Love Me Some Lemongrass

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 reasons to have lemongrass essential oil in your home:

  1. It smells WONDERFUL!
  2. It repels mosquitos.

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

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!).

Enjoy your lemongrass journey!

And PS – For some, the smell of lemongrass is a bit strong . It is literally like smelling lemon and grass at the same time. The first time I smelled it, I was taken aback a bit but have loved it ever since!
