Lemongrass Oil

Lemongrass is abundant in health benefits rich in medicinal properties, it relieves pain a natural analgesics and is popularly used in aromatherapy. So Lemongrass essential oil helps fight inflammation, relieves pain in muscles and joints, as well as toothaches and headaches resulting from viral infections like coughs, colds, influenza, fevers, and various poxes. It also helps reduce general body pain resulting from strenuous activities and athletics. The antiseptic properties of Lemongrass oil make it a good application for external and internal wounds as well as a useful ingredient in antiseptic lotions and creams. The antiseptic properties of this oil do not let the external or internal cuts and wounds become septic. It also gives deep nourishment for your skin as it is a powerful moisturiser. Its natural antiseptic properties, the oil can disinfect the pores and kill bacteria.

A 2011 study documented that when it comes to pain, Lemongrass essential oil can relieve problems and ailments like headaches, muscle cramps, spasms and rheumatisms. Lemongrass oil improves blood circulation which makes it excellent for relieving muscle cramps, sprains, and painful muscle spasms. In Ayurveda, arthritis treatment involves aiming the warm steam from Lemongrass infused boiling water at the affected joints. The warmth from the steam helps the oil penetrate deep into the joints and tissues, providing enduring pain relief. So, are you starting to see the picture and how powerful this balm could be for you? As a diuretic, lemongrass oil also helps draw out extra fluid from the tissues, helping to control inflammation caused by ailments such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Cajeput Oil

Native to Australia, Malaysia, and Indonesia, the Cajuput tree is in the same family as the Tee tree- melaleuca. It is a warming, soothing, restorative ingredient in this powerful balm.  Cajeput oil is steam distilled from the twigs and leaves of the Cajeput tree and the paper bark tree. Cajeput Oil has many health benefits but let’s focus on its topical benefits in the balm... It's known to be analgesic in nature, meaning that it reduces the feeling and sensations of pain. Applied locally Cajeput is a great natural pain reliever that can alleviate any ache. The warming effect of Cajeput oil helps promote circulation and improving the functioning of your organs and activating vital secretions. Cajeput Oil promotes secretion of the endocrine glands while encouraging our sweat glands. By encouraging healthy perspiration, you effectively remove the toxins from your body.

Inhaling Cajeput Oil’s healing vapours when sniffing the balm eases congestion, restlessness, or you can just experience with it for its refreshing uplifting scent. It not only alleviates pain but also helps to reduce inflammation. Cajeput essential oil is considered an antispasmodic, meaning it soothes muscle cramps. Cajeput is one of the effective anti-bite and sting elements in the balm, rubbing it on your skin will repel insects, particularly mosquitoes. Finally as if just the topical benefits of Cajeput Oil weren’t enough the antibacterial properties of this oil not only prevent infection and blemishes, but it also helps to tone the skin while revealing a radiant glow. Cajeput is often used in commercial cosmetics and antiseptic creams for these very reasons.

The Camphor Tree - Providing another Powerful element in this Balm

Powerful Ingredients part 1

This Buddhist Temple Lemongrass Balm works so deeply, so effectively because of its ancient, tried and tested ingredients. It comes from a place where function and effect are more important than the look and packaging. It has to work and would have vanished many years ago if it wasn't trusted in Thai culture. The ingredients work synergistically and Lemongrass and Cajeput are just part of the story. There is so much more to this incredible green balm. It is also important we mention each of the following elements of the Balm each have so many more benefits than we list, we have just summarised their topical benefits as that’s mostly why they are present in this Supernatural Balm.

Camphor... is a terpene (an organic compound) a potent and effective element of high quality lotions, Balms, Creams and Ointments. Traditionally it has been used topically to relieve pain, irritation, and itching. It creates numbness of sensory nerve endings of skin, thereby relieving pain and inflammation, and preventing skin redness. On our skin it acts as a counter irritant and is therefore used topically to relieve pain and swelling. It helps in relieving the pain and inflammation, which is a symptom of eczema. Also the fragrance of Camphor oil has a calming effect on the mind and when used at night can promote a good night’s sleep.

Eucalyptus... Well-researched eucalyptus oil relieves pain and reduces inflammation. It can help to reduce muscle pain, nasal congestion, soreness and swelling. It also might help to alleviate respiratory issues.  A randomised clinical trial investigated the effects of inhaling eucalyptus oil on pain and inflammatory responses after total knee replacement surgery. Patients inhaled the Eucalyptus oil for 30 minutes during rehabilitation on 3 consecutive days. Then pain, blood pressure and heart rate scores were reported. Researchers found that pain scores on all 3 days, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels on the second day were significantly lower. Eucalyptus oil inhalation can be used as “a nursing intervention for pain relief.” So breathe in this balm’s gorgeous scent when you rub it in. Alone it relieves insect bites, relieves skin irritations and along with peppermint, is one of the best essential oils for headaches.

Peppermint Oil... A very effective natural painkiller and muscle relaxant. It also has cooling, invigorating and antispasmodic properties. Peppermint oil is especially helpful in alleviating a tension headache, in one clinical trial performing as well as acetaminophen. A study shows that peppermint oil applied topically has pain relief benefits associated with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. Researchers found that peppermint and eucalyptus oils may be helpful because they work as topical analgesics. Guess what... they're present in our Buddha Balm!

Citronella Oil... Often confused with Lemongrass, Citronella oil has been used for centuries in China, Indonesia and Sri Lanka to help decrease rashes, inflammation, infections, pain and other health conditions. Citronella has a citrusy scent that can be both uplifting and relaxing. In fact, research has shown that citronella oil seems to activate both parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous activity. Citronella helps kill germs and fungi on the skin and also promote wound healing. So the benefits topically include stress reduction, antibacterial or antiseptic action, and skin rejuvenation. It's also one of the most common aromatherapy oils making it another reason why this balm smells so good when you apply it and massage it in. Citronella can be confused for lemongrass...  The Citronella plant, aka "mosquito plant" resembles its relative, the lemongrass plant. The oils derived from these plants also have a similar scent, uses and benefits, but they are definitely two very different plants and oils with different and impressive benefits but remember with this balm... You have both and more!

Lemongrass Balm… Closing Thoughts

I’ve been using this extraordinary massage aroma balm for years. This handmade balm contains all-natural ingredients that seem to have a sedative and calming effect. It might also reduce the growth of some viruses and bacteria. Lemongrass essential oil comes from the lemongrass plant, which grows in tropical and subtropical parts of the world. The essential oil can be bright or pale yellow with a thin consistency and a lemony, refreshing scent. It is the main active ingredient of Ancient Purity’s Lemongrass Balm. People have used Lemongrass in traditional medicine for pain relief, stomach problems, and fevers. Its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal properties may also give it other benefits. In addition, this balm might reduce muscular aches, stiffness and itchiness. You can inhale the scent to reduce the discomfort of a serious hangover. 

“A must have oil: Lemongrass can give you a boost when you are too tired to think clearly.” - Amy Leigh Mercree, Essential Oils Handbook: Recipes for Natural Living

''I landed in 1980 in Bangkok, and I stopped to eat ten times between the airport and the hotel. It was all lemongrass and ginger and chilies.'' - Author: Jean-Georges Vongerichten
