How to Use

For Aromatherapy

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.

For Topical Application

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

Dilute 4 drops of 100% pure Lemongrass oil in 15ml (0.5 fl.oz) of Sweet Almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil to make a 1% dilution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Lemongrass smell citrusy?

The main chemical constituent in Lemongrass are aldehydes. Aldehydes are responsible for the citrusy scent in Lemongrass. It is also what makes Lemongrass calming and anti-inflammatory, whose effects are best experienced when diluted with carrier oils at low concentrations (1% dilution or less).

How did Lemongrass get its name?

Lemongrass is a tropical, perennial plant with fleshy white stems that are used widely in Southeast Asian cuisine. The name ‘lemongrass’ is derived from the typical citrusy ‘lemon-like’ scent of the essential oil. The leaves of this plant look more like ‘grass’, hence the name ‘lemongrass’.

Why is Lemongrass also known as the ‘Fever grass’?

Lemongrass has the ability to reduce body temperature and therefore, called ‘fever grass’ in some cultures. The leaves of this plant also make ‘fever tea’ that is commonly used to reduce high body temperatures, eliminate harmful bacteria and strengthen the body during convalescence.

Dilution Guide

Most websites/blogs mention about diluting essential oils before topical application. While this is correct, it is not sufficient!

Use the guide below to get started on your DIY blending journey.

Interpreting the charts

Step 1: As per age group, please take note of the recommended and maximum dilution percentages.

Step 2: Based on the amount of carrier oil, you can find the corresponding number of essential oil drops to be used to achieve the dilution you require e.g., for 1% dilution in 30ml of carrier oil, use 8 drops of same/different essential oils.


Always perform a 24 hour period patch test at the recommended dilution levels or lesser, as per the age group to check for any allergic reaction or skin sensitivities.

While the dilution percentages work for most of our essential oils, we strongly recommend that you read the safety precautions listed for each oil before you craft the blend.
