Lemongrass Essential Oil + DMSO Uses and Benefits

Grown in Southern India, lemongrass produces a smoky, citrus essential oil that offers a variety of benefits. Lemongrass has long been used in Asian cuisine, but its uses go much farther beyond the kitchen.

The chemical makeup of Lemongrass essential oil includes geranial and neral components, which are aldehydes. Aldehydes have many functions within essential oils, including the ability to cleanse surfaces and lessen feelings of stress. Essential oils with geranial and neral are particularly known for helping to maintain healthy gastrointestinal function.

The health benefits of lemongrass oil can be attributed to its properties as an analgesic (reduces pain and inflammation), antidepressant, antimicrobial (inhibits bacterial growth in the body), antipyretic (can bring down fevers), antiseptic (helps keep external or internal cuts and wounds from becoming septic), astringent (helps prevent teeth from falling out, hair loss, and helps blood to clot), bactericidal, carminative (relieves flatulence), deodorant, diuretic, febrifuge, galactagogue, insecticidal (repels insects), nervine (calms nerves), sedative, and a tonic substance (boosts health).

In addition, Lemongrass essential oil can offer purifying benefits for the skin, minimize and cleanse pores, reduce body aches, promote a positive mood, and support healthy digestion.
