Looking for DIY recipes and practical aromatherapy advice?

These sheets contain detailed information on the featured Essential Oil as well as practical recipes. This week, we offer you two new practical sheets to download: cinnamon and Java lemongrass. To discover as soon as possible for a “hot” summer!

Nevertheless, it has its place in certain formulas for cleaning the digestive tract and for cooking (long live flavored desserts!).

Java lemongrass (cymbopogon winterianus) is one of the summer essentials for its two-in-one effect: mosquito repellent and soothing in case of bites. Its anti-inflammatory action is also documented in joint care protocols.
