What Is Lemongrass Essential Oil?Lemon grass is cultivated mostly for its essential oil in tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, South America, and Africa . Its oil has a light yellow color with a lemony scent, hence it is widely used in aromatherapy. There is a large international demand for the essential oil of Cymbopogon species. Steam distillation produces essential oils, hydrosols, and aromatic waters, which are often used to support inflammation and healthy microbial infection management. Lemongrass essential oil has considerable commercial importance because it is used in the manufacture of fragrances, flavors, perfumery and cosmetics [2, 3]. In Asia and Africa, Lemongrass essential oil is used as an antiseptic, antitussive, and anti-rheumatic while supporting back pains and sprains. Infusions of its leaves are used for their calming and restful properties. In some African countries, it is used to support blood sugar health . *
Phytochemical ContentThe major components were geranial (42.2%), neral (31.5%), and β-myrcene (7.5%). Geranyl acetate (4.3%) and isopulegol (1.4%) were minor but significant components. The quality of lemongrass is generally determined by its citral content. Citral (3,7-dimethyl-2,6-octadienal) consists of the cis-isomer geranial and the trans-isomer neral. These two oxygenated monoterpenes are present in our Lemongrass essential oil in proportion of around 73.3%. Also, Lemongrass essential oil had a high content of oxygenated monoterpenes and low amounts of monoterpene hydrocarbons (9.54%), sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (0.79%), and oxygenated sesquiterpenes (0.33%).
