Lift Your Life With Lemongrass
Many of us will be familiar with lemongrass for its culinary uses, as it’s often used as a fragrant and flavoursome addition to Thai curries or stir-fries, but this powerful plant and the oil that can be extracted from it has many hidden health benefits which are definitely worth tapping into!
8 Reasons to Add Lemongrass to Your Life
Aromatherapy and stress release – Lemongrass oil has a fresh lemony scent, which can energise, relieve stress, anxiety and fatigue. The scent can be enjoyed through a diffuser, vaporiser or burner, so just sit back, shut your eyes and let the lemongrass oil work its magic.
Insomnia - The calming and soothing effect of lemongrass essential oil lends itself to helping with insomnia. By calming the mind and relieving anxiety, lemongrass oil can have a sedative effect, improving quality of sleep. Try a soothing cup of lemongrass tea before bed to help you drift off.
Relieving sore muscles - Lemongrass oil helps improve body tone, relieves muscle pains by making the muscle more supple and can help improve circulation.
Antiseptic - Lemongrass essential oil is a natural antiseptic and astringent, making it an all over tonic for your body, nails and hair. It can be used to relieve an itchy scalp, leaving your hair looking healthy and smelling fresh. It can also be used for treating acne and can help control oily skin.
Antifungal – Lemongrass oil can be useful in treating athlete's foot and other fungal infections.
Pain relief – can be used to relieve headaches, muscular and joint pains and menstrual cramps.
Detoxing - Because lemongrass essential oil is a natural diuretic, it can help reduce bloating by flushing out the accumulated toxic substances from the body
- Insect repellent – Not only can lemongrass repel the biting insects that plague us during the summer months, but it can also help keep your pets free from ticks and fleas.
