Lemongrass essential oil side effects include skin sensitization (bright red rashes on light skin and darker areas on dark skin). In addition, lemongrass tends to cause more allergic reactions in people than other essential oils. For this reason, the oil should be diluted to levels no greater than 0.7%. We recommend using a 0.5% dilution rate (1 drop of oil per 2 teaspoons of carrier oil).
- Don’t use lemongrass oil on damaged skin, with children younger than 2, or while pregnant.
- Don’t use undiluted essential oils on your skin. Dilute them with a carrier oil first (100% organic cold pressed jojoba oil is an ideal choice). For lemongrass, do not exceed a 0.5% dilution. Perform a patch test to check for allergic reactions.
- Don’t use an essential oil diffuser for longer than 20 to 30 minutes.
- Don’t use essential oils near eyes or mucous membranes.
- Store essential oils out of reach from children and pets.
- Do not ingest essential oils.
- Wash your hands after using essential oils.
