Lemongrass essential oil from India.  Steam distilled.

Species: Cymbopogon Flexuosus.

Lemongrass essential oil has a sweet, fresh fruity aroma with a moderate intensity. It is suitable for use in aromatherapy, massage, soaps and candles but there are safety considerations especially for practitioners and patients who show sensitivity to high-citral herbs.  One of the most practical uses for lemongrass is household health and odor control. Simply diffuse for 30 minutes up to six times a day in the room with offending odors.  It may also reduce insect activity in the room.  It is a good idea to occasionally alternate with different odor control oils.  Eucalyptus oil is a good alternate.  It is good as an anti fungal especially for cleaning. Blend vodka 95% essential oil 5% and use to clean bathtubs and tile floors.  This same dilution can be used occasionally for athlete’s foot.  Leave socks and shoes off for 24 hours after treatment.   Aromatherapy expert, Kurt Schnaubelt recommends a very diluted lemongrass for anti-inflammatory and sedative use. Aromatherapy pioneers like Jean Valnet and Rene Maurice Gattefosse recommended lemongrass naturopathic solutions.  Soap makers can combine Lemongrass with other oils to enhance aroma strength and add citrus and fruity nuances.  Since soaps typically use a fragrant ingredient at under five percent and allow curing times there should be very little sensitivity concerns using lemongrass in soap. To err on the side of caution you may wish to use lemongrass in smaller concentrations formulating these soaps with added moisturizers and alternate use of lemony soaps with woodier types.

The natural chemistry of lemongrass includes sesquiterpenes, farnesene, methyl heptenone, cineol, borneol, geraniol, linalool, zingerone and gingerol.  Typically steam distillation yields about one percent.
