Lemongrass Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy

I did a lot of research as I prepared for the home-birth of my most recent child. I’m not terribly pain tolerant; I have had an epidural and also had children using no kind of pain relief – natural or otherwise. I figured why suffer though if I don’t have to? I discovered that Lemongrass essential oil is a natural analgesic (pain reliever). Not only that, but it’s known to be helpful with exhaustion, increasing mental alertness, balancing emotions and it has a sedative effect. Works for me; I wanted to be relaxed, comfortable, coherent, and emotionally stable while at the same time having the energy needed to birth my child. Not to mention, it’s one of the cheaper oils. Sounded perfect!

On the night when birthing time began I rubbed the Lemongrass oil on my ankles every 15 minutes or as I felt I needed it, I also enjoyed smelling its uplifting citrus aroma. The power of the Lemongrass along with my relaxation techniques and health I’d worked so hard to maintain – was a powerful combination.

I’ll tell you, it was a miracle! I have NEVER had such an enjoyable birthing experience. I have never been so physically and emotionally calm and spiritually present during a birth.

Something to keep in mind about pain is that it is not just physical; it’s also emotional and spiritual. What is SO wonderful about the oils is that they address all 3 of the components of pain. I think that’s why I had SUCH a fabulous, transcending, life changing birth experience with this birth more, than previous ones.

When using oils for birthing and pain reduction, keep in mind that everyone’s body chemistry is different. What worked well for me may not work well for you. With this in mind I also chose to have on hand White Fir. Essential Oils for Maternity is a great resource for further information on this topic.

Lemongrass Oil – A Healing Story by Tammy

Duck, duck, duck, it’s a goose egg. A couple of days ago my 6-year-old son got knocked flat on his back by his little brother; the result – a bloody goose egg the size of  half a golf ball on the back of his head. I quickly laid my son down and put Lavender Oil on his head because it is good for calming and bruising. Next, I visited my favorite essential oil reference site (www.everythingessential.me) to see what else I could do. There I found that Cypress Oil and Lemongrass Oil are a great addition to what I already did. The Cypress Oil with the Lavender Oil constricts the blood vessels; the Lemongrass Oil is great for killing pain. Soon thereafter my little guy was back outside, this time with his helmet on. The swelling and pain went down!

Lemongrass Oil – A Healing Story by Lucinda

Have you ever heard anyone call Lemongrass Oil “the poor man’s Deep Blue”? I heard that at the first doTERRA essential oil class I ever went to and it stuck. What that meant to me was that it has properties for relieving pain and is a very inexpensive oil.

When I dropped the lid to the washing machine on my finger Lemongrass Oil was the first oil that came to my mind and the only one I used. It was on my counter and I applied it immediately. Ouch! My finger was throbbing in pain! I was so thankful that I only had about a minute of intense pain because the oil worked so quickly! I didn’t have to get a glass of water, take a pill and wait 30 minutes for it to course through my system and take effect. I felt relief, I watched the swelling go down quickly and I am sure using Lemongrass Oil saved my fingernail.

You can actually look up “smashed finger” in the Modern Essentials guide-book and it recommends Lemongrass Oil first!

Lemongrass Oil – A Healing Story by Marcie

I too often sit with my legs crossed, which has led to one varicose vein on the outside of my thigh that is so embarrassing! I am currently treating it with Lemongrass, and in the past 2 weeks I have seen slight changes already! Not too bad for having this varicose vein for 8 years or so!

Lemongrass Oil – A Healing Story by Marcie

I often use Lemongrass Oil, sprinkled around my kitchen to keep ants away. I know it’s not technically a health issue, but we have HUGE ants, so I consider it a mental health issue.;) Lemongrass is also great sprinkled on my dogs as a deterrent to mosquitoes and ticks!

Lemongrass Oil – A Healing Story by Andrea

This could be my greatest testimonial. I had severe back pain for weeks and waited until I could barely get out of bed until I saw a doctor. The MRI revealed a cyst on my L5 and the fact that my L5 was also bulging caused the pain. I decided against invasive surgery and decided to go through a 30 part series on a decompression machine, physical therapy as well as massage. After spending over $8,000 I was still in pain. I felt defeated and as a pretty active person, also depressed as it had been over 8 months since I had exercised. Just as I was about to give up and spend thousands and thousands more on surgery, I was introduced to the healing power of essential oils. Today I am relatively pain-free due to topical applications of Lemongrass, Deep Blue, and Frankincense. I am forever grateful for this combination.

Maybe people my age shouldn’t play kickball, but Lemongrass was there, after I pulled something in my foot/calf area. I could still walk but it really hurt! I used it 3 times a day and the pain was gone in 3 days, just in time for the final game. (We won!)
