Lemongrass Essential Oil

EXTRACTION: Steam distillation  

COUNTRY: India

DESCRIPTION: Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) is a perennial grass native to the tropical climates of Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, India, Sri Lanka, Burma and Thailand.  It has a rich history of use in Asian cuisine, and is also occasionally used as a pesticide and preservative.  Lemongrass has been used for centuries in traditional medicine.  It has a light, fresh, lemony scent that is popular in aromatherapy.  In East India and Sri Lanka it is a main component to a common treatment called "fever tea" said to aid with fevers, menstruation, diarrhea and nausea. In Chinese medicine, lemongrass is used similarly to treat headaches, nausea and colds. Lemongrass's primary chemical components are geranial and nerol, which are antiseptic, and give this grass its healing capabilities.  Through the process of steam distillation, an essential oil is derived that can be used topically to deliver many therapeutic properties to the skin.
