Ready to detox? Lemongrass essential oil will help! Both physically, spiritually and emotionally, Lemongrass is a natural cleanser of toxicity and negativity. Think of this as your lymph system support, which is essentially the fluid that removes toxins from our bodies. This is just one of the incredible benefits Lemongrass provides.

Lemongrass is native to Asia, as it thrives in warm, sunny, and humid climates. It's used in Asian cuisine for soups, teas, curries, and seafood. I add lemongrass essential oil in any recipe that calls for it, especially because the grocery stores near me don't carry the fresh plant! doTERRA sources its' Lemongrass in Southern India, where it's grown by family farmers. I love the video of the farming process with the children that help out, check it out at then bottom of this blog! You can also learn more about Lemongrass origins here.

Lemongrass is even used in the pharmaceutical industry for the synthesis of Vitamin A! It supports a healthy thyroid, digestion, bladder, kidney, tendons, cholesterol, skin and lymphatic system. It also functions as a natural bug repellent because of the aldehydes, I brought it with me when I traveled to Bali for this reason, and diffused it at night when I slept. Diffuse Lemongrass oil inside or outside on your porch or patio to keep away mosquitos and bugs. As a highly empathic person, I also need plenty of support releasing toxins through the lymphatic system, and Lemongrass plays a supporting role in doing that for me!

Lemongrass is the oil of cleansing, and it has powerful ways of cleansing toxic energy. Have you ever felt despair or lethargy? This can be caused by old limiting beliefs, toxic energies, and negativity. It teaches us how to move forward without hesitation by dispelling these and beginning our healing path.

In this way it's a powerful cleansing tool for your house, room or office space. It also helps those with hoarding tendencies to let go of what they don't need! I like to use it for my full moon rituals (after I smudge with palo santo), which is all all about letting go of things that no longer serve us.

Lemongrass is a powerful spiritual essential oil, as it opens the brow chakra and clears negative energy from there. If you are looking to open up your psychic and spiritual connection, and feel blocked, this oil is for you. It helps let go of past issues and stagnant energy, and overall it helps cleanse emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
