In India it is known as 'choomana poolu' and is also referred to as 'Indian Verbena' or 'Indian Melissa oil' and used in Ayurvedic medicine. Lemongrass oil is extracted from the fresh or partly dried leaves by steam distillation. It is a valuable ingredient in perfumes and fine organic soaps and beauty preparations.

Indigofera Beauty Solutions:
Indigofera has always recognized the benefits of the Earth's gifts through essential oils. We first used lemongrass in the Nourishing Hair Serum, formally know as (Jojoba Hair Oil). When our clients began to rave about the scent, we decided to infused the Organic Hair Souffle' formally, (Silky Soufflé) and Botanical Hairdress with lemongrass too. Indigofera offers lavender, peppermint, ylang-ylang, orange, lemon, lime in our aromatherapy blends. Due to its uplifting and revitalizing properties, Lemongrass has become Indigofera's signature aroma for Hair Care Rituals.

Be Radiantly Beautiful,
