Used across the globe for centuries, plant essences played a substantial role in medicinal preparations and religious ceremonies. These essences evolved to what we now know as essential oils. While still used for medical and religious purposes, essential oils developed a contemporary following for relaxation, massage and skincare and as a mood booster. Lemongrass Spa Products mission is not only to provide fresh, clean & natural products for the entire family but also to provide an indulgent spa experience from the comfort of your own home. Here are some tips and recipes for enhancing your home spa experience using essential oils.

Diffusing

Create a romantic, uplifting, relaxing or other desirable ambiance by diffusing essential oils in your home or car. People diffuse oils purely for the love of a scent, aromatherapy benefits or both. Whatever your reason, it is recommended you use an electric nebulizer or diffuser (steam or fan) to maintain the molecular integrity of the compound because essential oils can breakdown if exposed to heat. Lemongrass Spa Products now offers three diffuser choices: Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser (steam), Aroma to Go Portable Diffuser (fan) and a new Car Diffuser (fan). Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the diffuser to enjoy the aroma throughout your home or car. As an added bonus, a study published in t
