When Life Gives You Lemons...

A bowl of lemons on a blue picnic table.

The old saying that begins with “when life gives you lemons” seems to indicate that lemons are a bad thing. Here at Yahwehs Naturals, it has been our experience that lemons, especially lemongrass essential oil, is a really GOOD thing! Here are five reasons why:

1. It is anti-fungal. One study showed that lemongrass essential oil helps to kill the fungi responsible for athlete’s foot and ringworm.

2. Like to cook with onions and garlic? This oil is a great way to remove kitchen smells from hands!

3. It is antibacterial and antiviral, so it’s beneficial for killing germs, both on hands and in the air.

4. Feeling a bit anxious or sad? Lemongrass Essential Oil helps release serotonin, so it’s a natural mood booster.

5. It’s a natural bug repellent!

Lemongrass Essential Oil has a fresh, clean, citrusy fragrance that is not overpowering. It’s like a ray of sunshine all throughout your home!

At Yahwehs Naturals, we have incorporated this wonderful fragrance into 2 of our products:

Yahwehs Naturals Lemongrass Poppyseed soap.

Lemongrass Poppyseed Soap makes a wonderful addition to your kitchen or bathroom. The oil helps to absorb any foul odors, while leaving behind its antibacterial and antiviral properties.

Made with organic Shea butter, this soap also helps to moisturize and protect hands from over-drying, making it safe to use even if you wash hands frequently. In the shower or bath, the poppyseeds offer a gentle exfoliation, while the natural fragrance boosts your mood!

Coming soon is our new DEFENDER Room Purifying Spray! This non-aerosol, fine mist spray is a terrific way to freshen bedding, pillows, shoes or drapes. It can also be used in the shower, kitchen, closets or car – anywhere you’d like to deodorize and purify the air. Your home will smell fresh and clean, and you won’t have to worry about being overpowered by chemical fragrances that can lead to headaches or breathing issues.

Our Lemongrass products are non-toxic, naturally derived, cruelty free and Made in the USA. So, next time “life gives YOU lemons”, visit our website and grab some Lemongrass products for yourself. Your home will thank you for it!
