Over the centuries, lemongrass has been used in cooking, soaps and oils. Lemongrass began being cultivated and distilled for its exceptional aromatic properties in Kerala, India, in the late 1800s. The effect of lemongrass on the senses is said to be calming, renewing, refreshing and inspiring. We chose this as Candleberry's first essential oil candle specifically for its powerful fragrant properties. Renew, refresh and inspire your space with the "just cleaned" fragrance of powerful lemongrass.
