I need a source for lemongrass extract
« on: June 09, 2009, 12:16:12 PM »
I want to be prepared for the time I will need it and I do not want to get stuck with an second-rate brand of lemongrass extract.

Does anyone have a good source for lemongrass extract/oil?

i have used that ebay store also.  their specials are better than the health food stores, even with the shipping.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have a further question.

I have been reading up on essential oils, it sound like this is potent stuff, is it best to dilute the oil before using it and if so, with what?

I have also read that if the scent is to strong the bees may avoid the box.

The stuff I sell and use, I just put my finger over the bottle, invert the bottle once, then rub the wood with the wet finger. Yes, it is concentrated.
