Satthwa: Lemon-Grass Essential Oil | Review + How to Use

Hi Guys,
How are you all doing? 😊

So recently, I received Satthwa’s Lemongrass Essential Oil and probably this is like the third addition to my essential oils collection. Now, essential oils can resolve a lot of our daily incurred concerns but the question remains how to use them. Basically essential oils are highly concentrated and they are not to be used directly. The ideal way to use them is by mixing it with either carrier oil or diluting with a face mask concoction. Lemongrass is widely used within Asian states for its tangy-citrusy flavour; added within various curries to enhance their flavour. But it also has medicinal properties which I will share with you all in today’s post. Before moving on with "How lemongrass essential oil can be beneficial in your DIY stuff", let me introduce you first to the brand itself -

Satthwa means “pure” in Sanskrit and they stand by the motto “pure to the core”. Satthwa was started by Prashant in early 2016 with the introduction of Satthwa Premium Hair Oil.

Top Benefits of Lemongrass Essential Oil:
Lemongrass essential oil has many beneficial properties apart from the wonderful aroma which it infuses when used for aromatherapy. As the name implies, lemongrass smells just like lemons, but it is milder, sweeter and far less sour. Lemon-grass essential oil helps reduce muscle & Joint pain, relives anxiety & Insomnia, is antimicrobial & anti-fungal, is rich in Vitamin C and makes for an effective insect repellent as well.

How you can use Lemongrass Oil:

Works well for soothing out body pain Lemongrass Essential oil is known to help in soothing any soreness within the muscles or body. For tired feet after a day in heels, you can add few drops of lemongrass oil into your bathing salt and warm water mixture. Another easy means to use this is by mixing few drops into your choice of oil and you can use it for massaging the desired stiffed body parts.

A great Antiseptic Since lemongrass is endowed with antiseptic properties, you can incorporate it within your skincare; especially for people prone to acne. Lemongrass oil will make sure that the bacteria which causes acne is kept off guards. The simplest manner of using lemongrass essential oil for face is by mixing it in some plain/rose water. Preferably, use a spray nozzle bottle to ensure easy application. Make sure to shake each time before using this DIY lemongrass toner. If you are like me who can’t really go through much hassle, you can probably use few drops while creating a face mask concoction. In case you have oily skin, take out your favourite gel based moisturizer and pour two drops into it.

Aromatherapy with Diffuser The easiest form of using lemongrass would be to add few drops within your diffuser for that amazing citrusy fragrance to your room. If you’re more into scented candles, then sprinkle the oil onto the candle surface before burning it. This helps in relaxing your senses and in calming those annoying worldly thoughts like “Why the f*** my boss didn’t approve my amazing plan idea?” 

Insect repellent The natural means to keep mosquitoes and mosquito related health problems, then all you gotta do is add lemongrass essential oil to your favourite body lotion and slather it onto your skin. And B-A-M-N you’re good to explore the world without worry about mosquitoes! 

Reducing Pores of facial skinNot only does lemongrass help in keeping insects away; it also keeps away the acne causing bacteria. And the best part is that it can help you in reducing your facial skin’s pores. Mix it with some water and add in few drops to that and spritz this onto your face. This can replace your toners and you’d definitely see your pores & acne being reduced. 

Reducing Dandruff Lemongrass also helps in evading the dandruff issue. The best way to use it for treating dandruff is by mixing it to your weekly hair care routine. All you need to do is mix few drops of it into olive oil or coconut oil whichever you prefer. For most amazing results, try it with Satthwa’s Premium Hair Oil as it is an amalgamation of 9 beneficial oils which cater nutrition to your scalp and hair strand. 

Why to pick only Satthwa’s Essential Oils?

πŸ‘‰Because Satthwa’s Essential Oils are 100% Pure & Certified Organic.

Those essential oils which aren’t stated as “certified organic” are never completely pure. The reason being, the plants from which the essential oil is produced are sometime sprinkled with chemical fertilizers and pesticides which manage to protect the crop from getting eating by bugs. But these chemicals cannot be removed while making use of it for deriving essential oils. Thus, they aren’t 100% pure. The word “certified organic” is what you need to see for within the labels while purchasing essential oils. Comparatively, organic essential oils have much more potency and display quick results rather than the non-organic ones. Hope these little tips would help you next time when you think of adding to your cart some essential oils. Essential oils can be used in everyday routine of our lives but majority of us aren’t aware how each essential oil can be put to use. But of course, we have Google now to help us resolve every dilemma. 

(Disclaimer – Satthwa’s Lemongrass Essential Oil is 100% pure and thus highly concentrated. Do not use it directly upon your skin as it might give you an inflammation sensation. For that matter, DO NOT use any Essential oil directly!)

DIY Ideas with Satthwa's Lemongrass Essential Oil

The most neglected part of our body remains to be those hardworking feet. And for all that effort, they definitely deserve some pampering. You don't necessarily need to go through a complete pedicure process and mere soaking would do wonders to relieve your aching feet. So today, I shall share with you my feet soaking concoction which has worked wonders to calm down the torment that heels leave behind after a tiring day.

You Need -
♥ Some warm water within a tub or bucket
Bathing Salt
Lemongrass Essential Oil –
Desi Rose Petals (Optional) 

Let’s Begin -
 Take some warm water and pour in a spoonful of bathing salt
To this, add in a few drops of lemongrass essential oil. Lemongrass works as an anti-sceptic and shields from any fungal bacteria. Also, it works as a natural mosquito repellent.
 Mix them well and for going all fancy, you can incorporate Desi Rose petals also. Rose helps in calming any sort of inflammation and caters hydration. Although, a lot of us underestimate the desi rose petals, it is actually much more beneficial for the skin than the one you get from florists. Plus, you get them really cheap.

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks.

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„ I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” πŸ˜‚
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
