Xiang Mao – Red Lemongrass
Xiang Mao Cymbopogon citratus– or Red Lemongrass comes from Taiwan.
Xiang Mao translates to “Aromatic grass for rapid enlightenment.”
It has a light refreshing fragrance with soft hint of lemon. Its much gentler on the nose and skin than standard lemongrass.
Xiang Mao is great for:
Mental: Sharpens/quickens the mind and enhances creativity. Calming and relaxing and is great for improving concentration.
Physical: Anti fungal, anti microbial, anti-inflammatory, relieving for rheumatoid arthritis and migraines. Can improve digestive function, and use it as digestive aid – gas, balance to the endocrine system, promotes skin regeneration and is a natural insect repellant.
Emotional: Empowering, uplifting and clearing, brings the body and mind back into a state of balance, revives the spirit.
How I like to use Xiang Mao:
- Add a drop to an insect bite, to help reduce swelling and relieve itching.
- 1-2 drops on my temples to clear my mind and gain focus.
- 1-2 drops behind my ears. I love how refreshing the fragrance is and it sets me up for my day
- 2-5 drops on any areas of pain to relieve inflammation
- 4-5 drops in some epsom salts and then add to a bath
- 1-2 drops rubbed on my belly after I’ve eaten a big meal
- 5-10 drops in the diffuser to freshen the air and act as an insect repellant
- Mix 10-15 drops into 60mls (2oz) of massage oil and rub on feet to stimulate immune system
Its an oil thats also great to use on pets to repel louse. Its fragrance may help to calm barking dogs.
You can also add 15-20 drops to a water bottle and spray down items you want to keep safe from animals damaging it.
