Lemongrass is one of the natural aromatic herbs of India. It has a very long history in the use of traditional Indian medicine, particularly against fevers and infectious diseases.
Of tropical origin, lemongrass, also known as caña santa -in Cuba-, lemongrass -in Mexico-, molojillo criollo -in Venezuela-, lemongrass and fevergrass grass, in other Spanish-speaking countries, grows spontaneously in many areas of Asia, Africa and America although, in general, it is cultivated for its medicinal and cosmetic use. The leaves of this plant, which measure between 60 and 120 centimeters in height, are elongated like ribbons, give off a pleasant aroma, rarely bloom and take on a reddish color when dry.
The active component of lemongrass is approximately 80 percent citral, an important material for perfumery, confectionery and liquor. The rest is made up of geraniol, farnesol, nerol, citronellol and circene. With a very mild perfume and a hint of lemon, lemongrass oil is popularly known for being a powerful antiseptic and insect repellent.
