Lemongrass is native to Sri Lanka and South India, and is now widely cultivated in the tropical areas of America and Asia. The plant is used as a fragrance and flavouring agent and it is employed in folk medicine for many purposes (antispasmodic, hypotensive, analgesic, antiseptic...) Lemongrass is also used as an antibacterial and antioxidant, but the mode of action for the different bioactivities has not been studied in detail. Cymbopogon citratus contains various phytoconstituents such as flavonoids and phenolic compounds, terpenoids and essential oils. In cosmetics, lemongrass extracts are used due to their anti-inflammatory and veinotonic effects in skin care especially for oily skin and against diffuse reddening.
