Essential Oils are fascinating little gifts from nature that benefit the skin.

I believe almost everything we need to aid mankind in healing and well-being can be found in the earth and gifts from nature. One of those gifts is Lemon Myrtle backousia citradoria, and Lemongrass cymbopogen citratus, both used to repel bugs and also enjoyed as a beneficial healing plant. Both Lemongrass and Lemon Myrtle have Citral along with many other interesting chemical compounds, which give it the lovely lemony scent so often cherished by citrus lovers the world over.


Bugs do not appreciate I the scent of citral but we humans sure do! It works hard at repelling bugs from our skin! It's best used with other essential oils to tame the scent a bit. Diluting with a carrier oil is also important. Oils with citral are best used in preparations made by skilled formulators and skincare makers who know what levels are safe to use on the skin.

Lemongrass is used as a natural remedy to heal wounds and help prevent infection. Research from 2010 found that lemongrass essential oil was effective against a variety of drug-resistant bacteria, including those that cause skin infections


Lemongrass Clay Detox Bar


I included both essential oil of Lemon Myrtle and Lemongrass in our Lemongrass Clay Bar Soap because the scent is so inspiring and uplifting while including other balancing essential oils for that perfect skin-enhancing achievement. You can use the Lemongrass Soap we make before garden work, or going outdoors where biting flies and mosquitoes are known to buzz around. This in addition with our Bug Off Bug Repellent Spray, will keep you and the kids safe and free from diseases that bugs carry these days. We have an outdoor set that you can use as well. The Lemongrass Clay Bar Soap we make bubbles up naturally and provides a wonderful balance to the face, body, and hair! All of our bars are naturally formulated for gentile skincare needs. Suitably for both men and women and children. Always skin test on a small patch of skin before applying liberally to make sure you are not allergic to an oil.

Bug Off!

Many have commented on our particular soap blend and the mood-elevating effect that moth Lemon Myrtle and Lemongrass have on the senses. We combine French Green Clay which helps shrink large pores while Kaolin Clay gently pulls impurities from the skin while leaving your skin feeling soft and clean without over drying. The two clays work synergistically together for the perfect blend.

If you have sensitive skin or even of you just want a soap that lathers beautifully and creamy yet doesn't leave your skin itchy and dry then you will love all of the soaps we make here at ME AND A TREE SKINCARE. All of our soaps bubble beautifully without adding SLS or any sudsing agents. We simply rely on excellent natural formulations.


Our Lemongrass Clay Soap Bar by Me and a Tree can be purchased a few times a year and is a seasonal product. When you see it available, you can grab a few bars at a time online as we have some who buy half the batch upfront and keep it for the year for gifts and personal enjoyment.
