Don’t think so. I have the same allergy and I’ve been using a lemongrass diffuser oil in my home without any ill-effects.

I don’t think you need to worry. My niece has a citrus allergy. And she’s been eating Thai food for years now without any trouble!

It may smell citrusy, but lemongrass does not belong to the citrus family. It actually belongs to the grass family. You should be fine.
