Description: Gingergrass is a less-known oil, but is a major addition to your essential oil collection. It comes from the same family as Palmarosa and Lemongrass, so if you like either of those, you will also enjoy Gingergrass.
Gingergrass is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, so it's used in many applications, such as in skincare to help treat blackheads, pimples, and other skin issues. It is also antiseptic, which is used by many to treat wounds.
Issues with insects? Gingergrass has been shown to repel many insects, including certain mosquitos.
