Emotional And Energetic Properties Of Lemongrass Essential Oil

The strong, lemony citrus aroma of lemongrass oil is energising and works to lift the spirit, leaving you feeling emotionally and mentally refreshed.

The stresses and troubles of the day fade away, making space for new, positive experiences.

It's therefore great to use to combat mental and emotional fatigue, poor concentration, pessimistic thoughts and when you are feeling sad or down in the dumps. Great to use when concentration and thinking is required such as when making important decisions, studying or even to just kickstart your brain in the morning.

Lemongrass’s essential oil vibrates on two colours, and the interceding one.

That is: it vibrates yellow and green, as well as yellowy-green. When inhaled, green essential oils have a sedative but uplifting quality.

These are considered excellent for use when you are feeling sad and down.

But where does lemongrass’ own healing mechanism come from?

Lemongrass oil specifically addresses situations involved with expansion. Where the spirit can see there is room to grow, but the emotional and mental bodies refuse to let that happen, holding on to past failures, mistaking them for the blueprint of a person’s existence.

The Optimistic Nature of Lemongrass Essential Oil

Lemongrass oil instils emotionally healthier attitudes to failure.

Where previously a person may have felt that it reflected poorly on them, and thus proceeded to label themselves as failures, lemongrass helps them to see there will be other opportunities to succeed.

Green energy pertains to the heart chakra, and in particular, to self-love and to compassion. Lemongrass reminds us to be a bit kinder about the ways we treat ourselves.

Where green vibration oils are about uplifting the spirit, yellow speaks directly to a person’s sense of self. It has direct correlations with the solar plexus chakra and thus a person’s identity and their attitudes about control.

The yellow also points to connections with planetary sun energy. Again, the sun relates to sense of self, but also strength and vitality. And here, we see lemongrass oil vitalising the inner forces to stabilise a person’s sense of identity, to encourage them to fulfil the roles they were destined to do.

Neither courage or confidence seem to be the correct descriptor for lemongrass, but the vibration is very close to that. Assuredness, self-reliance perhaps? The song it whispers seems to say “That’s okay. This is not all that you are.

Examine your thoughts as you inhale lemongrass essential oil. Explore where you may see new pathways and possibilities for growth. The question to ask is “What would you love to do with your life?”

Listen to the ideas come stepping into the bright yellow sunshine of lemongrass.

Lemongrass Essential Oil and Feelings of Burden of Responsibility

It’s an extremely useful oil for people who struggle to step into leadership roles, or who do hold them, and bear the weight of responsibility on their shoulders.

These people know that others depend on them and they believe they can succeed, and put every ounce of energy into work, at the expense of their emotional and spiritual well-being. Inside, they may question if they are good enough to do the role.

Lemongrass believes they are.

If this resonates with you, perhaps spend some time with her.

As stated, it has a relationship with responsibility, but it is perhaps most useful when people are taking themselves too seriously. It’s wonderful for focusing the mind for exams, for example and also a fantastic choice for people who work as carers.

Lemongrass helps loosen those fears, and that crippling sense of duty, if only for a short time.

Lemongrass Essential Oil to Help You Regain Your Personal Power

The ongoing repetition of feeling that you are useless and a failure, gnaw away at your confidence making you timid and dependent.

Lemongrass doesn’t really like that.

It finds its way directly to the solar plexus and says “Remember, power. Let me help you take control, and step into who you are. I really need you to own that power

Lemongrass Essential Oil and Mind Body Conditions

Naturally, Chinese medicine has a great deal to say about lemongrass, given its prevalent usage in Asia.

They talk about how it affects immunity as well as a person’s relationship with themselves, and the physical body’s relationship with itself.

In Spiritual Phytoessencing, Dr. Bruce Berkowsky describes how lemongrass directly acts to Chinese immunity channels Wei Qi and Yin Qi. These two channels work, in synergy, to provide both defence and attack for the physical body.

Going off on a tangent, lemongrass essential oil is often a popular choice for jetlag.

Our Commitment To Quality

Every batch of lemongrass oil we receive is tested for purity and quality. Each batch of essential oil can differ, even from the same producer. Because essential oil is extracted from plants, it can be affected by many factors such as the weather, the seasons, and human error... a bit like fine wine.

This is why we carry out batch testing even if the batch is from the same supplier so we can guarantee consistent quality.

The farms we’ve chosen to work with consistently provide incredibly pure, high quality oils. We regularly review our producers with a stringent set of quality guidelines that we’ve developed in partnership with our industry experts and their 20+ years in the industry.

“Even an oil which is quite truthfully described as pure may be of poor quality, and therefore of less value therapeutically. IF AN ESSENTIAL OIL COSTS MUCH LESS THAN YOU WOULD NORMALLY EXPECT TO PAY FOR IT, the oil may well be a third or fourth distillate from a batch of plant material which has already yielded the greater part of its properties to the first or second distillation.”

About The Cultivation

Our mission is to provide you with the purest essential oils that contain the therapeutic properties you need to support yours and your family’s health.

Sometimes this means the oil is certified organic but acquiring an organic certification can be quite costly to farmers, which means many choose not to obtain it. Oils derived from plants that are organically grown or wildcrafted are still free from man-made chemicals despite not being certified. This means the oils can be of equal or better quality than comparable certified organic products and often at a lower price.

We also try our best to source single origin essential oils wherever possible.

How We Package Our Lemongrass Oil

Our lemongrass oil is fresh off the still and comes in a 10ML blue glass bottle and is sealed to protect the precious oil within. The bottle also comes with an orifice reducer built in so you can dispense the oil one drop at a time.

During the shipping process, special canisters prolong and protect the quality of the oil from light and temperature during transit from around the globe and we ensure a quick turnaround time from producer to bottle, with minimal shelf time to maintain quality and purity.

