Oil (Cymbopogon flexnous)
essential oil has a light, citrus aroma and is distilled from the
long slender, grass like leaves. It is said that lemongrass helps
rejuvenate the mind and has been found to improve mental clarity.
It has also been the subject of research published in the Phytotherapy
Research Journal, where it was found to have powerful properties
when applied topically to the skin, namely its anti-fungal action.

applied to the skin, some dilution may be necessary as lemongrass
has a tendency to cause what looks like a rash. It really is only
enhancing blood flow, but can be unsightly and itch.
1 part lemongrass to 4 parts V6 oil or olive oil. For oral consumption,,
start with 3 drops twice per day and increase as needed.
fractured my tibia playing tennis last week and also sprained my
ankle. Thanks to Lemongrass, Wintergreen and PanAway I'm walking
quite well with my airplane splint. I took no pain pills at all!!!!
Loving these oils!
any of you had your face start itching and then the itching goes
down the neck onto the chest? Then after the itching starts you
face turns red? The itching keeps on getting worse and worse? Well
this is what has happened to you: your lymphics are plugged This
has happened to me twice now and this is what I did. First I applied
lemongrass around the lymphic ring around the bottom of my heel.
It looks like a U. To find out where it is, stand with your foot
on the floor and imagine you are standing on a horseshoe, with the
heels of the shoe facing towards the toes. Looking straight down
from the ankle is the beginning of the horse shoe. Underneath the
heel apply lemongrass, going around to the otherside and stopping
in front of the other ankle or the end of the horse shoe. Now you
do the reflex 3 times on each foot and then do the lymphic pump.
This opens the lymphs and the itching stops and the redness goes
away. If you still have some itching do it again until it has stopped
come from a long line of hereditary varicose vein disease and at
age 33 was already displaying the infamous exaggerated 'road map'
blue cords all over my legs. Not only were they unsightly and embarrassing
for me, but also having the veins is painful and causes leg fatigue.
Fortunately I came across all the uses of Lemongrass in the Essential
Oils Desk Reference book and decided to give it a shot. At first
I applied oil directly to my legs, which caused slight irritation
and redness. Now I dilute 1 part Lemongrass with 4 parts organic
olive oil or grape seed oil. Within minutes my legs are invigorated
and the dull, achy vein pain disappears! Even better, after a couple
of months of applying diluted Lemongrass to my legs once or twice
a week, the actual veins have diminished and are but a fraction
of the sight that they used to be. I am no longer am embarrassed
to wear shorts.
the beginning of winter my knees started hurting - first one, then
the other. It got to where as I straightened up my legs at each
step when walking the knees would 'click' accompanied by the sharp
pain. Not wanting to use painkillers I tried several different oils
and supplements with no luck till I tried Lemongrass. I applied
it in the evening and could feel it working immediately! The next
day the pain and clicking was almost gone. I applied 2 - 3 times
a day for just 3 days and the symptoms completely subsided.
a couple of drops of Lemongrass oil in a spray bottle with some
water and spray air, sheets and blankets between changes (remembering
to shake bottle often). Helps with dust mites or bed bugs they say
are there but you cannot see. It feels great. I also spray sofa
cushions, area rugs, etc. Now, I don't think I have 'bed bugs' but
it sounded like a great way to freshen up linens. I've tried it
and it does smell wonderful.
stones are no fun! My husband describes it as the body trying to
push a watermelon or a jagged bolder through a garden hose only
on a much smaller visual scale, and more constant pain than he has
ever experienced! He has had, on four different occasions, the experience
of dealing with kidney stones, twice requiring an emergency room
visit or doctor office visit. This past year we were introduced
to Young Living Essential Oils and with my husband's most recent
kidney stone attack we applied oils to see if we could avoid another
expensive emergency room visit and pharmaceutical treatment. I layered
5 to 6 drops of each of Panaway, RC, Lemongrass and Juniper over
his kidney and gave him a glass of purified water with 5 to 6 drops
of lemon in it. Within ten minutes, the pain switched from on to
OFF! Just like a light switch the pain was gone! Three days later,
he passed the largest stone ever without any pain and with out any
visible blood. A week after that, again he passed another notably
sized stone without pain or visible blood. We believe Young Living
Essential Oils are responsible for my husband's quick recovery and
will continue to make major differences in our health and lives.
