Essential oils are becoming increasingly popular among people today.
Lemongrass oil is one that contains properties that many are not aware of. As a chronic migraine sufferer, I have endured daily headaches for over 20 years. I’m sure many people can relate to this condition. I have visited numerous doctors, including a neurologist, for some relief. Desperate for help, I began listening to the tremendous things being said about essential oils. Having half-heartedly tried herbals and oils in the past, I was skeptic, to say the least.
Though lemongrass is not necessarily the first oil people might think of regarding headaches, it was very effective in my situation. Lemongrass is mostly known for infectious diseases, but many people are not aware that it also assists with oxygen flow. I have for years thought that this might be part of my problem. I have circulation issues as well, and this essential oil is also believed to be effective in various cases with this problem. When you consider the fact that the brain provides oxygen to the body, it became clear to me that both of these problems might be related. Thus, a successful remedy came to life. Although headaches are still part of my life, being able to avoid daily ones and cutting migraines to a minimum has been almost miraculous to me.
Lemongrass essential oil can be applied neat (no dilution) directly on the head or temple for headaches, or any other area of concern. For children, or those with sensitive skin, it is best to use with a carrier oil (one example is fractionated coconut oil). For dilution, a solution of 1 drop of each should do the trick. When used in a distiller, it can purify the air and help to promote awareness (and we can all use that).
There are those who believe that essential oils can assist with emotional healing. One of the benefits believed to come from lemongrass is the release of negative energy within your body. This could certainly have contributed to the help with my headaches, as I was able to let go of many negative things in my mind.
If you are like me and looking for natural alternatives to assist with various problems, lemongrass essential oil is definitely one that you should consider. It is important, though, to become knowledgeable about any oil and its properties before using.
