As far as essential oils go it is not expensive and can be used for so many different issues. A great additive to a cleaner or for skin related issues. Can help with minor pain and inflammation and also with digestion. Emotionally lemongrass can help with depression and be soothing during emotional issues. It is a great at relaxing but at the same time uplifting and energizing!
I love this oil on it’s own or in combination with other oils to boost certain health issues.
