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.

If you want to be your own quality assurance dept, plant some.

that one looks pricey. I've seen them made of pyrex as well so with the terms figured out you can search more of them.

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.
