Lemongrass Essential Oil: 2 Benefits and Uses

Lemongrass Essential Oil Benefits, uses and recipes



I love lemongrass essential oil! It is my preferred scent around the house. To me, the smell is like taking in a deep breath of fresh air, and it makes me happy!

So, my top 2 benefits to have lemongrass essential oil in your home:

  1. It smells WONDERFUL!

When you get a whiff of it, it instantly wakes you up. It has a light, bright and crisp scent. Lemongrass is a great essential oil to use in the dark of winter when you are yearning for Spring!

  1. It repels mosquitoes.


And here are my top 2 ways to use lemongrass around the house:

1 Make your own lemongrass room spray.

You’ll need:

  • Spray bottle
  • 2 tablespoons of vodka or witch hazel
  •  6-8 drops of lemongrass
  • Distilled water

Pour vodka/witch hazel and lemongrass into the bottle and top off the bottle with distilled water. Shake well before each use. Use often to bring a smile to your face!

Make your own bug spray.

You’ll need:

  • Spray bottle
  • Distilled water
  • 10-12 drops of lemongrass

Add lemongrass to the bottle and top off with distilled water. Spray liberally all over your body before going outside. You can also add lavender essential oil for extra protection (and a more yummy smell!).
