I love mint, from the taste to the cooling feeling on the skin. When I am choosing my own Beneficial Blends, I tend to choose ones that include peppermint. For example, Grapefruit + Peppermint is probably my shower favorite. Interestingly, lemongrass was never on my radar. Of course, I love what it can do for the skin, but the scent never stood out. Have you ever noticed how your tastebuds can change as you get older? I never used to like onions. Now I love them. The same holds true for your olfactory preferences.
I am all about Lemongrass now. There is just something about the scent. It's citrusy, but not like a straight lemon. It has a warm, herbaceous to it as well. I am in love with its smell.
I know I am not alone! Raise your hand if you wish you could find a good lemongrass lotion. I see you and I agree. That is something I love about our Beneficial Blends -- you can choose to have a single note added to your Seed favorites -- so if you want a true lemongrass body lotion, you can have us add in Lemongrass. Do yourself a favor and get it in the Body Wash and oil, too. You'll want to wrap yourself up in its gorgeous scent.

Lemongrass Facial Care Benefits
As it is antibacterial, it may help to lessen acne flare ups and act as an astringent to help tone and clarify the skin. It may also help temporarily give pores a smaller appearance. Excess sebum may be better controlled by using products containing lemongrass as opposed to stronger ingredients that will strip the skin on its natural oils. Additionally, Lemongrass shows anti-fungal properties, so if you have skin issues caused by a fungus, it may help improve the visible effects. Check out our lemongrass facial options here and here.
