Lemongrass or East Indian lemongrass is also called Cochin grass or Malabar grass. It is thought to have its origins in South East Asia and native to Sri Lanka and South India among others. Historically is has been used in medicine, cosmetics, and culinary uses. In some cultures it has been called “fever grass” and is used for teas. It is a sister perennial
grass with Citronella and has the similar lemony smell. Both citronella and lemongrass have comparable repellent properties but lemongrass needs to be further diluted for topical use.
