Image via WikipediaThe Lemongrass soap is fresh! These bars are scented with Lemongrass essential oil. A bit of a whirly swirl done in the pot. I have to practice more with colors and swirling so I can create masterpieces that are useful. My kitchen smells lively with this aroma whofting through and quite pleasant I must add. Those of you not famaliar with lemongrass, it is a pungent,earthy lemony scent. It is astringent, antiviral and antibacterial. Lemongrass essential oil comes from grasslike leaves that naturally repells insects especially combined with Citronella essential oil. Lemongrass is great for oily skin. Always be careful not to use this essential oil full strength on the skin as it maybe a skin irritant or use in direct sunlight. All citrus oils and those similar to the same chemical makeup, can cause the skin to become irritated when in direct sunlight.
