Properties and uses

  • Alongside its anti-inflammatory virtue, therapists also recommend it for its antispasmodic and antiseptic properties. It can help relieve tendonitis and joint systems, sooth intestinal spasms and pelvic contractions. Internal application, dermal application and diffusion are among the modes of use of citronella. For oral consumption, for example, dilute 1 to 2 drops with 1 teaspoonful of honey and water and swallow the mix. Take the same dose 2 to 3 times a day. In case of insect bites, apply lemongrass essential oil directly to the buttons; this will keep you safe from itching and possible infection.
  • Its an ideal deodorant thanks to its antifungal quality. Lemongrass’s lemony scent actually works in covering bad odors. When diffused, it helps annihilate tobacco or cooking’s unpleasant smells. While acting against any repellent effect in a room, Java citronella essential oil works effectively in air diffusion. Simply drop a few drops into your diffuser and let it operate. Make sure you pour in new drops as much as necessary. On a daily basis, pouring 2 drops of Java citronella and 2 drops of Egyptian geranium on a pillow or the cuff of your pajama collar will keep you away from nocturnal insect bites.
  • Note that lemongrass essential oil is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women as well as children under 3 years of age, unless directed by a professional therapist.
