Essential Oil Spotlight HOW TO USE Growing and harvesting quality Lemongrass is no easy task, but for some small groups of family farmers in Southern India, it is their passion and way of life. When it is time to harvest the lemongrass, these farmers hike five miles up a steep mountain and spend about seven days harvesting a 100-acre plantation—by hand. Once they are finished, they take the harvested lemongrass and walk five miles down the mountain while balancing a large bundle of lemongrass on their heads. With every drop of dōTERRA® Lemongrass essential oil, you will experience a refreshing aroma that relaxes your mind and helps you keep a more positive outlook on life. The subtle citrus flavor of Lemongrass is often used in Asian cuisine and herbal teas, and when taken internally, Lemongrass delivers many benefits to your digestive system.
