What Is It?
The wild harvested Central Australia Native Lemongrass (Cymbopogan Ambiguus) draws an aroma of citrus spirit from the arid lands while possessing gentle anti-inflammatory properties.
Australian native lemongrass, scientifically known as Cymbopogon ambiguus, is a perennial grass indigenous to various regions of Australia, particularly in arid and semi-arid areas. Adapted to the challenging Australian climate, this variety features long, slender green stems and emits a robust lemon fragrance akin to other lemongrass types. With culinary applications, Australian native lemongrass is employed to infuse dishes with its citrusy essence, commonly found in marinades, sauces, soups, and teas. Beyond its culinary uses, lemongrass, in general, is recognized for potential health benefits, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Indigenous Australian communities have historically incorporated native plants, such as lemongrass, for medicinal and culinary purposes, possibly bearing cultural significance in Aboriginal traditions. Thriving in well-drained soils and sunny conditions, Australian native lemongrass is a hardy plant that can endure drought periods. While not specifically endangered, conservation efforts may exist to protect native plant species, underscoring the importance of responsible use and cultivation.
