Cymbopogon, better known by the common name lemongrass, is a genus of grasses that are widely distributed across several continents. Native to areas with a tropical climate, lemongrass plants are easily distinguishable by their wiry appearance.
In the warm and dry landscapes ranging from Southeast Asia to Sri Lanka, and even in the outback of Australia, native herbalists have long used lemongrass for its incredible medical benefits. It is said to possess antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties for both humans and animals—truly a miracle plant if we’ve ever heard of one. For many centuries the residents of rural villages in developing countries relied on lemongrass to heal wounds, prevent infection, and fight bacteria.
Today, Western aromatherapists emphasize the importance of integrating lemongrass into your daily wellness routine. When lemongrass essential oil is extracted, it can be used in cooking, alternative medicine, and of course, candles.
The bright and fresh citrus aroma is ideal for creating an inspiring and motivating environment in your home, while also calming mild anxiety. Kickstart the day with a boost of powerful motivation and tackle your most challenging creative projects.
