A favourite oil in India for hundreds of years, it is used for reducing fevers and infectious diseases. India was the main supplier until the second world war, after which production was taken over by the West Indies. Lemongrass inhibits growth of bacteria internally and externally, prevents wounds from going septic, along with its fungicidal properties. Lemongrass in my opinion is the number one deodorising oil for killing bad odours without just masking them. Add 5 drops of Lemongrass to 20ml of carrier oil, then massage to help tone loose skin after weight loss.
