Among housewives, lemongrass or called Lemongrass is very familiar with being one of the essential ingredients for cooking. The use of lemongrass or Citronella scent is usually for food and as a flavor enhancer. The question, whether that's the benefit of this Serai? Serai or in Latin called Andropogon nardus this turned out to save a lot of benefits for human health. In some studies, leaves of lemongrass turned out to contain an anti-microbial and anti-bacterial which is especially useful for treating infections of the stomach, intestine, urinary bladder, and heal wounds. Not only that, lemongrass is also widely used for the relief of spasms, anti-rheumatic, and is a diuretic. In addition, the content of the lemongrass analgesics can also serve to help relieve the pain of headaches, muscle aches and joint pain. Later, Serai also widely believed to cure various diseases such as skin infections, typhoid, food poisoning, and also relieve body odor.

Really? I haven't heard about those medicinal benefits of the grass. Thanks for sharing. What I know is that lemon grass is added to rice, lechon and glutinous rice to give them more appetizing smell. The lemon grass also eliminates the "porky" smell of the lechon and bad smell of rice. I also read somewhere that the lemon grass plant is an effective insect repellent specially against cockroaches. Just put this plant in a place and almost all insects in the perimeter will move away.
