops are enough for each kennel. It is also possible to add a couple of drops of lemongrass essential oil to each tablespoon of detergent used for the dog's bath: its essence will also have a deodorizing effect on the animal's fur, as well as repellent towards fleas.

5 For cleaningTo disinfect and deodorize the bathroom and kitchen, prepare a spray bottle with 250 milliliters of food-grade alcohol in which to disperse 40 drops of lemongrass essential oil, 20 drops of lemon essential oil, 10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil and 5 drops of tea tree essential oil. Shake and here is a ready-to-use natural cleaning product for sanitary ware, taps, tiles and other washable surfaces.
