Lemongrass is a tall, aromatic, perennial, fast growing grass. Lemongrass is called the 'connective tissue essential oil', because it tightens and tones the skin and connective tissue. This makes it useful in massage and compresses after sports injuries, general strains and sprains, and after dieting when the connective tissues and skin may have lost tone and become slack.
Overall, Lemongrass essential oil is cooling, refreshing and stimulating. Lemongrass has excellent antiseptic and deodorant properties.
