Bees love this scent as well
I love this scent. It is a bit overpowering but love it! Be aware that beekeepers use this scent to attract bees to a colony. We put some in our diffuser and went outside to work in the yard and we came in to about a dozen bees in the house. They found their way down the chimney and through the fireplace insert! We got most of them back outside safely. Definitely shows the purity of the RMO! Put some cedarwood EO in the mix and didnt have anymore guests :)

I’ve heard that some EOs are harmful to cats (Lemongrass being one of them) when diffused. Do you know if this is true? If so, which oils are they?
Valerie M on Aug 13, 2018

At this time, we have found insufficient research about using essential oils on or around domestic animals, including procedures and possible reactions. Because of this lack of research, we are unable to advise how to use essential oils with pets.

The websites below can be great tools. Keep in mind, we are not associated with these websites.

Is this okay to use on my face?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We would generally not recommend using Lemongrass Oil on your face as it is considered a "hot" oil and can cause irritation on sensitive areas. If you do choose to use it on your face, we recommend diluting it to a .5-1% dilution with a carrier oil and keeping it away from the eyes. A dilution chart can be found on our website under the "learn" tab.
Is this oil food grade in other words can I cook with it?
Walter W. on Apr 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly.

All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so.

If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.
