Native to maritime Southeast Asia, lemongrass is a member of the important grass family (Poaceae or Gramineae). Lemongrass is most often associated with Southeast Asian cooking but is also grown in Sri Lanka, Southern India, parts of Africa, South America, and the Caribbean. In many of these countries, lemongrass is often used to make medicinal teas, as well as used in cooking or for oil production.
Lemongrass is a perennial grass and can reach a height of around 1.5m. The grass, harvested by hand or machine, is conventionally steam distilled to extract the oil. The oil is widely used in the food industry, traditional medicine, perfumery, and the cosmetics industry.
Lemongrass has been used for hundreds of years in ancient medicine and aromatherapy. Studies have found Lemongrass oil to have several medicinal properties, including being antimicrobial, antioxidant, and aiding mood improvement.
