Xiang Mao—Young Living’s Newest Single Essential Oil
Xiang Mao means “aromatic grass for rapid enlightenment” and is commonly known as red lemongrass. It is the newest Young Living’s single essential oil. Founder and CEO D. Gary Young loves to travel the world to search for health giving essential oils to add to the line of Young Living’s essential oils. This new oil is a rapid-growing clump grass that can be found in Taiwan’s southeastern mountain slopes and is grown by the aboriginal Paiwan tribe.
Xiang Mao essential oil can offer a lot of benefits and its versatility makes it ideal for everyday use. It was traditionally used to freshen the air at home, enlighten the mind, and to keep skin moisturized. Xiang Mao has also the calming effects used in folk medicine to promote relaxation.
Here are some benefits of using Xiang Mao essential oil:
- It is very useful as an all-natural cleaner.
- This oil can be used to keep your skin moisturized and fresh. It may also support skin from blemishes.
- You can also use this essential oil to add some lemon taste to your beverages.
Ways to Use Xiang Mao:
- Xiang Mao can be used to support meditation by simply diffusing or applying a drop to your temples. Doing this can also promote calm and relaxing feelings. It can also boost courage for everyday living.
- This oil can also be used for pest control. You can use it alone or with some other essential oils like Dorado Azul, Citronella and Myrtle. Just diffuse these oils to create a powerful, pesticide-free, natural and safe insect deterrent.
- You can also use Xiang Mao with Patchouli, Cedarwood, Melaleuca alternifolia and Eucalyptus blue for an insect repellant.
- It is safe to apply the oils mentioned above directly to your skin as a natural bug spray. (Use 10–20 drops of each oil in a base of distilled water, or drop the oils into standing water around your yard and home to help prevent mosquitoes.)
- To encourage relaxation while taking a bath, you can use Xiang Mao along with V-6 Vegetable Oil Complex. Apply these oils to your feet following a warm bath.
- Add Xiang Mao to Thieves Household Cleaner to create a cleansing agent that will help you purify surfaces. Or use it as countertop cleaner by adding 20-30 drops in a small spray bottle of distilled water. You can also use this oil to polish your furniture. Just combine ½ cup olive oil and 20-30 drops Xiang Mao to protect and care for wood furniture.
- For a clean, refreshing aroma during bath time, use Xiang Mao in Young Living’s Bath & Shower Gel Base.
