Enjoy the fresh clean scent & keep bugs away with our Lemongrass Soap!
Lemongrass is one of Mike’s personal favorites. In fact, for many years he would buy Lemongrass from another soap maker, long before we started Sweet Air Soapworks back in 2011.
The scent of Lemongrass actually gives Mike memory flashbacks, back to when he was just a young boy and his grandmother was cleaning her furniture with Lemon Pledge, which just goes to show that the connection between the sense of smell & memories is very strong.
The scent of Lemongrass is so incredibly fresh and clean that its oil is known for its invigorating and cleansing properties. It’s typically used in facial toners as its astringent properties may assist in reducing the look of oily or greasy skin.
Its uplifting aroma is reputed to tone and fortify the nervous system, and may strengthen the senses while soothing muscular nerves and pain when used in the bath. In fact, the aroma can be so uplifting that it’s often considered an anti-depressant.
BONUS: Lemongrass is also a highly effective natural insect repellent! Part of the Citronella family, it’s well known to repel mosquitos & other nasty little bugs.
Our Lemongrass Essential Oil is sourced from India, and has strong, but fresh and earthy aroma with a nice strong lemony tone.
Enjoy the uplifting aroma of Lemongrass & be bug free!
NOTE: Lemongrass Essential Oil has phototoxic properties (sensitivity to sunlight) so avoid prolonged exposure to the sun after using. In other words, don’t use before you go to the beach or if you’re going to be out in the sun for an extended length of time. Of course, if you’re going to be out in the sun for any length of time you should be using sunscreen, but still…
Lemongrass may also cause skin irritation in some people so test on your skin prior to bathing.
