Lemongrass Oil

Lemongrass oil is a natural essential oil that is derived from the lemongrass plant, scientifically known as Cymbopogon Citratus. This aromatic oil is widely used in various industries, including aromatherapy, skincare, and culinary applications, due to its refreshing scent and numerous beneficial properties.

Lemongrass oil is obtained through steam distillation of the fresh or dried leaves of the lemongrass plant. The oil contains a high concentration of key components, such as citral, geraniol, and limonene, which contribute to its unique fragrance and therapeutic effects.

One of the notable characteristics of lemongrass oil is its invigorating citrusy scent, often described as a blend of lemon and herbal notes. This pleasant aroma makes it a popular choice in the fragrance industry, where it is used in perfumes, soaps, and candles.
