Natural Beauty Secrets of Organic Lemongrass Oil- Part I

What do you know about Organic Lemongrass (Citronelle), or Melissa, natural, organic skin care? It is an herb easily recognized by its tall fronds of leaves and strong lemon-citrusy aroma. The plant is native to Sri Lanka and India and has been popular throughout history for use in healing skin care preparations.   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.  It 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. 

This healing essential oil from nature's bounty is loaded with unique antimicrobial, antibacterial /antiseptic, anti-fungal qualities that make it a very effective astringent.   Facial skin toners, cleansers and soaps containing organic lemongrass oil do a great job of firming and tightening the skin.  When used as an astringent/toner, it is very effective in minimizing skin pores.  It is also known to increase the protective barrier of hard tissue under the skin that guards against daily free radical exposure- which is exactly what you want when you're looking for an effective Anti-aging ingredient!
