Long been appreciated and used by those in South East Asia, it grew native to Malyasia, but has been a staple of households in India, Thailand, China and many other countries for centuries. There are also many references to what may have been Lemongrass in ancient literature, especially in Hebrew documents. Scholars believe that the word kaneh was a Hebrew term generic for all sweet smelling grasses, including Lemongrass. Its highly fragrant stems were said to still be offering its pungent lemony therapy centuries after being placed in several Pharaoh’s tombs. When archeologist opened several tombs, faint lemony perfume was detected in the air and lemongrass stalks found near the entombed bodies.
The close cousin of the popular citronella, Lemongrass is an excellent insect repellent. Lemongrass not only repels but kills many insect species as well. The same lemony scent that citronella produces can also be enjoyed when using Lemongrass: definitely a plus over the traditional “stinky” bug sprays that are commercially available.

After mixing three drops of the lemongrass into one teaspoon of Beeyoutiful's Almond Oil, she rubbed it on their temples, navels and bottom of the feet. She was delighted to find that the fevers not only subsided, but all were resting quietly within thirty minutes.
