A drop of lemongrass oil was placed on a sugar cube and given to patients to cure digestive complaints such as vomiting and gastric irritability. Applied topically, lemongrass oil has been used to treat ringworm, kill skin fungus and ease joint pain. Ancient civilizations also used lemongrass oil in food flavorings, cosmetics, perfume and incenses.

The natural antiseptic properties of lemongrass oil make it ideal to help heal wounds. As it is also a natural antibacterial, lemongrass oil can help prevent infections when applied topically to broken skin. Lemongrass oil can even be used as a natural deodorant.

For this purpose, it can be added to carrier oil and massaged into the skin or it can be mixed with water to mist on the skin before going outside. People who have sensitive skin should avoid applying lemongrass essential oil directly to the skin as it is likely to cause irritation.

As it is very potent, it must be diluted in a beverage such as water or tea and only a couple of drops should be taken at a time. Though most commonly used internally for digestive complaints, lemongrass oil can help bring down a fever and work as a natural diuretic. Women who are pregnant should not use lemongrass essential oil internally or externally.
