Lemongrass is a fast growing, tall, aromatic perennial grass that grows up to 1.5 meters in height. It is native to Asia, but is now cultivated mostly in the West Indies, Africa, and Tropical Asia. Lemongrass essential oil's uplifting scent neutralizes odour, refreshes the skin, and even helps keep bugs away. It supports healthy digestion, soothes aching muscles, tones skin and is cleansing.
