Cymbopogon flexuosus, also known as East Indian Lemongrass, is a perennial grass native to Cambodia, Vietnam, India, Sri Lanka, Burma, and Thailand. Its essential oil is produced by steam distillation of the freshly cut leaves or extracted using alcohol. This herb has a subtle citrus flavor, making it ideal for teas, soups, curries, and as a flavoring in perfumery and the food industry. It is also a popular herb for use with poultry, fish, beef, and seafood. Lemongrass oil has antifungal properties and is commonly used as a pesticide and preservative. It is even known to attract honey bees, making it an excellent lure when trapping swarms or attempting to draw the attention of hived bees. Its many uses in cooking, medicine, and industry make East Indian Lemongrass a valuable addition to any herb garden. Cultivate this herb today and enjoy its many benefits!
