The lemongrass or lemongrass has the scientific name cymbopogon citratus. In Asia, lemongrass is used to make soup, tea, curry to accompany fish, chicken, beef and seafood. In Madagascar, lemongrass or veromanitra is often used as tea and in inhalation . It grows in the highlands of Madagascar.
Citronella essential oil is highly concentrated in citrals (neral + geranial) and geraniol. These different molecules give it the following main properties:

  • Vasodilator +++: this essential oil helps dilate blood vessels. This results in better blood circulation in the body and, ultimately, a decrease in blood pressure.

  • Sedative +++ (citral): Lemongrass essential oil contains citral, a relaxing molecule that acts on the nervous system. It decreases anxiety states and promotes sleep.

  • Digestive Tonic ++: the molecules contained in the essential oil of Lemongrass participate in a facilitation of digestion by stimulating the various functions of the digestive system.

  • Anti-Inflammatory ++ (citral): citral makes it possible to modulate the body's response to an attack suffered (inflammation) and calms the sensations of heat, and the resulting redness.

  • Antiseptic ++ (geraniol, citral): this essential oil prevents the development and growth of viruses, bacteria and fungi in the body. Citral and geraniol exhibit bactericidal action against Salmonella enteritidis and enterica, Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli. They also fight against the development of the fungi Penicillium digitatum, Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Finally, citral and geraniol constitute a protective barrier against viruses, thus slowing their progression in the body in order to stop it as quickly as possible. Citral effectively targets the cold and vaginal herpes virus.
