Product Overview

Our wildcrafted Lemongrass essential oil from Nepal has a fresh, strong, citrus-like, and herbaceous-grassy aroma with a delicate but distinct sweetness. Lemongrass oil is broadly useful in aromatherapy and, beloved for its refreshing and calming lemony scent, is one of the world's best-selling essential oils. Although partial wilting and chopping the lemongrass leaves prior to distillation significantly increases yield, some feel a finer aroma comes from distilling only the freshly harvested grass.[1]

East Indian Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus), also called Cochin grass or Malabar grass, is native to Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, India, Sri Lanka, Burma, and Thailand, while West Indian Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is native to South Asia and Maritime Southeast Asia. While both can be used interchangeably, C. flexuosus has higher solubility in alcohol[1] and is therefore largely used in the perfume industry.  Lemongrass essential oil is the quintessential air freshener, making it a popular addition to diffusers and room sprays, but also finds use in aromatic rubs and massage oils.

This one is fine, but the Organic one is better

Rating

The Wild Lemongrass is quite agrestic--similar to a piece of dried lemongrass.The Organic Lemongrass (at least in previous batches) has a bit more brightness to it--like a true, fresh stalk of lemongrass. I prefer the Organic.

Lemongrass made me happy

Rating

Lemongrass has smell of Lemon, but not the same. Lemon makes you feel refreshed, but Lemongrass takes pain away from you. When I go to shower, I will put Lemongrass into the warm water, then my bathroom will full of the smell of Lemongrass. The smell of Lemongrass will make me happy, refreshed and energetic.