We typically recommend storing your oil at or below room temperature in a cool dark place.

The Tests We Run On Our Oils To Ensure Quality

All of our oil is constantly tested for purity. The testing provides us with key data about what constituent compounds are in the oils and at what volumes.

Gas Chromatography (GC)

Gas Chromatography (GC) describes the analytical separation technique used to analyze volatile substances in the gas phase. In GC, the components of a sample are dissolved in a solvent and vaporized in order to separate the analytes by distributing the sample between two phases: a stationary phase and a mobile phase. GC provides us key data about what compounds are in oils and how much of each component is present.

Mass Spectrometry (MS)

Mass Spectrometry (MS) is an analytical chemistry technique that identifies the amount and type of individual molecules present in a sample by measuring the mass-to-charge ratio. A mass spectrometer has three essential functions: Ion source, Mass analyzer and the Detector. The Ion source is where the sample is ionized. Once the sample is ionized, the mass analyzer sorts and separates the ions according to the mass and charge. Once the ions are separated and sorted then the separation is measured in the detector where a results chart is displayed.

A personal message from our founders

Ultimately we believe that an oil, like the business that stands behind it, should be ethical and be exactly what it says on the tin. That’s why we only use the highest quality lemongrass, with the highest quality extraction methods, and shipped with the highest quality packaging.

It’s also why you won’t see us throwing around buzzwords that don’t mean anything, like “therapeutic grade” or “clinical grade.” When we describe our oils, we mean what we say.

We believe that the more you know about essential oils in general, the more likely you’ll want to become a part of the Sacred Soul community.

If for any reason you’re unsatisfied with our oil, I want to personally invite you to email me and let me know. I’ll be happy to refund your money within the first 90 days of your purchase.

I’m betting my business on the fact that you’ll be blown away by the quality and aroma of our lemongrass essential oil.

Either way, thanks for stopping by our site and checking us out. We hope every interaction you have with us, in person, or online is positive and memorable. Feel free to drop us a note on our contact page if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback for us.


Dilution Guide


This guide is a general overview for oils that don't have a more restricted dermal recommendation and are considered safe for topical use with adults age 16+. It also doesn't account for any specific medical issues, medication or skin conditions. You should check with a medical professional or aromatherapist before use. Below are not recommended dosages. Never apply undiluted to the skin.

ALWAYS check the max dermal use for the individual oil/s or blend you plan to use. You should also consider your medical and skin conditions and take the advice of a qualified professional. Serious negative effects such as skin sensitization, irritation, burns and other issues could occur from misusing essential oils and products containing essential oils.

Patch test: For first time use, place a drop of diluted essential oil on a small area of skin such as the inside elbow. After application, be aware of adverse reactions for the first 24-48 hours.


General Use

See below for approximate dilution ratios and usage guidelines. These are NOT recommended dosages and you should always consult with a medical professional or qualified aromatherapist before use.

Always start with a low dilution.

  • 0.5% - 1% = facial, long term daily use or full body application
  • 2% = generally good for regular use
  • 3% = for specific localised concerns
  • 5% = short term specific concerns (max 2 weeks)
  • 10% = acute specific concerns

When measuring in 'drops', just be aware that the only way for true accuracy is to measure your drops using a digital scale because different oils can amount to a slightly different number of drops per ml. The orifice reducer in the bottle is also not a standard size so could differ between brands, which could affect the size of ‘a drop’ and therefore your dilution %. This table is intended as an approximate guide only.

Can it be used internally?

As a brand, we have taken the position that essential oils are for external use only and should not be taken internally. We therefore will never state that any essential oil is food grade as this indicates that it is fit for human consumption.

Can it be used in a diffuser/oil burner?

Yes it can! :)

Can you use direct on the skin?

No we never recommend that any essential oil is used direct on the skin. Always dilute with a carrier, even when using in the bath.

Is it antibacterial (or any other medicinal property)?

Due to legal restrictions, we are not allowed to make any medicinal claims about essential oils and their properties, even if there is scientific evidence that supports the claim.

Is it certified organic?

In the additional details section on the product page, you will see the cultivation listed in the attributes. It will state ‘certified organic’ and the program under which certification was obtained if the oil is certified organic.

Sometimes an oil will be derived from plants that have been organically grown but the producer doesn’t have organic certification (organic certification comes with a price that many producers choose not to obtain). This doesn’t mean the oil is of a lower quality and in fact the opposite can be true. The cultivation will state ‘organically grown’ if this is the case.

Wild-crafted/wild-harvested means that the plants have been harvested from the wild rather than a plantation.

Is it therapeutic grade?

Therapeutic grade is a term created to assist with marketing. There isn’t an official industry standard for therapeutic grade so we refuse to use this term.

Can it be used in a steam room or sauna?

Technically yes but if it is a public steam room or sauna then NO, because you don’t know the people sharing the steam room with you.

These people could be suffering from health issues or taking certain medication and using essential oils in the steam room with these people could cause unwanted negative and potentially serious effects.

Can it be used for massage?

Yes it can but always diluted with a carrier.

Learn More About Lemongrass Essential Oil

An aromatic perennial grass that speedily grows to around 4 ½ ft in height. Native to Asia there are two main chemotypes found. West Indian lemongrass is likely to have originated from Ceylon but is now cultivated and produced into essential oils throughout tropical Asia, the West India in Africa.

Paradoxically, East Indian lemongrass is now predominantly produced in western India too!

As a grass it’s emanates from the Graminiceae, the cereal family, so incredibly nurturing to humankind. Lemongrass grows in clumps and is often used for culinary use. It’s thick stiff stems reach out to slender leaves with a gently drooping point.

It is a close cousin to Ginger grass and Palma Rosa.
