Sometimes also known as "citronella grass", lemongrass essential oil can be pale yellow to vivid yellow in color. It is part of the grass plant family and is normally grown in Asian, African and Australian tropical island type climates. It is most widely used in the culinary world to make Asian and Caribbean dishes such as teas, soups and curries. It is appealing to these cultures because of its slight lemony flavor and aroma. It blends well with bergamot, clary sage, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, sweet orange, patchouli, rosemary and tea tree essential oils.

Purity and Grading
All of our essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted oils. We strive to source the highest quality oils from established, reputable suppliers that value purity, sustainability and natural practices. We are often questioned by customers whether our oils are “therapeutic grade”.
The term “therapeutic grade” was created and trademarked by newer essential oil companies to differentiate their products from others on the market. The truth of the matter is that the Food and Drug Administration does not certify the quality of essential oils as “therapeutic grade” nor do they provide a certifying label. GloryBee Essential Oils provide the same quality, purity, and reputability as therapeutic grade oils – often times at a lower prices.
