Our organically crafted Lemongrass Hydrosol is steam distilled from the rich, spicy green grasses of the Cymbopogon citratus plant cultivated in the rural countryside of India. The hydrosol has a lively, bright, uplifting, refreshing green-lemony aroma which makes it one of the best hydrosols for aromatherapy.

A tall, perennial plant, Lemongrass has a subtle citrus flavor and is used in Asian cuisine in soups, teas, and curries as well as with fish, poultry, beef, and seafood. The uplifting yet calming smell can give the environment a much more welcoming atmosphere, and its astringent properties makes it useful in all kinds of skin care products too, from facial toners and creams to lotions and body wash.
