Lemongrass Essential Oil
Benefits of Lemongrass:
If lemongrass is used on the skin, it can be used as a natural deodorant or an astringent. It helps ward off unwanted insects, cure fungal infections, and it often used in products such as shampoo or cleanser because the oil sterilizes pores due to its antiseptic properties. Also, the essence is added to lotions and massage oils to relax and soothe aching muscles and help the user sleep.
Lemongrass can be added to food or drinks such as tea in order to give it flavor. When ingested, the lemongrass acts as a diuretic and cleans out the kidneys, can aid with excess flatulence, is proven to reduce the effects of menstrual cramps, nausea, and irritability, can help prevent the formation of cancerous tumors, cures stomach aches, help the user fight a cold or flu, and can grant relief from headaches.
Lemon grass also has a big effect on the brain as it can help those struggling with depression, vertigo, convulsions, anxiety, and shaking limbs.

Recycling – Naked Packaging at Calla Lily Cosmetics
Our naked packaging choice!
90% of all products are in some cardboard or paperboard packaging, sometimes in multiple layers. Inner, Outer, and actual product packaging adds three times the cardboard and paperboard to products.
80% of retailers do recycle cardboard and paperboard, in spite of this, cardboard still makes up 41% of our municipal waste streams.
At Calla Lily we made the decision to use recyclable materials whenever possible for our packaging. We feel we can achieve our own unique style without sacrificing our environment. This also led us to our naked packaging philosophy. We may choose to, from time to time, use some secondary packaging but by and large we strive to be 100% naked packaging.
We want our products to stand on their own feet and help mother earth along the way.
