Lemongrass oil is astringent in nature. It provides deep pore cleansing; removing excess oil and impurities from pores, and tightening them. Its anti-microbial property helps fight acne, athlete’s foot and other skin infections. A massage with lemon grass oil is known to stimulate blood circulation, clear cellulite as well as helps in relieving muscle pain; the latter owed to its anti-inflammatory nature. An enhanced circulation, along with its astringency can help clear skin of pigmentation spots and other blemishes. This oil is extracted from fresh, or only partly dried, leaves of grass Cymbopogon citrates and is known to keep the skin healthy and supple. It strengthens connective tissue; firms up the skin and helps maintain its elasticity.
