The Story of Lemongrass Oil
Lemongrass has been used in cooking and herbal medicine for at least five thousand years. It was used by locals in India for a variety of medical issues.
The plant has deep historical roots in Asian and African cultures as well. Lemongrass has been cultivated in Southeast Asia for the past two thousand years. History shows that in East India and Sri Lanka, lemongrass was combined with other herbs to make a drink locally known as fever tea. The locals would use this beverage to treat fevers, irregular menstruation, diarrhea and stomachaches. India also used the oil to treat fungal infections of the skin.
