Cymbopogon, commonly called Lemongrass, is a genus of more than 50 tropical plant species in the Grass family (also called Poaceae family). Some sub-species from the Lemongrass genus, especially Cymbopogon flexuosus and Cymbopogon citratus, have long been used in Southeast Asia for folk medicine and for culinary purposes. Indigenous to tropical regions such as Southeast Asia, Africa, and Australia, Lemongrass is characterized by a distinctive fresh fragrance that is citrusy, lemony, and earthy. Cymbopogon derives its name from the Greek words ‘kymbe’ (boat) and ‘pogon’ (beard), suggesting the hairy spikelets on the plant's boat-shaped leaves called spathes. It is thought that the popularity of Lemongrass Essential Oil began after the display of Citronella Essential Oil, a close relative of the Lemongrass plant, at the 1951 World Fair. However, some reports suggest that the Philippines might have exported the oil as early as the 17th century but it was kept secret. In 1905 a researcher from Sri Lanka, J.F. Jovit, brought back lemongrass plant from South India to his country to conduct research. The more he learned about the plant and the properties of its extracted oil, Lemongrass Essential Oil, word of the numerous benefits of the plant spread worldwide. The first commercial production and distribution of Lemongrass Essential Oil was in 1947 in Florida and Haiti, with India currently leading the production and accounting for ~80% Lemongrass Essential Oil production.
