Lemongrass has had a firm place as a medicinal plant, especially in Indian naturopathy, for many centuries. Also in Europe the knowledge of the positive effect of lemongrass on health is becoming more and more widespread.
In natural cosmetics, lemongrass powder has an antioxidant and antiseptic effect and fights bacteria, fungi and viruses. This makes it ideal for skin care products against acne, but also for products that stimulate blood circulation and skin tightening, as well as against heavy perspiration and even for insect repellent.
Its pleasant fragrance makes it ideal for use in toothpaste, it fights bad breath and also has an antibacterial effect in the mouth.
