1. I wanted to pass on a Lemongrass application for sore throat
. I layed on my back, opened my mouth and droped a few drops of lemongrass directly on the back of my throat. The sore throat was completely gone in about 3-4 seconds. Simply AMAZING!!!! Also I use it for any tooth/gum infections with perfect results. - Tom G. [HEO's comment: Tom is braver than I am, I prefer to put a drop of oil in a little water, gargle then swallow for a sore throat, but it's good to know that it worked and he is happy with the results.] - Tom G.
2. Although I'm in my mid 30's, I have terrible problems with painful varicose veins.
I decided to try some undiluted Lemongrass on them, but that cause a slight irritation on my skin. Now I dilute 1 part Lemongrass to 4 parts carrier oil. (I use virgin coconut oil or olive oil.) Within minutes of applying this my legs feel so much better and the aching vein pain vanishes. I've been doing this now for about a month a few times weekly, and the veins are not nearly as noticable visibly as well as not nearly as painful.
3. My son had tonenail fungus
for over 15 years, and we'd tried about eveything treatment known to man to get rid of it. When we started using essential oils, I read that Lemongrass would treat it, so I told him to apply it faithfully day and night, and it is gone. His toenail did turn yellow, but he is so relieved to have that bugger gone!
4. Every winter my knees
give me fits. They are painful and click when I walk. No over-the-counter product or supplement has helped. I decided to try Lemongrass. I applied it one evening and felt better immediately. The pain and click when I walked was almost non-existent. I applied 2-3 times a day for just a few days, and my knees feel like new. [Linda's comment: She doesn't mention diluting the Lemongrass, but it is typically diluted because it can be irritating to the skin.]
5. I've been applying Lemongrass diluted with Almond oil to my varicose veins
for the last year and have seen so much improvement. Initially, the hard, painful lumps diminished, and then I decided to start taking it internally, and they have almost disappeared.
6. I found this fantastic recipe for Lemongrass Lemonade
1 gallon pure water
3 sliced Lemons (squeeze and scrape out the insides)
25 drops Lemon EO
5 drops Tangerine or Grapefruit EO
4 drops Lemongrass EO - gives the drink a spicy touch
2 TB Agave (we typically use Stevia to taste)
This keeps for a few days in the refrigerator. Shake well before serving.
Use caution with infants and children. Avoid eye contact. In case of accidental contact, put a few drops of any pure vegetable oil in the eye. Water will not adequately dilute the oil. We’ve never known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your doctor if necessary.
