Lemon grass herb is commonly used in teas, soups, and curries. It is also suitable for poultry, fish, and seafood. The essential oil can be used in many skin care applications.
Add a few drops of lemongrass essential oil to your pets shampoo, and on cloth flea collars. It adds a fresh, clean scent and discourages fleas. Use it in aroma lamps, sprays, and body and face oils to deter insects. Unlike harsh chemical insect sprays, the scent of lemongrass is very pleasant and makes a good room spray.
