Fighting Breast Cancer with Lemongrass Love

Today marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is a disease that impacts so many of our lives because of those it afflicts. That’s is why it is a cause that resonates so deeply with us. Nine years ago, we began our partnership with Living Beyond Breast Cancer. LBBC is a organization that provides programs, services and a community to help women and men impacted by breast cancer. This goal of support, education and fellowship closely resembles our own and made it a natural fit.

Each year we show our commitment to the organization by creating a limited edition product, with all profits being donated to LBBC. This year, we launched Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray, an invigorating facial spray that soothes your soul and your skin.

Ingredient Education: Lemongrass Oil

We all know how refreshing the scent of lemons are, but have you ever experienced the reinvigorating scent of Lemongrass? The Lemongrass plant is a fibrous grass that is used in some Asian cuisines as a seasoning. It has a soft, citrusy scent, but that is also balanced with a hint of earthy undertones. Now that you know what lemongrass is, let’s talk about the health and skincare benefits of lemongrass oil.

The Benefits of Lemongrass Oil

Lemongrass Essential Oil is an aroma-therapeutic oil that is said to have a range of health benefits. On the aromatherapy side, it is a calming scent that some claim helps reduce stress and anxiety. According to healthline.com, it also has the potential to help relieve a range of health issue, including:

  • Digestive problems;
  • High blood pressure; and,
  • Inflammation.

How we use Lemongrass Oil

Here at jane iredale, we love the citrus scent of lemongrass and infuse it into many of our products. We use it because of its refreshing scent, and because it also helps limit the secretion of oils. When you see Cymbopogon Citratus listed in the ingredients as either an extract or an oil; that’s the scientific name for lemongrass. It can be found in Glow Time BB Cream, Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray, and HandDrink SPF 15 Hand Cream.
