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).

If happiness had a smell it would be this and gets rid of ringworms in 2 days amazing stuff
02/03/2021, By Shana
This is strong and long lasting in my diffuser. 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 Faaria
Stunning quality, and what an uplifting scent! Great at pest control too
19/01/2021, By Taryn

I have been using this to keep my kitchen bin smelling good, just add a few drops to a cotton ball when you put in a new liner- works really well.
12/01/2021, By Sereesha
I loved this scent and brand. A few drops mixed some water works best. If used as is then I suggest just 1 drop for atleast 3 hour burn.

Lovely uplifting smell. Use it all over the house :-)
04/10/2020, By Sherele
Strong fresh and invigorating smell! However I bought a whole bunch of oils together and found that these less expensive oils (lemon, sweet orange, lemongrass) were not as full as the pricier oils (Ylang Ylang, patchouli).
28/09/2020, By Megan
Love the smell just wish it came in a bigger bottle
20/09/2020, By Flits
Lovely scent of this essential oil
16/09/2020, By Zhea
Not measuring up to other oils that I have ordered. Not exactly the smell that it was supposed to be. Smells less pure than expected.

This is oil is simply amazing. It has a fresh lemon fragrance that has a soothing effect.
25/10/2019, By Chelle
This is a lovely concentrated oil. Love it !! Leaves my home with a beautiful, soft, clean, fresh aroma.
23/10/2019, By Riana
Bought 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 Carmen
Love 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 Sam
I use this in the diffuser and it makes the whole house smell clean and fresh.
26/08/2019, By Natalie
Very uplifting scent. You only need very little so the bottle lasts a very long time.
16/08/2019, By Gerda
Ek maak my eie lugverfrisser met hierdie olie. Dit ruik baie lekker.
23/07/2019, By Kirsten
Very potent smell, particularly sweet and strong smelling in the diffuser.
12/07/2019, By Carla
Love the fresh smell. Nice to clean with
09/07/2019, By Amori
A little goes a long way. I add it to my Castile soap for fragrance.
05/07/2019, By Tina
Not a fan of the smell. 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 Jenna
Use this for everything. Added to candles, bedding, cleaning products. Nice refreshing scent
06/06/2019, By KK
Used 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 Stace
Amazing! One of my favorites for EVERYTHING. Love to burn this oil over some himilaayan rock salt in my oil burner, such a happy smell!
27/05/2019, By Alison

My fav smell
15/05/2019, By Nalini K
One of the best essential oils on the market. I use it in a ceramic burner because of its amazing fragrance. I also add a few drops to a heavenly body scrub made with sugar and extra virgin olive oil.
06/05/2019, By Catherine
We buy this product regular and add a dash when mopping the floors at home - smells amazing!
17/04/2019, By Caroline
This oil is perfect for keeping the bugs.
22/03/2019, By Catherine
Smells wonderful!
16/03/2019, By Jacqui
Lovely product of the highest quality! Fresh and relaxing smell. I added 12 drops of this essential oil to a bit of coconut oil and rubbed it on my chest - great as a decongestant and also to relieve stress and anxiety. Excellent product and great price.
04/02/2019, By Jen
Lovely Fresh smell
26/01/2019, By Nicolette
I’ve been using essential oils for a while now. It’s pure, has a gorgeous scent and is calming on the nervous system. Have been going as natural as possible in all areas of my life. There’s no going back!
23/01/2019, By Marzanne
Calming, keeps the mozzies away ;) I also make a spray with water, vodka and lemongrass to spray on linen - both for smell and to keep pests away. 10/10

Combined it with coconut oil- apart from its wonderful smell it works great as an insect repellent
03/09/2018, By Freak of Nature
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.
02/08/2018, By Nicolette
Awesome product. Long lasting. Fragrant. Uplifts mood. I love this product. Everything about it is great! A must have in my home.

One of my favourite oils. I use it often in my burner, bath and in my massage oils
14/01/2018, By kira91
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.
16/12/2017, By Cor
Just love the uplifting benefits it has on you mind body soul it’s really a amazing product and I surely would recommend using more of the amazing products by Soil! And it’s organic

The best smell
15/09/2017, By Gerda
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.
14/09/2017, By Becks
Love the smell- it is so fresh and uplifting. I cannot wait to use this in my Oil Burner.
11/09/2017, By Char
Lovely fragrant smell. Awesome product.
05/09/2017, By Tanya
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!!!
01/09/2017, By Mimi
I add this to my unscented shower gel and it take it to another level!
31/08/2017, By Anel
LOVE this scent!!! Reminds me of Thailand! :)
24/07/2017, By Zaaheda
Making my own air freshener using this oil and adding lavender by far out beats any chemical spray.
03/07/2017, By Gwen
Great to use in homemade deodorants. Smell is so pleasant.
30/05/2017, By Janine
Great fresh scent and love this in masks and deodorants.
05/02/2017, By Viana
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.)
26/01/2016, By ashleigh
The smell is powerful and really uplifting.
18/11/2015, By Angeline
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!
10/06/2015, By Tammy
Has a fresh smell, I mix a few drops in normal body cream and use it as a mosquito repellent. Works like a dream.
29/01/2015, By Beulah
A very useful oil to have on hand
