Last year, I wrote a post about Lemongrass essential oil titled A Great Gentle Lemongrass Chemotype.
The post is about a monoterpenol-rich Lemongrass essential oil from India that was new to me. It is such a lovely chemotype, and has all the anti-fungal properties of the aldehyde-rich Lemongrass, so it seemed worth mentioning again.
Aldehyde-rich oils are so powerful, but they can be very skin-irritating. So finding a chemotype that provides all the benefits of the oil, but without the harsh effects, is such a blessing–truly a sign of the wonders nature can produce, whether on its own or with the help of a little human cultivation!
