Lemongrass | 101



I’ve been holding back my feelings for some time, but I can’t stay silent any longer. I must tell you…I love Lemongrass! Its enticing aroma, exotic origins, and relaxing presence all make me fall more deeply each day.

Elizabeth Barret Browning once penned, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” She gave Robert Browning eight beautiful and endearing reasons why she loved him, but I adore Lemongrass so much, I’ll give you 9.

1. Heritage

Lemongrass thrive in warm, humid, and exciting places, and so do I. That’s why we make such a great pair. It reminds me of my graduation trip to the Bahamas, where the sights, smells, and sounds gave me a sense of wonder every day. It allows me to experience those same feelings no matter where I am.

2. Scent

I can’t get enough of its exhilarating aroma. When I add Lemongrass in my diffuser or spritz all over my linens, it lingers long after. Lemongrass unique scent is like nothing else—sweet and citrusy with a subtle hint of earthy undertones.

It’s also one of the main components of our favorite Fruity Pebbles diffuser blend:

  • 2 drops Lemongrass
  • 2 drops Bergamot
  • 2 drops Grapefruit

3. Presence

Even after the most hectic day, Lemongrass has the astonishing ability to help me calm down. When I catch a trace of its inspiring aroma during my deep breathing exercises, I feel more relaxed than I have in hours. Its companionship during my daily meditation helps bring me calm and clarity.

4. Teamwork

Not only do I love Lemongrass, but so many others do, too! En-R-Gee™, Ortho Ease® Massage Oil, and Ortho Sport® Massage Oil just wouldn’t be the same without it.

5. Never-ending support

Lemongrass helps me remember my goals to use fewer harsh chemicals in my cleaning products and look for more plant-based solutions. Here’s my favorite ways Lemongrass helps freshen up the house:

Add 10 drops to a glass spray bottle.

Combine with water.

Spritz to freshen carpets and furniture.


6. Cleanliness

With its bright and refreshing scent, you really inspire a positive outlook, and I finally enjoy cleaning! After turning on some catchy music, I get so much done when I add 3–4 drops to a sink full of dishes, a load of laundry, or my all-purpose cleaner.

7. Charisma

I hate when I’m keyed up after a workout. A personal post-sweat session massage is my favorite thing, but it’s only because of Lemongrass’ relaxing smell. When I add it to V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex, its crisp citrus and earthy notes are the best after a grueling hour at the gym.

8. Glow

I have to say—I might love Lemongrass most for its skin-cleansing benefits. I feel more confident than ever since I started adding it to my nightly skin care regimen. I get more compliments now than ever, and I don’t know if it’s because of my appearance or the happiness Lemongrass brings into my life. Probably both!

Ps. Did you know you can use LEMONGRASS as natural NAIL POLISH REMOVER!?! For this beauty hack, all you need is 3 drops of Lemongrass oil for each hand to remove your polish.

9. Taste

Not only does Lemongrass smell amazing, but when I use it in my tea, life can’t get much better. It adds a light, complex flavor that makes for a perfect way to end the night while I unwind with a book.
