Note: It should not be used by those with sensitive skins as it can cause irritations in some individuals.

Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.

  • Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
  • Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
  • Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
  • Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.

Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

First time buying lemongrass essential oil. I combined a few drops of this with lemon essential oil (using coconut oil as a base). Produced a lovely fresh-smelling cream that does not irritate my skin and it repels mozzies.

Using it to ward off mosquitos at night. Just mix with another a carrier oil and slap it onto your bod. Sleeping better at night. Also a cheaper option than most repellents you'll find on the market.

Ek maak die wonderlikste lugverfrisser met hierdie olie. Lieflike geur. Neem 'n spuitbottel van jou keuse. Vul 1/3 met rubbing alcohol. Voeg druppels van die olie by volgense jou keuse. Skud goed en laat staan vir so tien minute. Vul houer verder met gesuiwerde water en skud weer goed. Skud voor elke gebruik.

Lovely fragrant smell. Awesome product.

My absolute favourite essential oil to diffuse in our home! Fresh, zesty and lively! Whenever I'm feeling lethargic and tired, I burn this essential oil, and it definitely livens me up!
I also mix a few drops with water in a spay bottle, and use it as an air freshener, a million times better than anything I have ever used before! So much better than those toxic air fresheners you buy in store.
I'm never without a bottle!!!

I add this to my unscented shower gel and it take it to another level!

Making my own air freshener using this oil and adding lavender by far out beats any chemical spray.

Great to use in homemade deodorants. Smell is so pleasant.

Great fresh scent and love this in masks and deodorants.

I mix it with coconut oil and also add a few drops of peppermint essential oil and use it on my throat (thyroid) and I also massage my feet with it. It also seems to keep mozzies away.
Smells great (MUCH better than citronella if you want to use it as an insect repellent.)

The smell is powerful and really uplifting.

Love using this in my washing in the rinse cycle
02/11/2015, By Chantal
This is a wonderful versatile oil to have in any home. I mix it with rosemary and diffuse to keep mozzies away. Also safe to mix with a carrier oil or lotion to use as an insect repellent, none of the nasies that commercially bought products has!

Has a fresh smell, I mix a few drops in normal body cream and use it as a mosquito repellent. Works like a dream.

A very useful oil to have on hand
