Benefits of Lemongrass Oil.
Lemongrass oil has analgesic, antimicrobial, antiseptic, carminative, astringent, antipyretic, fungicidal, bactericidal, and antidepressant properties, making it one of the most versatile and health-promoting essential oils.

Natural Deodorizer
Lemongrass oil is a natural and safe air freshener and deodorizer.

Skin Health
One major lemongrass essential oil benefit is its skin healing properties. Its antiseptic and astringent properties make lemongrass oil perfect for getting even and glowing skin. It can sterilize your pores, serve as a natural toner, and strengthen your skin tissues.

Hair Health
Lemongrass oil can strengthen your hair follicles; so if you are struggling with hair loss or an itchy and irritated scalp, massage a few drops of lemongrass oil into your scalp for two minutes and then rinse. The soothing and bacteria-killing properties will leave your hair shiny, fresh, and odor free.

Natural Bug Repellant
Because of its high citral and geraniol content, lemongrass oil is known to repel bugs such as mosquitoes and ants. This natural repellant has a mild smell and can be sprayed directly on the skin. You can even use lemongrass oil to kill fleas.

Stress Reducer & Sleep Aid
The calming and mild smell of lemongrass oil is known to relieve anxiety, irritability, and insomnia. The sedative and hypnotic properties of lemongrass oil can help to improve the duration and quality of sleep.

Muscle Relaxer
Lemongrass oil benefits also include pain and ache relief. The oil helps to improve blood circulation, and can therefore relieve muscle spasms, backaches, sprains, and cramps.

Lemongrass oil has been used as a detoxifier in several countries. It is known to detox the digestive tract, liver, kidneys, bladder, and pancreas. Because it works as a diuretic, consuming lemongrass oil will help you to flush harmful toxins out of your body and keep your system clean

Menstrual Cramp Relief
Drinking lemongrass tea is known to help women with menstrual cramps; it can also help with nausea and irritability. Drink two cups of lemongrass tea a day to relieve pain associated with your period.

Stomach Protector & Gastric Ulcer Cure
Lemongrass has been known for centuries anecdotally as a cure for stomach distress, gastritis, and gastric ulcers. Now research is catching up with this long known support and cure.

Headache Relief
The calming and soothing effects of lemongrass oil has the power to relieve the pain, pressure, or tension that can cause headaches.

Kills Bacteria
The citral and limonene content in lemongrass oil can kill or stifle the growth of bacteria and fungi. This will help you avoid getting infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, or other types of fungus. Studies in rats have proved that lemongrass essential oil is an effective antifungal and antibacterial agent.

Fever Reducer
Consuming lemongrass oil or a lemongrass infusion has been used to reduce fevers. Lab studies have shown that a lemongrass infusion is effective in relieving feverish symptoms.

The benefits of Sandalwood essential oil (Santalum album)
Derived from the steam distillation of the wood from the sandalwood tree. It's woody, and earthy aroma is incredibly grounding and rich, but not overwhelming. Therapeutically, it's most often used for healthy skin, the nervous system, and It’s a powerful fighter of bad bacteria and viruses. Traditionally, it is given as a treatment for the urinary tract and kidneys; aiding sore throat, chest infections, and bronchitis.

Sandalwood is currently being studied for its possible anti-cancer effects. At least one study, which used a 5% topical solution an hour before sun exposure, has demonstrated a reduction in skin carcinogens from Sandalwood application.

Sandalwood is a natural calmative and relaxation agent. This makes it useful in slowing spasms, stopping cramps, and for treatment of insomnia and anxiety. Sandalwood is also an oil high in sesquiterpenes, a naturally occurring chemical compound found in certain essential oils, known for having a positive impact on health and wellness, particular in regards to the brain. It is one of the oils with the capability of passing the blood brain barrier, a necessary component to supporting cellular health. But it's probably the emotional wellness and aromatic influence that is more widely known.

Primary Benefits
Promotes healthy, smooth skin
Reduces the appearance of scars and blemishes
Enhances mood
Frequently used in meditation for its grounding and uplifting properties

Emotional and Spiritual Benefits
Sandalwood oil is widely known for being a spiritual, sacred oil, used around the world during practices of prayer and meditation. Perhaps this is because of the way the oil impacts a busy mind, calming thoughts and anxiety or worry, allowing a person to relax into a peaceful state, let go of their own mind/ego, and slip into presence (especially when applied over the forehead, the prefrontal cortex, which is your worry center of the brain).

Skin Benefits
Sandalwood essential oil helps soften skin by increasing and restoring its ability to retain moisture. It is powerfully anti-aging; it can relieve localized rashes, inflammation, and itching; assist in fading scar tissue; offer toning and astringent properties; help heal eczema and psoriasis; soothe acne and shrink pimples; reduce dandruff; and makes a great aftershave. It is anti-inflammatory and a immunological stimulant, and can help reduce swelling in lymph glands when applied topically to the affected area. It’s similar to androsterone and helps stimulate and regulate the reproductive system. For this reason, it has also seen traditional uses as an aphrodisiac.

Benefits for Home Sweet Home
Last but not least sandalwood is excellent for use around the house (especially in the kitchen) to repel ants and other insects. This makes it an excellent alternative for otherwise poisonous sprays and traps.
