Lemongrass is an herb which belongs to gramineae family. Scientifically it is called as Cymbopogon citratus. The prefix lemon owes to its typical lemon like odour, due to presence of citral a cyclic monoterpene. Lemongrass has phytoconstituents such as tannins, flavanoids, alkaloids, and various essential oils in this herb. Secondary active metabolites of a number of components have also been implicated in the varied pharmalogical effects of this plant. lemongrass possesses various…
