Inspired by the history of use of aromatic plants in the Ethiopian culture, Damascene is currently engaged in the production of essential oils (with flavors such as rosemary, eucalyptus, lemon grass, orange, lavender and peppermint), bath salt and hydro-water. The products are directly delivered to hotels (Including Sheraton Addis hotel, Harmoney hotel, Intercontinental hotel, Elliliy Hotel, Haile resort and spa, Adona spa and other Spa and resorts ), beauty salons/spas as well as individual consumers through the company’s retail shop. Now, Damascene wants to expand its set of products with the manufacturing of beauty care products and spiced sesame oil made from locally grown sesame and herbs. Damascene’s customers often ask if Natural massage oil and beauty-care products are available for purchase, as they are keen to use Damascene’s high quality products exclusively. Products in demand include shampoos, creams, lotions and even mosquito repellent. Each product will be available in a variety of scents, using the essential oils.

Lemon Grass Oil

Cymbopogon, better known as lemongrass, is a genus of Asian, African, Australian, and tropical island plants in the grass family. Some species (particularly Cymbopogon citratus) are commonly cultivated as culinary and medicinal herbs because of their scent, resembling that of lemons (Citrus limon). Common names include lemon grass, lemongrass, barbed wire grass, silky heads, citronella grass, cha de Dartigalongue, fever grass, tanglad, hierba Luisa, or gavati chahapati, amongst many others.
Lemongrass is widely used as a culinary herb in Asian cuisines and also as medicinal herb in India. It has a subtle citrus flavor and can be dried and powdered, or used fresh. It is commonly used in teas, soups, and curries. It is also suitable for use with poultry, fish, beef, and seafood. It is often used as a tea in African countries such as Togo, south eastern Ghana Volta Region and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Latin American countries such as Mexico. Lemongrass oil is used as a pesticide and a preservative. Research shows that lemongrass oil has antifungal properties. Despite its ability to repel some insects, such as mosquitoes, its oil is commonly used as a "lure" to attract honey bees. "Lemongrass works conveniently as well as the pheromone created by the honeybee's Nasonov gland, also known as attractant pheromones. Because of this, lemongrass oil can be used as a lure when trapping swarms or attempting to draw the attention of hived bees."
