My Dearest Lemongrass Essential Oil,
I’ve been holding back my feelings for some time, but I can’t stay silent any longer. I must tell you… I love you! Your enticing aroma, your exotic origins, and your relaxing presence all make me fall for you more deeply each day.
Elizabeth Barret Browning once penned, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” She gave Robert Browning eight beautiful and endearing reasons why she loved him, but I adore you so much, I’ll give you nine.
1. Your Heritage
You thrive in warm, humid, and exciting places, and so do I. That’s why we make such a great pair. You remind me of my college trip to Thailand, where the sights, smells, and sounds gave me a sense of wonder every day. You allow me to experience those same feelings no matter where I am.
2. Your Scent
I can’t get enough of your exhilarating aroma. When I put you in my diffuser or spritz you over my linens, you linger long after. Your unique scent is like nothing else - sweet and citrusy with a subtle hint of earthy undertones.
3. Your Presence
Even after the most hectic day, you have an astonishing ability to help me calm down. When I catch a trace of your inspiring aroma during my deep breathing exercises, I feel more relaxed than I have in hours. Your companionship during my daily meditation helps bring me calm and clarity.
4. Your Teamwork
Not only do I love you, but so many others do too!
5. Your Never-Ending Support
You help me remember my goals to use fewer harsh chemicals in my cleaning products and look for more plant-based solutions. Here’s my favorite way you help freshen up the house:
Add 10 drops to a glass spray bottle.
Combine with water.
Spritz to freshen carpets and furniture.
6. Your Cleanliness
With your bright and refreshing scent, you really inspire a positive outlook, and I finally enjoy cleaning! After turning on some catchy music, you and I get so much done when I add 3 - 4 drops to a sink full of dishes, a load of laundry, or my all-purpose cleaner.
7. Your Charisma
I hate when I’m keyed up after a workout. A personal post-sweat session massage is my favorite thing, but it’s only because of your relaxing smell.
8. Your Glow
I have to say - I might love you most for your skin-cleansing benefits. I feel more confident than ever since I started adding you to my nightly skin care regimen. I get more compliments now than ever, and I don’t know if it’s because of my appearance or the happiness you bring into my life. Probably both!
9. Your Taste
Not only do you smell amazing, but when I use you in my tea, life can’t get much better. You add a light, complex flavor that makes for a perfect way to end the night while I unwind with a book.
With all my love and admiration,
A devoted Lemongrass user
