Lemongrass can be very refreshing and relaxing and is commonly used as an insect repellent. It has a fresh, clean, citrus aroma and it's oil is yellow to amber in colour. Lemongrass oil helps to revive a tired mind and is a great tonic to revitalise the body. Lemongrass is produced from two totally distinct botanical species of Cymbopogon. Citratus is found only under cultivation, particularly in Guatemala. Despite early origins in Sri Lanka and India, it is sometimes confusingly referred to as West Indian Lemongrass. The other type is Cymbopogon Flexuosus which is only cultivated in relatively limited areas of India. Particularly Kerala.

- Try adding one drop each of Lemongrass, Lavender and Geranium to a bowl of warm water and soaking tired feet for 10 minutes.
- A few drops of Lemongrass and Cedarwood in an oil burner will help keep insects away during the summer months.
