About the Plant:

Lemongrass is an aromatic tropical grass that cultivated primarily for culinary uses and belongs to the grass family of Poaceae. Lemongrass is also known by Cymbopogon; it is a genus of about 55 species of grasses. Lemongrass Oil comes from the leaves or grasses of the Lemongrass plant, most often the Cymbopogon flexuosus or Cymbopogon citratus

This perennial herb is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, but can also be grown as an annual in cooler climates. Lemongrass grows in dense clumps that can grow up to 6 feet in height, 4 feet in width, and have leaves up to 3 feet long. They require warm, humid conditions in full sun to thrive. It is not as attractive as many other ornamental grasses but clumps can develop into imposing specimens. Overall, Lemongrass Essential Oil has a light and fresh lemony smell with earthy undertones.

Were It grows:

Lemongrass is native to warm and tropical regions, such as India, Southeast Asia and Oceania. The East-Indian Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) is native to India, Sri Lanka, Burma and Thailand. While West-Indian Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) is of a Malaysian origin and is more typically used for cooking, but it is also cultivated in India for essential oil production. Extensive breeding programs have developed many varieties of Lemongrass, but few are available in North America. This plant requires a great deal of water, frost will kill or severely damage the plants, which is why Lemongrass doesn’t grow as well in some climates.

Traditional Uses and Lore:

Lemongrass, a valuable plant utilized for practical, medicinal, and culinary purposes, has its origins rooted in various Southeast Asian countries. Lemongrass, a plant with cultural significance in many Southeast Asian countries, has multiple species. The origin of Cymbopogon citratus can be traced back to Malaysia. Evidence of lemongrass cultivation dates back to 17th century Philippine texts. In the early 20th century, Sri Lankan researcher J.F. Jovit began studying the plant and later introduced it to Haiti and the tropical regions of the United States. By 1947, commercial cultivation had begun in Florida and Haiti.

Large-scale Lemongrass cultivation began in India over a century ago, and today the country is the number one exporter of its products. It is used as a medicinal herb in India and it is common in Asian cuisine. In African and South American countries, it is popularly used for making tea. Due to its practical, medicinal, and culinary value, the commercial industry for Lemongrass is significant, and its oil extracts are sold worldwide.

Lemongrass is a widely coveted component of many perfumes, cosmetics, and beverages due to its strong citrus-like aroma and taste. It is also commonly used for soaps, detergents, and insect repellents. Lemongrass is considered a staple ingredient in cuisine of many Southeast Asian countries, namely Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and some parts of China and India. Oil, stems and leaves are used to add a zesty flavor to dishes like curries, soups, sauces, and teas.

The plant is also believed to have medicinal properties, earning it the alternate name of “fever grass”. Some medicinal uses include treatment of stomachaches, digestive problems, fevers, and inflammation.* Lemongrass brewed into tea is said to be antibacterial, antifungal, and an antioxidant.* The entire plant can be utilized, with stems and leaves being harvested at the base for culinary purposes. Stems are edible on their own or as a component of various dishes, while leaves are used fresh or dried as a seasoning. Essential oil can be easily extracted by squeezing the leaves. Stems stripped of leaves and roots can be rooted in a glass of water and used to grow a new plant.
