Lemongrass essential oil, the benefits in massage:
Lemongrass is purifying and toning to the skin and as it has a natural heat element. Lemongrass is fabulous to use in massage in promoting heat to a localised area or to a larger area of the body when in use during a massage treatment. I use lemongrass often in my massage treatments as it is a natural heating oil with a beautiful aroma, helps to relieve stress and is refreshing. I have noticed that clients leave the clinic more aware of themselves and with more energy in their step.
I use a massage oil in the treatment, then add lemongrass onto the client - only a few drops - this gives of a beautiful aroma and a sense of calmness. Followed by heat to the body, which promotes blood flow to the body, stimulating the senses.
