What are the skin benefits?
Lemongrass essential oil has astringent cleansing benefits helping to dissolve oils on your skin. This essential oil naturally contracts open pores resulting in less oil on the skin and less dirt, so the skin feels healthier and smooth. So, when used either as facial or body soap bar the results are a better complexion and toned skin.

What are the benefits of using lemon soap?
The uplifting scent is truly amazing. Like other lemon scents such as lemon verbena, lemon eucalyptus and lemon essential oils this is a clean summer scent. It stands out all by itself and doesn’t need to be blended with other oils to enjoy the full experience. Although, I do make a lemon lavender scented soap that is popular too.
Calendula Benefits For Skin
Why use calendula in this soap?
Calendula is a very effective moisturizer because of its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. When I grow this herb here in Vermont and pick the bright orange flowers they are coated with a sticky residue. It’s this extremely high resin content that herbalist seek to make into infusions and add to their skin care recipes.
This orange daisy like flowers have powerful anti-inflammatory and antiviral healing properties. These antioxidants help protect the cells from damage from free radical and inflammation. This is the second most herb used in my skin care products. Lavender is the first. 😊
The calendula flower herb helps to repair dry, broken cracked skin normally found on our hands, elbows, knees and feet.
This herb can also be eaten and taken in tea form to help the body internally. To learn more about how to grow this herb easily go to my other website Herb Garden Lady – Calendula
