So Im trying to start mixin up my own stuff and I wanted to buy lavender however my husband thought that whole foods price of ten dollars was too much.........:neutral: so lemongrass was the cheaper choice. Everything Ive been reading shows lemongrass for oily skin or hair??? Which is the exact opposite of what I want and need. Has anyone else tried lemongrass? how did it turn out??

    I mix my shea butter with lemon eo! Is that the same as lemongrass? But yeah I haven't had any bad effects, it's worked perfectly for me!

    Lemon eo and lemongrass eo come from different places. I believe lemon eo comes from the actual peel or seed of the lemon whereas lemongrass eo comes from the leaves of a type of grass. They both smell not too much different to me.

    I'd agree with your husband on the price of that lavender. I got mine for around $5 for an ounce bottle. I got it last year and I still have it.

    In my experience, essential oils don't really do much for the actual hair. They do more for the scalp and adding scent to a product than anything else.
