Do spa and massage practice clients love lemons? Treat them to Lemongrass Oil.
By Jean Shea on Aug 11, 2016
If your clients love the smell of lemons, they will love Lemongrass Oil. Extracted by steam distillation from the Lemongrass, a tall perennial plant that is native to India and Southeast Asian countries, Lemongrass Oil has a light, fresh and lemony scent. It’s used in beverages and teas as a flavoring agent and in cosmetics and soaps for its fragrance.
The health benefits of Lemongrass Oil are extensive and are attributed to its beneficial properties as an analgesic, antidepressant, diuretic, sedative and tonic substance, to name just a few. Used in aromatherapy, Lemongrass Oil helps to relieve muscle pain and body aches.
Lemongrass Oil also has many skin healing and smoothing benefits. The essential oil has antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties to keep skin healthy by reducing bacterial growth. It helps to cleanse and tone the skin to make it even and glowing.
