The spicier sister of Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), Gingergrass is a tropically red-tufted grass that is steamed distilled to produce copious essential oil. While Lemongrass and Gingergrass can be used interchangeably, Gingergrass is slightly sweeter and is traditionally used more often in skincare and perfumes while Lemongrass is used more often in teas, soaps, and cuisines. They both excel at repelling pests.
Gingergrass grows freely in East India, and the plant compounds of oil are the perfect combination for microbe-managing deodorants, foot soaks for athletes in need, toners for oily and acne prone skin, and surface cleaners. In massage blends, it embraces delicate terrains of dimples, ripples, lumps, and bumps.
In aromatherapy, Gingergrass Essential Oil boosts positive energy by lifting the spirit and clarifying the mind to alleviate fogginess and fatigue. A drop in a diffuser, salt pipe, or a warm shower will do the trick quick.
Gingergrass’s citrusy-sweet and spicy, fresh, and lemony complex aroma is heart-note perfection in perfumery. It is excellent in exotic blends, floral fragrances, and woodsy colognes.
