A key ingredient in our RICH AUNTEA blend, we are delighted to add it to our product lineup. With each slender leaf, you're embracing a slice of nature's bounty and inviting its invigorating essence into your everyday rituals.Lemongrass has traditionally been used as a pain reliever and fever reducer. Lemongrass contains citral, a natural plant compound with anti-inflammatory effects.

Simple DIY Lemongrass and Aloe Vera Insect Repellant Spray:

 

This recipe harnesses the natural properties of these ingredients to create an effective and skin-friendly repellent.

 

Ingredients:

- 1 cup boiled water

- 2 tablespoons dried lemongrass

- 1/4 cup aloe vera gel (organic, if possible)

- Spray bottle

 

Instructions:

 

1. Create Lemongrass Infusion:

   - Place dried lemongrass in a heatproof container.

   - Pour 1 cup of just-boiled water over the dried lemongrass.

   - Let the mixture steep for about 30 minutes, allowing the lemongrass to infuse its oils into the water.

 

2. Strain the Infusion:

   - Use a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to strain the lemongrass-infused water into a bowl or measuring cup. Discard or compost the used lemongrass.

 

3. Mix with Aloe Vera Gel:

   - Combine the lemongrass-infused water with 1/4 cup of aloe vera gel. Mix well to ensure even distribution.

 

4. Transfer to Spray Bottle:

   - Using a funnel, pour the mixture into a clean spray bottle. Leave a small space at the top for shaking.

 

5. Shake Well and Apply:

   - Before each use, give the spray bottle a good shake to ensure the ingredients are well combined.

   - Spray the repellent onto exposed skin and clothing, avoiding contact with eyes and mouth.

   - Reapply as needed, especially if you're sweating or staying outdoors for an extended period.

 

Note:

- This recipe doesn't include essential oils, making it a gentle option for those with sensitivity to essential oils.

- Aloe vera provides a moisturizing effect, but it's still recommended to moisturize your skin after sun exposure.
