Lemongrass

Botanical Name : Cymbopogon Citratus

Country of Origin : Indonesia

Olfactive Family : Hesperidia

Harvester : Cœur de Forêt

Harvested part : Leaves

Main application : Diffusion

Lemongrass essential Oil also called Indian Verbena is 100% pure and natural. It is obtained by distilling the leaves of the plant sourced in Indonesia by the association Coeur de Forêt.

A great classic of perfumery, its fragrance is fresh and citrusy as well as aromatic and spicy. A fabulous oil that is first used as a binder in an aromatic composition. But not only, since the bulb of the lemongrass is a basic flavouring agent in Indonesian dishes. And its many benefits make its essential oil a widely used product in natural medicine especially for its anti-infectious and anti-inflammatory properties.

Perfumery

OLFACTORY DESCRIPTION

Lemongrass essential oil is a classic in terms of olfactory, therapeutic and culinary properties. Nevertheless its power does not alter its great sophistication. It is lemony, but also highly aromatic and spicy, while retaining a freshness to any test. Gradually leaving its citrus notes behind, the fragrance moves into olfactory recesses close to geranium and rose, before joining the green and earthy trail of a persistent herb like basil. The food dimension is gradually increasing, approaching coriander and carrot seed, to finally fade into the dull, murky earth.

*The FEMA number is an international food safety number. It is essential to be able to use them in food, without it, you are not allowed to consume them. Le Sourceur rejects any responsibility in case of non respect of these rules. Essential oils are also very concentrated, a single drop is often enough to flavor your cold dishes, when we consider a maximum of 2 to 3 drops on a hot dish. Be careful with their use in cooking, too much of them can be dangerous or even fatal. If in doubt, contact a specialist.

Recipes

We recommend lemongrass essential oil for a little touch of flavor, but use it sparingly or you may have to taste your dish several times before tasting it.

Some recipe ideas :

• White meat (chicken, turkey) – 1 to 2 drops
• Salmon Ceviche with coconut milk – Spread well, 1 to 2 drops are enough
• On a grilled fish (sea bass or sea bream) Be careful with the power
