Details

Lemongrass is a fast-growing, tall, aromatic, perennial grass which grows up to 1.5m high. Lemongrass is native to southern India, Sri Lanka, the West Indies and Guatemala but is also cultivated in Brazil and parts of Central Africa. Lemongrass essential oil is extracted by steam distillation of the fresh or partially dried, finely chopped grass.

Lemongrass is a wonderfully rich and pungent oil that energises the mind and body. It has been used in many Eastern cultures for thousands of years as an accompaniment to meditation and prayer. Lemongrass essential oil is used extensively in India and Pakistan as a medicine for infectious illness and fevers and it also acts as an insecticide.
