Organic Skin Care with Healing Lemongrass Essential Oil
Organic Lemongrass (Citronelle), or Melissa, is an herb easily recognized by its tall fronds of leaves and strong lemon-citrusy aroma and is native to Sri Lanka and India. Applying this healing botanical to the skin can help alleviate common skin disorders, such as bacterial infections and even large pores. In addition, organic lemongrass is commonly used an excellent mosquito repellent.
Naturally occurring anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties in organic Lemongrass help to discourage bacterial or microbial growth on the skin. The essential oil reduces the number of skin infections, as well as alleviates skin irritations, like folliculitis and cellulitis, that are caused by bacterial infections. Lemongrass oil is also fungicidal, -it clears fungus infections on the skin.
