Botanical Name: Cymbopogon Citrullus
Lemongrass contains about 4% of volatile oil. Its volatile oil is 65% citrol, 12% myrcene, and 23% sundry oils. Lemongrass oil has been found to be anti-microbial, particular against gram positive bacteria and fungi. It has also been found to be pain killing, central nervous system depressing, fever reducing, and anti-oxidant. It seems that Lemongrass oil applied to the joints will relieve the pain felt in arthritic joint conditions.
