- Antifungal treatment:Â for foot fungal infections, you may apply the oil neat on the affected area (try to avoid areas with healthy skin, as the oil can cause irritation). Apply the oil using a cotton bud if possible. Otherwise for other areas of the body, dilute 1Â drop of the essential oil in every teaspoon of carrier oil, and apply topically to the affected area. If your skin gets irritated, either discontinue use or dilute it further until your skin can tolerate the oil better.
- Use in a room diffuser – you’ll feel like you’re at a spa, without even having to leave your home. 🙂
- Pregnant women are advised not to use lemongrass essential oil as it may affect foetal development.
- Do not use on children below the age of 2 years.
