Dosage and Preparation
When combined with a carrier oil (such as jojoba, sweet almond, or avocado oil), lemongrass essential oil can be applied directly to the skin or added to baths in small amounts.
The dilution rate should be no lower than one part essential oil to four parts of carrier oil.
Undiluted lemongrass essential oil can be inhaled after sprinkling a drop of the oil onto a cloth or tissue, or by using an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer.
Diffused Aromatically: Drop 5-8 drops in a diffuser burner or vaporizer.
* Never apply essential oils directly to your skin.
* Essential oil should not be taken internally & stored out of reach of children.
* Essential oils may cause skin irritation or an allergic reaction in some individuals. If you experience nausea, vomiting, or a headache after using lavender, discontinue use immediately.
*Essential oils should be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin and shouldn’t be applied to the eyes or mucous membranes or used excessively (the oil is absorbed through skin and toxicity can occur if too much is applied).
*A skin patch test is recommended prior to using any new essential oil.
• Wash your forearm with mild, unscented soap, then pat the area dry
• Apply a few drops of the diluted essential oil to a small patch of skin on your forearm
• Cover the area with a bandage, then wait 24 hours
• If you notice any signs of discomfort within the 24 hours, such as redness, blistering, or irritation, remove the bandage and wash your skin with mild soap and water. But if you don’t experience any discomfort after 24 hours, the diluted essential oil is likely safe for use.
