Lemongrass (Cymbopogon) is a tall perennial plant from the poaceae grass family, which thrives in tropical and subtropical regions, such as in India, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China, and Guatemala. This plant grows in dense clumps and has bright-green, sharp-edged leaves, similar to grass. Lemongrass is a popular flavoring in Asian cooking-added to curries and soups, or paired with beef, fish, poultry, and seafood. Fresh lemongrass is also used to make lemongrass tea. There are over 50 varieties of lemongrass, but not all are edible or ideal for medicinal purposes.3 The two varieties of lemongrass most popularly used today are Cymbopogon citratus and Cymbopogon flexuosus. While they can be used interchangeably, especially for making lemongrass oil, citratus is more popularly known in culinary applications, while C. flexuosus is more dominant in industrial applications, such as perfumery.4 Lemongrass oil is extracted from the leaves of the plant. It has a thin consistency, and a pale or bright yellow color. It has a strong, fresh, lemony, and earthy scent.
