Lemongrass is a potent astringent and is great for facial toners or applied to oily skin. Aromatically, lemongrass is great at lifting the spirits and focusing the mind. Like its cousin citronella, lemongrass can keep insects at bay. Diffuse, apply through spray mist with water, or apply in 2-5% dilution.
