Benefits of lemongrass essential oil

Few essential oils possess a more potent anti-fungal action than lemongrass, making it ideal for athlete’s foot and candida, and the high levels of a component in the oil called citral mean it is also a powerful antiseptic.
When 12 antiviral essential oils were tested in vitro against Herpes simplex (HSV-1) at the Department of Microbiology in Japan, lemongrass essential oil (C. citratus) demonstrated the strongest antiviral activity of them all with complete inhibition at a concentration of only 0.1%.
This result revealed lemongrass oil to be 10 times more effective than even tea tree, ravensara, peppermint or eucalyptus oils, which all needed a concentration of 1.0% to achieve the same result. However, don’t use lemongrass essential oil undiluted on the skin because it may cause mild skin sensitization or irritation.
Lemongrass is a middle note that adds punch and lift to most aromatherapy blends, and mixes very nicely with basil, bergamot, cedar atlas and Virginian, clary sage, frankincense, geranium, jasmine, juniper berry, lavender, neroli, palmarosa, patchouli, rose, rosemary, sandalwood, tea tree, vanilla and vetiver.
