Products with a Purpose

Healing Elements is our number one selling product due to its multitude of uses. We’ve now expanded our line of products with a purpose with two new items: Recovery Balm and Soothing Balm! These new balms are perfect for a massage, which has been shown to improve overall wellbeing by easing physical and mental tension. Both balms feature a blend of apricot kernel oil, olive oil and beeswax to melt into the skin.

Put a spring back in your step with Recovery Balm! Known for their relieving and comforting properties, the certified organic blend of clove, arnica, cardamom and cinnamon essential oils warm up as the balm is gently worked into skin. Target sore muscles, stiff joints and tension caused by sports injuries. Don’t let strains and sprains keep you from staying active. Studies have shown regular massage can help ease the stiffness and pain associated with arthritis.

Recovery Balm is recommended for ages 10 and up due to the small percentage of cinnamon and clove essential oils.

Soothing Balm features peppermint and menthol known for their refreshing and uplifting properties. Massage Soothing Balm onto your chest and upper extremities to quickly alleviate congested nasal passages. Sinus sufferers will find relief from utilizing this on pulse points or a tiny bit under the nose. Derived from the herbs peppermint, eucalyptus and pennyroyal, organic menthol can also aid in reducing itching and inflammation as its absorbed through the skin.

Soothing Balm is recommended for ages 2 and up due to the menthol and peppermint essential oils.

Essential Oil Lover’s Guide to Diffusing

Many archeological discoveries have shown evidence of plant extracts being used for religious and medicinal purposes, and ancient texts reference the use of plant extracts for physical and psychological wellbeing. Early distillation of plant extracts, similar to modern-day essential oils, is credited to Persians around the 10th century, but much of what we know about the beginning of aromatherapy has been learned from ancient Egyptian culture where evidence of burned plant resins, balms and oils have been found in tombs, hieroglyphics and other ruins.

Aromatherapy has evolved since ancient times, and we have only begun discovering the science behind how plant essences benefit our physical and psychological health. Enhancing mood is one of aromatherapy’s most understood benefits. Have you ever smelled your favorite flower or baked goods and couldn’t help but smile? Create a romantic, uplifting, relaxing or other desirable ambiance by diffusing essential oils in your home or car. People diffuse oils purely for the love of a scent, aromatherapy benefits or both. Whatever your reason, it is recommended you use an electric nebulizer or diffuser (steam or fan) to maintain the molecular integrity of the compound because essential oils can breakdown if exposed to heat. On August 15, Lemongrass Spa Products is releasing three new diffuser choices: Welcome Home Ultrasonic Diffuser (steam), Lattice Diffuser (fan) and Wall Diffuser (fan) to go along with our popular Car Diffuser (fan).

Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the diffuser to enjoy the aroma throughout your home or car. Along with your favorite individual essential oils and blends, here are ten different combinations to try:Wall_Diffuser_1.jpg

 Do you have a favorite essential oil combination for your diffuser? Let me know in the comments!

Skincare Tips for Men

Men’s grooming and maintenance habits are not always at the top of the list to talk about when discussing elaborate skincare routines. However, when I was in school, a teacher made a statement that has made a huge impact on how I view skincare as a whole. She stated that “Skin is skin is skin.” Meaning whether you are male or female, oily or dry, or all types of different skin tones, all skin needs basic care and can benefit from a daily routine.  It ensures the skin stays healthy, nourished and youthful. Men’s skin experiences issues such as irritation from shaving, acne, dry or oiliness and also aging. Below is a four-step simple skincare routine geared towards men using products from our Men’s Essentials and Private Reserve collections. Our Private Reserve line is scented with notes of sandalwood and musk using safe phthalate free fragrance. The Men’s Essential line is an all essential oils blend of spruce, birch and sandalwood. You can share this information with any man in your life when gifting him any of our men’s products.

Step One

Cleanse the skin with either our Men’s Essentials Cleansing Gel or Private Reserve Bar Soap. The cleansing gel soothes and calms irritated skin, but is good for all skin types, and the Private Reserve Bar Soap is an all in one cleanser for face and body.

Step Two

If you are planning to shave, apply our Men’s Essentials Shaving Crème formulated with shea butter and aloe for the smoothest shaving experience.

Benefits of Exfoliation

Exfoliation is one the easiest steps you can add to your skincare routine to see immediate results; it instantly brightens and evens out your complexion, giving you a more youthful appearance. There are three different forms of exfoliation. The first two are chemical and enzymatic exfoliation. The third is manual, which is the category Lemongrass Spa Facial Polish and Microdermabrasion Crème fall under. Manual exfoliation is the process of using ingredients such as pumice, walnut shells, salt, sugar or even jojoba beads to manually buff away dead skin cells. Manual exfoliation can also mean using different types of materials such as washcloths, sponges or boucle pads to physically eliminate dead skin.

Exfoliating products have recently been in the spotlight due to the negative impact of toxic ingredients such as microplastic beads are having on the environment. Microplastic beads are used for exfoliation , and these beads are not biodegradable or environmentally friendly. They wash down the drain and into waterways, and biologists are finding these beads in fish and other marine animals and are documenting the negative impact on our ecosystems. Lemongrass Spa uses one hundred percent natural, biodegradable and environmentally friendly exfoliating ingredients in their body and facial polishes and Microdermabrasion Crème. We also offer a cotton boucle pad to use with our cleansing gels or soaps as another form of exfoliation. During the months of June and July enjoy one of our three exfoliating facial products below at Buy One, Get One Half Off!

Microdermabrasion CrèmeF5620_large.jpg

Soften age spots and smooth fine lines with deep exfoliating, volcanic microcrystals suspended in a conditioning crème. Gently polish skin at home once or twice per week. This is a gentle alternative to chemical peels and harsh resurfacing. Enhanced with green tea, chamomile, licorice root and sunflower seed oil for added nutrients and anti-aging properties. Not recommended for extra-sensitive or thinning skin.

Don’t Sweat It…We’ve Got You Covered!

I don’t know about you, but having underarm odor is one of the most embarrassing things for a girl or a guy. Having to avoid someone with bad body odor is hard to cover up. As a teenager or as an adult, this awkward situation is something that can be avoided with the right combination of products.

Did you know that sweat is actually odorless inside the body?

When perspiration is exposed to the atmosphere chemical changes happen. Bacteria on the surface processes the perspiration, causing odor. On average people have 3 to 4 million sweat glands! It’s no wonder Americans are obsessed with great smelling sprays, perfumes, deodorants and antiperspirants!

There are two sweat glands, the eccrine and apocrine. Things like exercise, stress, eating spicy food, hormones, diseases, taking strong medication, running a fever, gastro problems and prolonged infections cause these glands to work overtime to cool off our bodies.

To reduce odor, bacteria on the skin should either be eliminated or out run by good bacteria to create a friendly, less odiferous environment. Good hygiene can go a long way in reducing odor as well as avoiding caffeine, spicy foods and even red meat.
