Sharing Saturday: Lemongrass Essential Oil

Go away, mosquitoes!

I don’t know about you, but I love the smell of lemons! Lemongrass is similar, but stronger; like lemon drops. I also love this smell. In fact, one of my favorite gluten-free noodle soups is lemongrass and chili, especially if it’s mixed with spring onion. Yummy!

But I digress. Lemongrass essential oil is one of my favorites. I have found, quite by accident, that this lovely scent helps me to keep mosquito-bite free. Yay! This is a huge bonus for the Summer in the Midwest, where mosquitoes are practically the Midwestern bird!

Bye-bye you nasty buggers!

What I do is put a small amount of lemongrass essential oil on my arms, legs, neck, face, or any other body part that is not covered. This not only smells awesome, but works really well for me to avoid those pesky Summer mosquito bites. I have noticed, too, that it seems to repel ticks. Yay!

Lemongrass is also recommended to ease pain in bones, joints, and muscles. I have noticed a marked improvement in my broken foot from when I started using lemongrass on it. Two of our pups like it too. Ducky, who is getting on in years, was crying every time he came out of his sleeping crate in the mornings. He would cry all the way to the back door, where he would be let out to do his business. Even sometimes during the day, he would whimper and cry in pain. This broke my heart, because Ducky is such a sweet boy. So, after I saw how the Young Living lemongrass essential oil worked out my foot, I decided to try it out on our Duck. He is like a new dog. There is no more crying and whining! He is no longer hurting. Yay!

Delilah, was hugged so much as a pup and tried to jump up on things that were too high for her little legs, that she has a few back issues. I administered a small bit of YL lemongrass essential oil onto my finger and then on her back, using the feathering technique I had learned. It worked. Now she loves her oils and she isn’t moaning because she hurts. Yay!

This YL lemongrass essential oil is such a multitasker, plus, I just love the smell, that it has quickly become a favorite in our house. If fact, I have it in my car diffuser right now. No more mosquitoes want to come along for the ride! Now that’s what I call a win!

Yay, Young Living!
