Lemongrass is a herb cherished for its aroma and citrus-cum-ginger taste. It is also known as citronella and its botanical name is cymbopogon ciatrus. It is widely used in Asian cuisines, especially Thai, Malaysian and Vietnamese. Besides culinary purposes, lemongrass possesses a lot of medical and health benefits. Some of them are as follows:

Lemongrass contains anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. It is useful in treating infections of the stomach, colon, urinary tract and wounds. It helps to cure diseases like typhoid, skin infections, food poisoning and body odour. Because it contains analgesic properties, lemongrass oil helps in relieving pain from headaches, joint pains and muscle pains. Lemongrass possesses anti-pyretic properties that is beneficial in bringing down fever. Therefore, lemongrass is administered to people having fever.
