For the past couple months I have surrounded myself with the refreshing lemongrass scent: soap, lotion, and candles. I love the citrus-y smell, but overall it just makes me feel happy. It was great to learn that this feeling has proven benefits. Lemongrass has long been documented to elicit balancing, uplifting and restorative sensations. It’s even been noted as a headache remedy.
Our “Stress, Dry Skin, Insomnia, Oh My” post (2-28-12) explained a bit about the 1st and 2nd chakras. Interesting, lemongrass is supportive of the third (solar plexus) chakra. Located in the body’s core, the 3rd chakra is the body’s power center and provides a balance between the mind and emotions.
While a balanced 3rd chakra allows us to display a strong will power, a creative spirit, and healthy digestive system, sometimes life runs amuck. Feeling overwhelmed and indecisive? Experiencing low self-esteem? These may be indicative of a blocked third chakra. The refreshing scent of lemongrass and bringing the color yellow (try our buttercream baby buddha bowl for your snacks or tea!) into your surroundings can help balance this chakra.
