Cymbopogon citratus is a subtropical plant in the grass family that has been cultivated for its culinary applications and healthful properties. Dried lemongrass has a wonderfully subtle citrus aroma and flavor that can be added to soups, rice dishes, or braised foods. Our organic lemongrass powder is ideal for cooking and making homemade soaps, lotions, and other topical preparations.
With its lemony scent and hint of rose aroma, lemongrass is an essential ingredient in Thai and Indonesian cooking. Lemongrass grows wild in Indonesia, Indochina, and tropical Australia, and has been cultivated in Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka as a culinary herb and in India as a beneficial herb for thousands of years. It was considered by Paracelsus to be his favorite and most revered herb. Lemon grass is also referred to as fever grass and belongs to the Poaceae plant family.
Universally used within tea blends for its flavor and aroma. Rarely seen in encapsulations or extracts, but equally as effective.
1 teaspoon of lemongrass powder equals one stalk of fresh lemongrass. Dried whole or cut lemongrass should be soaked for two hours in warm water before used in cooking.
