My Experience With Utama Spice Lemongrass Essential Oil:




Lemongrass (Cymbopogon Citratus) oil is extracted from the herb through the steam distillation process. Well, before I start writing about my experience with this oil, let me share some lemongrass essential oil benefits with all of you. 

  • Lemongrass essential has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, this oil helps reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, ease the muscle pain
  • Lemongrass essential oil also has anti-oxidants, astringent and antiseptic properties. The anti-oxidants help reduce the signs of ageing and the astringent properties help clean and minimise the  pores, prevent acne
  • When used in aromatherapy, it helps relieve the stress, depression, anxiety and promote the feelings of calm
  • Steam inhalation as well as the facial steam cleansing method with this oil, both work wonders
  •  Lemongrass essential oil works great as a massage oil. It needs to be mixed with carrier oils like jojoba or coconut oil
  • When used in hair care, it adds shine to hair, strengthens hair follicles, reduces dandruff and scalp itchiness
  • Diffusing this essential oil helps eliminate stress, nervousness and its refreshing aroma help calm the senses
  • This lemongrass oil also keeps away bugs & mosquitos. Works as a great insect repellent

Product Texture & Scent:

Utama Spice lemongrass essential oil has a strong mix of a citrusy and spicy scent. But unfortunately, the scent doesn’t last longer when applied topically!

Product Performance & How I Use This Lemongrass Oil:

Ever since I received this lemongrass essential oil along with Sonoma Yi aromatherapy diffuser, body butter and body lotion from the brand Utama Spice, I have used this oil regularly. Maximum times, I am diffusing this oil in the diffuser at home.

Diffuser benefits of lemongrass essential oils include relieving tension, anxiety, insomnia, stress and mental fatigue. To diffuse it, I pour only 3-4 drops of this oil in the water and run the diffuser for about 4-5 hours to obtain maximum benefits from it. It works amazingly in reducing the stress, depression and my insomnia issues. Its strong, fresh scent uplifts my mood instantly and rejuvenates the senses. The refreshing herbal aroma fills the room with strong positive energy which I need the most these days.

Apart from diffusing this essential oil, I also mix it with my body lotions and hand creams as part of my daily night skincare routine. Since Utama Spice lavender coconut lotion got over, I needed something which could help me with insomnia and the lemongrass essential works great in this field.

I mix 2 drops with my regular body lotion and 1 drop with my hand cream and it does a great job! My skin and outfit both smell nice. However, the scent lasts for about 3-4 hours only! I thought it would stay put throughout the night or at least 7 hours and above if used topically. I never used it as a toner or mixed it with my face cleanser. Make sure, you aren’t applying this essential oil directly to your skin. I made this mistake with tea-tree oil earlier in my life which caused my cheeks super sensitive :( Please, do a patch test before you use any essential oil on your skin.

For the hair, I simply add 1-2 drops in my shampoo. I use Aroma Essentials all-natural hair growth oil, which is already infused with precious herbs, so there is no need to mix any other EO! When mixed with shampoo, it does help with reducing my scalp itching problem and dandruff.

While drafting this article, a fly entered my room to say HI to me :D I sprayed this essential oil around my room to test its effect in repelling the insects/bugs. To my dismay, it didn’t work!! I could see that the fly mocked at me and made fun of me! Anyway, will test it again for another fly/bug and will update the post accordingly.


NBAM Rating: 4.8/5



Overall,
I am happy with Utama Spice Lemongrass essential oil, which is a multi-purpose oil. This lemongrass oil can be used in your skincare, haircare regime and aromatherapy. Its strong, refreshing, energising aroma works as a stress buster for me!

    We have used some essential oils on our house, but we've never tried lemongrass before. We have found lavender very useful. I'll have to check this oil out.

    My staples are lavender and coconut essential oils. I want to give this lemongrass essential oil a try too. I like the scent and the flavor it gives to my grilled meats, so I guess it would also be great as an essential oil. Thanks for the review.
