Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratum)
anxiolytic, hypnotic, anticonvulsant. - Brazilian folk medicine.
Leavez - Stimulant, sudorific, antiperodic, and anticatarrhal.
Essential oil - carminative, depressant, analgesic, antipyretic, antibacterial, and antifungal. - Traditional medicine of India.
Lemongrass has been shown to demonstrate cytoprotective, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties have been demonstrated in vitro under laboratory conditions during studies. It's often added to infusions to boost their medicinal value and to make them taste better, thus increasing desirability of consumption. You could try it with Echinacea, and Goldenseal for some impressive results.
It's not just used for treating illness in herbal medicine. Lemongrass also makes a great natural remedy for garden pest. This is because of chemicals inside of the plant. They act as a natural insect repellent. Citronella is a targeted chemical of the industrial revolution because it's used in over the counter insect repelling products. What people don't know is that it's a chemical made by nature, and sold by man. Nature deserves the credit that it has so righteously earned. This herb is the true creator of citronella. Its essential oil is chalked full of this valuable phytochemical.
Growing Lemongrass Plants
Lemongrass isn't not very tolerant to frost or extremely cold temperatures. For this reason, I suggest that you bring it indoors during cold nights or during a freeze. It can easily spring back to life and flourish when introduced back to the warm sunny weather. Like any other botanical, plant it in organic compost. It's best to source your compost from nature somewhere. See my YouTube video on finding organic compost outdoors.
For someone studying medicine, these medical terms are of great importance. They describe the effects caused by pharmacological compounds found within plants such as Cymbopogon citratum. These botanicals actually use the biospheres water and oxygen, and combine them with captured energy from the sun, to create highly sophisticated organic compounds. These organic compounds are what phytochemist have a major interest in. It's their job to research these fascinating creations. Are there any human chemist out there who can compete with what these medicinal plants have to offer? No, there are not.
When you take the time to do the research to where synthetic drugs come from, you'll notice that while nearly identical, we have actually constructed altered parallel dimensions of imperfection. The compounds made by nature, are obviously a safer alternative, at least most of the time, and when used correctly. The amount of phytochemicals consumed in a tincture of tea is also far less than that of synthetics, thus the letha dose is virtually impossible. I see this as a postulate.
This is why "alternative healers" prefer natural methods. The earths naturally occurring element of water, is pretty much capable of absorbing any compound produced by plants that you can imagine. What water will not capture, alcohol will. Nature offers and endless number of these pharmacological compounds. I'm interested in the knowledge of these remedies and their researched effects, and have the intention of utilizing them in the practice of healing. Don't try this at home kids.
