Benefits of Lemongrass Oil on Hair


You may think of hair loss as a problem that only plagues men. Not so, hair loss is an issue that many people face, including women and children, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. When your hair starts to fall out, you may turn to alternative treatments for help. In the holistic practice of aromatherapy, certain essential oils are used to treat hair loss. If you notice sudden or unusual amounts of hair loss, you should consult your doctor, as this may be a sign of an underlying medical problem.

According to author Judy Griffin in her book Flowers that Heal, lemongrass oil is known to be an effective treatment to combat hair loss, oily hair, and scalp conditions. Some aromatherapists believe that lemongrass oil can strengthen the hair follicles, another benefit for those suffering from thinning or weak hair. Lemongrass can be combined with other hair growth oils such as lavender, or rosemary oils, and mixed with a carrier oil to make an effective scalp treatment to combat hair loss.We use one such combination in our Lemongrass Hair Oil or Lemongrass Hair Pomade.

Cymbopogon citratus or lemongrass is essentially a herb that has been in use for years in traditional Indian medicine. It is a type of an aromatic or scented grass, native to India that has various beneficial herbal and medicinal properties. The oil extracted from lemongrass is one of the best essential oils and aromatherapy oils with a number of health and skin benefits. The oil is extracted from dried lemongrass through a procedure known as steam distillation. The oil has a light and fresh citrus fragrance with a dark yellow or amber color.

Lemongrass oil has various medicinal, herbal and therapeutic properties. It has analgesic, anti-bacterial, carminative, deodorizing, febrifuge, fungicidal, antiseptic, antidepressant, astringent, diuretic, galactogogue, insecticidal, antipyretic, antimicrobial and sedative properties. It finds utility in many areas due to all these properties and it is known to have just a few side effects. Lemongrass oil is also safe to be used by children but should not be used if one is pregnant.

Lemongrass oil is also useful in relieving symptoms related to depression, anxiety and panic attacks imparted by its antidepressant properties. This is one of the most important benefits of lemongrass oil. You can take advantage of these properties every day simply by using lemongrass essential oil.
