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).

However there is a sharpness to this that I don't ever find with fresh lemongrass but I have experienced this with synthetic scents containing lemongrass. I suppose I am more sensitive to sharpness with lemongrass, something to be aware of if you are like me.28/02/2021, By FaariaStunning quality, and what an uplifting scent!

Love the smell07/11/2019, By ChevonneMy favourite oil.04/11/2019, By LesleyLove the smell30/10/2019, By FrankThis is oil is simply amazing. It has a fresh lemon fragrance that has a soothing effect.25/10/2019, By ChelleThis is a lovely concentrated oil. Love it !! Leaves my home with a beautiful, soft, clean, fresh aroma.23/10/2019, By RianaBought this quite some time ago. Fresh and potent! But I made the mistake of inhaling this fresh aroma straight from the bottle, taking a deep breath. It was too strong, and I experienced a burning feeling in my nasal passages. Immediately rinsed with water, fearing that I've injured my mucous membranes. After a while the discomfort slowly started to diminish, and all seemed well. Now I still inhale it occasionally, but do it slowly, so it's not so concentrated. In a diffuser it works well.25/09/2019, By CarmenLove using this essential oil in a burner. The room gets filled with such a pleasant scent that's very uplifting. A little goes a long way as Soil essential oils are potent.28/08/2019, By SamI use this in the diffuser and it makes the whole house smell clean and fresh.26/08/2019, By NatalieVery uplifting scent.

Not a fault of anyone but me, I thought it would smell more like lemon than grass. To be honest it smelled like Thai food. This is a mistake I made and did not think through. It would be great in household cleaning products NOT recommended to use on your body in creams and balms.03/07/2019, By JennaUse this for everything. Added to candles, bedding, cleaning products. Nice refreshing scent06/06/2019, By KKUsed this in combination with tea tree oil to fend off ants and insects in my home. Worked very well and safe for my puppies as well.30/05/2019, By StaceAmazing!
