A few drops of Lemongrass and Cedarwood in an oil burner will help keep insects away during the summer months.
Lemongrass is produced from two totally distinct botanical species of Cymbopogon. Citratus is found only under cultivation, particularly in Guatemala. Despite early origins in Sri Lanka and India, it is sometimes confusingly referred to as West Indian Lemongrass. The other type is Cymbopogon Flexuosus which is only cultivated in relatively limited areas of India. Particularly Kerala.Did you know?
Most of the grass after distillation is used locally to feed cattle.Specific Safety Advice:
Lemongrass should be used in moderation by those with sensitive skin.