God is so good to bring these oils into our lives to be used!
was in an area next to my home that was being torn down and the
mosquitoes were horrible. I had shorts on and was bitten in about
3 different places. I went inside and mixed some peppermint, a little
oregano, lemongrass, eucalyptus citriadora into a massage oil and
put on the bites and within 10 minutes all bites disappeared completely.
2004, I began to use Melrose, Lemongrass, or Melaleuca Alternafolia
(depending on whatever I decided for the day) to see if I could
get rid of a fairly advanced fungal infection under four toenails
which had developed about 10 years earlier while hiking in Nepal
for three weeks in damp boots. When I started using the oils, about
2/3 of each nail on the large toes had disattached from the nail
bed. They were only slightly itchy and uncomfortable but I was concerned
about loosing the nails altogether. The good news is that the fungus
apparently stopped in it's tracks because the itchy, discomfort
stopped within the first few applications and the nails were all
normally attached with no signs of fungus in about the same amount
of time it takes a nail to replace itself under normal circumstances.
I have had no re-occurances since that time.
years I have struggled with high cholesterol. I was on Zocor for
many years at the highest dosage, still unable to get my levels
to normal. I invited Dr. Jeff Essen (Whole Life Clinic in Burnsville,
MN) to my wellness team for guidance. Under his supervision, I began
to do liver flushes about every 2-3 months. Much of my problem was
contributed to a toxic liver and very sluggish bile. I had my gallbladder
removed in 2001 With my first liver flush, I flushed out over 50
balls of bile that ranged in size of large pea- that of a brazil
nut. The balls varied in color from medium brown to bright pea green.
To support my liver with detoxification I apply JuvaFlex, Release,
Clove and Lemongrass topically on the liver and the bottom of my
right foot on the liver Vita Flex point. I also include Juvatone
and Ningxia Red as additional support for my liver. My total cholesterol
levels have decreased from 287 to 204, my triglycerides have reduced
from 197 to 93. Of course, in addition, I have made a conscious
choice to eat heathier, increase my water intake and exercise on
a regular basis to help support my liver detoxification.
experience with essential oils started like most people, with a
physical condition and pain. I began having severe neck pain which
progressed down my left shoulder and ultimately to my left elbow.
At first I just lived with it, but then I started to experience
weakness in my left tricep and that's when I decided to contact
a doctor and see what was wrong. An MRI showed the disk between
the C-6 and C-7 vertebrae to be bulging. The swelling in the joint
was putting pressure on the nerve which was causing the pain and
the weakness in my arm. In fact the tricep muscle was actually beginning
to atrophy. My doctor gave me three options, first, physical therapy
sessions. I did that with little effect. Second, an epidural in
my neck, which is an injection of anti-inflammatory drugs directly
into the disk designed to reduce the swelling and help the disk
move back in place. The third option was surgery where they would
fuse the two vertebrae together. I was in my early 30's and very
active in sports and skiing and did not want options 2 or 3! That's
when a friend told me about the oils and how they had helped him
with a similar problem with his back. Long story short, I tried
them and it was nothing short of a miracle! Within minutes my neck
and shoulder felt better and by the next morning I had no more pain!
ZERO! My neck and arm have been fine since, nearly 10 years now,
and I regularly use the oils as simple maintenance and for many
other reasons that are too numerous to list here.
people have asked me which oils were used on my back and neck, so
here is a list of the oils and how they were applied by Julie Herbert
whose husband Gordon first introduced me to these amazing medicines:
with Valor on the feet. Then
layer oils of Basil, Marjoram, Aroma Siez, Wintergreen, Panaway,
Cypress, Lemongrass, Geranium and Peppermint on the Vita-flex points
on the feet one after another. (There is a foot chart in the Essential
Oils Desk Reference, which shows where points related to the spine,
shoulders and neck are located on the feet called vita-flex points.)
Then apply the same oils on the neck and shoulder or pain-effected
area using Peppermint last, followed by Ortho Ease. Peppermint is
used last because it is the amplifier of the other oils followed
by Ortho Ease. Today for someone with the same condition you would
also use Idaho Balsam Fir and then start taking the supplements
BLM (for bone, muscle, and ligaments) and Sulfurzyme. BLM and Sulferzyme
were not available when I had my neck problem.
strained my knee going up a stair, I could barely manage to hobble,
I suffered for two days. When a friend said "did you put any
oil on?". No I hadn't, I was to busy suffering. So out of guilt
I put Lemongrass and was fine in the morning.
