Lemongrass has a penetrating lemony herbaceous scent and has a very soothing effect on the emotions. Lemongrass is a good essential oil to use when emotionally or physically lethargic or when needing help focusing. It can help increase circulation and is naturally astringent, making it a good skin and muscle toner that can also help improve elasticity and reduce muscular pain. Lemongrass helps boost the immune system and can help fight fevers and infections. Both the plant and the essential oil have been used for centuries to deter insects as well as to ease symptoms of indigestion. It is a deodorant that can be added to soaps, detergents, and air fresheners.
