MAIN PROPERTIES OF THE ESSENTIAL OIL

Particularly soothing and sedative, it is one of the key essential oils for relaxation and sleep, capable of relieving anxieties, sensations of oppression and anxiety. It is also a vasodilator, and fight against cellulite and venous stasis

The leaves of lemongrass give off a strongly lemony scent when crumpled: this is the reason why lemongrass owes its other name of "indian verbena", although it has nothing to do with verbena.
