The Origin of Lemongrass
Lemongrass is an essential oil grown and harvested in small family farms in Southern India.
Farmers hike 5 miles up a steep mountain to harvest the plants that may take around 7 days to harvest a 100 acre area. The harvesting is carried out by hand before hiking back down the mountain carrying the plants on in sacks on their heads.
Further Reading The Science
Lemongrass, Cymbopogon flexuosus, produces many secondary metabolites, including essential oils. Of the genes relating to secondary metabolites, 18 percent coded for terpenoid backbone biosynthesis, 1 percent for monoterpenoid biosynthesis, 1 percent for sesquiterpenoid and triterpenoid biosynthesis, and 5 percent for limonene and pinene degradation. That represents a significant investment by the Lemongrass plant in producing a diverse essential oil. The diversity of these genes correlates to the diversity of components in Lemongrass essential oil.
