Dr. Bronner’s and the Benefits of Lemongrass

PLANT POWER: Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lemongrass Lime Pump Soap

August 21st, 2019

Not only a delicious, citrus ingredient in many Asian cooking recipes, but also a source of essential vitamins, Lemongrass is the glow-inducing skincare ingredient making its way into beauty regimens this season. With a refreshing aroma and a wealth of beauty benefits, the oils from the fibrous stalks of Lemongrass contain a surprising amount of wellbeing powers and are packed with vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, folate and vitamin C, as well as vital minerals such as magnesium, calcium and iron!

Lemongrass is antimicrobial meaning that it is a great cleanser for all types of skin, as it helps to kill bacteria and reduce inflamed skin. With antiseptic and astringent properties, lemongrass is the perfect skincare ingredient to maintain a healthy glow.

Better still, Lemongrass isn’t just for skin; it is also known for strengthening hair follicles and preventing hair loss. As a rich source of iron, Lemongrass is great for those suffering from anemia or other iron deficiencies which can also result in hair loss. Moreover, Lemongrass can be used as a treatment for oily hair, as it helps to eliminate and reduce the production of excess oils. It also works well with other essential and carrier oils helping to create the best hair treatment for all your hair needs!

Dr. Bronner’s 4-in-1 Organic Lemongrass Lime Pump Soap is great for washing hands, face, body & hair! Place it by your sink or in the shower. To wash hair work one pump of Organic Pump Soap into wet hair until it lathers, then rub and rinse. Repeat for thicker or longer hair. After washing, follow up with a lightly acidic conditioning rinse, like Dr. Bronner’s Citrus Organic Hair Rinse to leave hair silky smooth! Don’t have our Organic Hair Rinse? Use diluted apple cider vinegar or lemon juice instead!
