HOW TO USE
Add about 4-5 drops of Iryasa Lemongrass oil for every 100ml (3.3 fl.oz) water in a diffuser. The herby, citrusy scent of this medicinal grass helps purify the air and remove bad odours, while reducing tension & uplifting your mood.
You may need to increase/decrease the number of drops depending on the size of the room and where your diffuser is kept. For instance, you'd probably need less number of drops for a smaller or less ventilated room. Since the intensity of scents are such a personal preference, we recommend that you start with less and work your way up as needed.

When Lemongrass oil is applied topically, it cleanses the skin and helps repel mosquitoes & sandflies.
