Lemongrass – Cymbopogon citratus
Used to reduce nervous tension, lemongrass works to regulate the parasympathetic system – supports rest & relaxation. Lemongrass also has potent astringent properties, ideal for reducing dilated pores.
Blend with juniper berry and grapefruit to cleanse and release negative energy that has stored up over the winter.
