Lemongrass Essential oil, also known as Citronella oil is extracted from the leaves of Citronella grass and has been used in medicine for thousands of years
Recent studies suggest that several essential oils have the ability to kill MRSA and Lemongrass is one of those oils.
During my battle with MRSA I found Lemongrass essential oil to be very effective so I can hand on heart say that it worked for me.
What are the benefits of Lemongrass Essential Oil?
The properties of Lemongrass essential oil that are of medicinal importance include but are not limited to:
For these reasons it is effective in killing a whole stack of “nasties”, not just MRSA.
Is it safe to use?
Lemongrass essential oil is perfectly safe when used topically (on the skin), however people with sensitive skin may want to dilute it in a carrier oil such as Olive oil first. This dilution is also required if you intend to use the oil on areas where the skin is more sensitive such as the groin and/or armpits.
I might as well add at this time that Lemongrass essential oil is harmful if swallowed which is why I only suggest that it be used for topical treatment of boils and/or MRSA.
As mentioned earlier, it is also very effective against other “nasties” so it can be uses for other conditions.
Where can I find Lemongrass essential oil?
In “pure” form, Lemongrass essential oil can be found at most shops that sell essential oils and it may sometimes be stocked at certain health stores.
You can also usually source it from a natural health practitioner.
Personally I found it easier to just buy it online and have it delivered. There are literally thousands of online retailers that sell Lemongrass essential oil including Amazon.
Due to its antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic qualities, like Tea Tree, it is also often found in natural soap and shampoo products.
How can I use it to treat MRSA?
As I’m sure you would have guessed, I personally used Lemongrass essential oil extensively during my battle with MRSA as a topical treatment.
I frequently used Lemongrass essential oil to cleanse the wound or boil prior to applying the other product, usually mixed with Tea Tree oil.
I also used Lemongrass during my inhalations which I used to target the MRSA colonizing my nasal cavity.
I found these inhalations to be very effective.
Do I recommend the use of Lemongrass as an MRSA treatment?
Yes I do. Lemongrass oil was one of my “staples” throughout my battle with MRSA and as mentioned, I regularly combined it with Tea Tree oil as either a topical treatment or an inhalation.
When used with another oil (or oils) in this fashion, it’s like fighting with two fists instead of one.
I hope this advice helps you on your recovery from MRSA and feel free to leave a comment below.
