Young Living Lemongrass Essential Oil - Repels mosquitoes + many health benefits
Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Flexusus) is commonly used for purification and digestion. Historically it was used for hypertention, inflammation, as a sedative, and for the treatment of fevers and digestion. Lemongrass contains similar chemical properties as Citronella, but has a brighter and more fragrant aroma. Both plants technically belong to the same family and looks almost alike. Insect and mosquitoes hate lemongrass, growing lemongrass at home or using lemongrass can keep mosquitoes away. Lemongrass is a household must have during mosquito season - especially in Singapore which is currently plagued with Dengue and Zika.
Caution: Lemongrass may cause sensitivity to some individuals, it is better to dilute the oil with a carrier oil first or added into distill water to use as a anti-mosquito spritz. If you are an expectant mother, please speak to your healthcare professional before using Lemongrass
