Lemongrass essential oil has been used for centuries in both South and Southeast Asia, despite its origins in India. It is an essential oil that is widely grown in Asia and the Americas. One of the many benefits of lemongrass essential oil is that mosquitoes hate it while bees like it. It eliminates dullness, brightens skin tone, and reduces the appearance of dark spots. Because of its clean scent, the oil is perfect for use in a variety of personal care products. The stimulating aroma works wonders for the spirit and refreshes the mind.
