INCI / LATIN / TYPE: Cymbopogon citratus oil

SHELF LIFE: 5 years

EXTRACTION: Steam distillation 

PART OF PLANT: Whole leaf

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: We source our Lemongrass in South Africa, Malawi or India.

INFORMATION AND USES: Our Lemongrass oil is rich in citral (over 70%). Citral is made up of Neral and Geraniol. Lemongrass oil has anti-inflammatory activity (Boukhatem et al. 2014). Dilute Lemongrass oil into a carrier oil (below 0.5%) and rub it onto your skin. When Lemongrass oil is used in a diffuser and turned into a vapor, it has antifungal activity (Boukhatem et al. 2014). Because Lemongrass oil contains aldehydes, please use this oil sparingly. Lemongrass oil can irritate the skin and the mucous membranes if used in high concentrations. We recommend at a maximum concentration of around 0.7%-0.8%, use even less for children and during pregnancy. Add 3-4 drops of Lemongrass oil to your all-purpose house cleaner, dishes, and laundry and it will add a fresh and clean smell. 

References: Boukhatem, M.N., Ferhat, M.A., Kameli, A., Saidi, F. and Kebir, H.T. (2014) Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) essential oil as a potent anti-inflammatory and antifungal drug. Libyan Journal of Medicine 9, 25431. Available at http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/ljm.v9.25431

ODOR: Top / Middle note. Lemony/herbal. Lemongrass has high concentrations of citral, which smells very strong and so Lemongrass can dominate a blend, so only use sparingly.

STORAGE: Remember to store your Lemongrass oil in a dark container to limit light exposure. Store the Lemongrass oil at room temperature and always replace the lid to limit contact with air. Lemongrass contains oxides and therefore it oxidizes more easily than some other oils so be sure to store this oil correctly.

SAFETY DATA:  Can irritate the skin. Nontoxic. Do not ingest.

VOLUME: 10ml (approx. 0.33 fl. oz)
