“I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey work of the stars.”
~ Walt Whitman
“Green and lemony are the fragrance categories to which lemongrass belongs. When inhaled in low amounts, green oils can induce renewal and transformation on the psyche. Just as it stimulates the elimination pathways of physical toxins, so Lemongrass can help resolve day to day distressed feelings and pathogenic emotions, especially when these are underpinned by pessimism and mental depression.”
~ Peter Holmes, Aromatica
“Plainly straightforward, the spirit of lemongrass illuminates what has been with the statement ‘Forgive, then forget’.”
~ Valerie Ann Worwood, Aromatherapy for the Soul
