Profile

Cymbopogon flexuosus is a perennial fast-growing aromatic grass, growing to about 4 ft high, with long, thin leaves. It produces a network of roots and rootlets that rapidly exhaust the soil. Lemongrass Essential Oil is steam distilled from the grass. The color of the oil is yellow or amber. It has a very strong, fresh, grassy, herb-like, citrus aroma. 

Also known as East Indian Lemongrass, it is a native to India. Lemongrass has been used as a culinary herb, and traditionally used as a medicine for infectious diseases and fever in the regions in which it grows. The oil remains one of the most heavily produced essential oils, used in soap, laundry, and household perfumes. 

BIBLICAL OIL: “What we know today as Lemongrass was once known as ‘sweet cane,’ or ‘calamus.’ In Biblical times, calamus was used in perfumes, incense, and as an ingredient in the special holy anointing oil used by the priests in the temple.” (Dr. Josh Axe, DC, DMN, CNS. Bible Oils: 12 most revered oils & their historic uses)

AUROMA QUALITY

AUROMA Essential Oils are the highest quality essential oils available in the world today. Each oil is from an individual farmer and from a particular year’s harvest. As AUROMA knows each of the Farmers, they guarantee the authenticity of each oil. Just to be certain, they analyze each oil using the latest state-of-the-art GC-MS technology, which can detect impurities to one part per billion. Yes! AUROMA represents the best there is in Essential Oils. We can supply the following documentation: Certificates of Analysis and Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.
