Repelling Mosquitoes Naturally
If you like using the Lemongrass herb (Cymbopogon citratus) in your soups and seafood dishes, you may have found that it’s not always readily available in your local grocery store. You may have wondered how to grow lemongrass on your own. You can grow your own lemongrass plants, and in fact, growing lemongrass and propagating lemongrass is not all the difficult and you don’t have to have a great green thumb. Lemongrass is named such but has no connection with lemons except that it has a strong lemon-like aroma and taste. It is a tropical herb that grows as a long, thin-bladed, green grass in a bush with scallion-like base, and used widely in Asian cooking.
As with all grasses, lemongrass is very fibrous and cannot be eaten as it is. You can juice it using a masticating juicer, or make tea of it.
The health benefits of lemongrass is tremendous due to its superior anti-microbial, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer properties.
It has tremendous health benefits that are especially helpful when consumed during a juice fast/feast or when on a detox program as it helps rebalance the intestinal flora.
This grass-like plant smells wonderful and contains natural citronella oil. You can also cut off the blades and roll them around your fingers; this will extract the oil from the plant which you can place on your skin as an effective repellent for mosquitos.
Cultivation and Growing Information
Growing lemongrass is as simple as taking your started plant out of the water and putting the rooted stalks into a pot containing all-purpose soil, with the crown just below the surface. You want to put this pot of lemongrass plants in a warm, sunny spot on a window ledge or out on your patio. Water it regularly.
If you live in a warm climate, you can plant your lemongrass plants out in the backyard in a bog or pond. Of course, growing the plant indoors is nice for having easy access to the fresh plant whenever you need it.
