Also known as Cymbopogon flexuosus, Lemongrass is a tall, perennial plant that has long, aromatic leaves cut and steam-distilled to produce it’s essential oil.
Chemistry of Lemongrass Oil
Main Chemical Components: Geranial, neral
Harvesting lemongrass is a labor-intensive process, but for families in Southern India, it has been a way of life for generations. doTERRA chose Southern India as a sourcing location because of the high levels of rain fall in the area. A greater amount of rain fall creates a higher citral content in the lemongrass, which makes it superior for essential oil use.
During harvest time, farmers hike five miles up a steep mountain and work for roughly seven days to harvest a 100-acre plantation. Lemongrass is harvested by hand, using a sickle—which is part of what makes the harvesting process so physically demanding. Once the lemongrass is harvested and gathered, the farmers walk the five miles back down the mountain, each carrying a lemongrass bundle on top of their head.
