Get to know sweet lemongrass
Lemongrass is known for its citrusy scent and is commonly used in cooking, herbal medicine, and personal care products. It’s also known for its antibacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.
There are quite a few uses for lemongrass, though its most common uses are to treat digestive problems and high blood pressure. In its essential oil form, it also helps energize people by combating stress, depression, and anxiety.
Preliminary studies show that lemongrass essential oil provides benefits for both your skin and hair. For example, a 2015 study showed that using lemongrass essential oil in shampoo significantly decreased dandruff in participants. Other studies have shown that lemongrass essential oil may inhibit growth of certain fungi (like those that contribute to yeast infections).
If you experience anxiety, lemongrass essential oil has also been shown to help relieve anxiety. A study showed that inhaling lemongrass oil helped participants relax and recover quicker than those who used different types of tested oil.
