Lemongrass essential oil: love it!

The smell of lemongrass essential oil instantly gives me a sense of calm as I associate it with spa treats I’ve had in the past. Great to add a few drops with water to my diffuser at home either in its own or with ginger and lemon. Also good to relax the muscles so a few drops can be added to the bath. I always add a few drops of base oil with it if I’m worried about skin sensitivity.

Fresh , clean fragrance.

I was recommended lemon grass for rheumatoid arthritis. I absolutely love massaging my joints with this luxurious oil . A couple of drops with macerated arnica and it works a dream . I’ve started adding it into my diffuser for added benefit and my home smells glorious. This oil makes self care easy !

Beautiful natural scent

Love this oil. Use it in my aromatherapy diffuser at yoga classes and to freshen the house.

Uplifting and gentle

Great with a few drops of peppermint. Really refreshing oil

My favourite

My favourite. I love this scent. Not too strong and not too sweet but just lovely citrus scent. I used this in the bathrooms and is always smelling lovely. I occasionally add some drops to a citrus melting wax and place it in my warmer. The entire house is scented.

Fresh and zingy

Has a lovely fresh and zingy smell. My parents kept asking what the lovely smell was when they came around so I bought them some too.

Hubby's Favourite!

This is my husband's favourite! It's refreshing and cleansing. I would definitely recommend it. It a fresh and slightly lemony scent but not too overpowering. N.Y hasn't let me down
