From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cymbopogon, commonly known as lemongrass (UK: /ˈlɛmənˌɡrɑːs/US: /ˈlɛmənˌɡræs/) is a genus of about 45 species of grasses, (of which the type species is Cymbopogon citratus, a natural and soft teaanxiolytic native to warm temperate and tropical regions of the Old World and Oceania. It is a tall perennial grass.

It is known as serai in Malaysia and Bruneiserai or sereh in Indonesia, and tanglad in the Philippines. While both can be used interchangeably, C. citratus is more suitable for cooking. In India, C. citratus is used both as a medical herb and in perfumes. C. citratus is consumed as a tea for anxiety in Brazilian folk medicine, but a study in humans found no effect.[7] The tea caused a recurrence of contact dermatitis in one case.
