Originally from Central America and Southeast Asia, the lemongrass belongs to the Poaceae family and is highly appreciated in the Caribbean, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Australia. This delicious rustic herb is adept in mild environments with the presence of humidity and good sun exposure. In several countries, it is used as a vegetable and aromatic herb in various culinary dishes combined with grated coconut, curry, fish, ginger, and meat. Fast-growing lemongrass is a plant that contributes to physical and mental well-being. Lemongrass tea is recommended for hot and cold days.
Lemongrass contains about 70% citral essential oil rich in vitamin A, equal to that found in lemon and orange peel. It can help fight excessive sweating and even mitigate the effects of the athlete's foot. You can also use it as an insect repellent. If you are suffering from muscle pain or arthritis, you can soak some compresses in lemongrass tea and apply them to the affected areas. In Suriname (a South American country), this wonderful herb is used to fight cough, asthma, headaches, and fever. While in the West, it is used as a digestive tonic and natural calming of the nervous system.
