Very Strong and Beautiful Fragrance

This is the first time I've purchased Lemongrass Essential Oil from Henna Sooq... this Lemongrass Oil is much heavier & stronger scented than Lemongrass Oils I've purchased from other companies. I am so in love with this fragrance and can't believe the difference in the potency of the scent it has. I am so happy with all of my Essential Oil purchases from Henna Sooq. The quality, fragrance, and performance of these oils are unmatched. They are all definite keepers, now I must try some of the others. :)
Love the great smell!!

I add this to my baths for a great smell that really relaxes me. It is also a great addition to my henna hair dye to make my hair smell delicious!
Co-mingles well and enhances other scents

I was hooked on this scent when I received the Sweet Honey Shampoo Bar. The aromas of honey and lemongrass are tantalizing. Using a little grape seed oil as my base, I added a few drops to stargazer lily scented body wash and an a facial moisturizer I made using grated orange peel. My face is oily in the T-zone, but dry in winter. The scents co-mingle and enhance each other, yet each remains distinct. I even added a drop when I rinsed some hand washable sweaters. They smelled as if they'd dried in the sunshine. The scent is very mellow, not harsh at all. I will definitely be repurchasing.
Good product for oily skin

I started using this product about 10 days ago and am so far quite satisfied with it.
I mix it with Camellia oil and put it overnight on my face and body skin. I put 1 drop Lemongrass oil in half a cup Camellia for my face and about 10 for body.
Believe it or not, this oil concoction works wonderfully on my oily, acne-prone skin. After trying every possible commercial cream I decided to go natural and am very satisfied with this regimen. My skin looks more compact and blemishes go away much faster than with usual products. I think my skin (face and legs especially) also looks much brighter.
Also, this oil mix absorbs well and smells nice --- even though the smell can be quite strong if one is not careful with dosage.
I don't give it 5 stars because it can be a little irritating if you put too much, the smell can be overpowering and I couldn't find a good use for my hair: it makes them too heavy, unfortunately. But I'll keep experimenting and maybe update the review.
All in all, for oily skin this mix is amazing and I would totally recommend it to everybody!
