Lemongrass is an aromatic, clump forming grass of the Poaceae family attaining a height of 1.5 meter or more and is native to southern India, Sri Lanka, Burma and Thailand. It is widely used as a flavoring ingredient in Indian and Thai cooking and has a very long history of use in traditional Indian medicine to help reduce fevers and against infectious illness. Lemongrass essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the freshly harvested and finely chopped grass, and is commonly used in cosmetic and as an effective insect repellent.

Lemongrass is diuretic and has galactagogue properties. Its antipyretic characteristics make it an especially toning and refreshing febrifuge. The topical astringency and antiseptic features of Lemongrass make it an effective cleanser for oily skin with acne, especially when combined with lavender as a buffering agent.

Lemongrass is antimicrobial and a phagocyte immunostimulant; it resists contagion when employed as an aerosol disinfectant or other means of vaporization. It is a good sanitary disinfectant as well. Similar to citronella, Lemongrass is a first-rate insect repellent and parasiticide.

The fragrance smells just like lemon and has pungent, fresh, hay-like top notes with earthy, green grassy undertones.

Emotionally, Lemongrass essential oil is found to be cooling, soothing and stimulating.
