Lemongrass herbOrganic Lemongrass
Cymbopogon species

Wonderful for adding a gentle lemony scent to incense, lemongrass is ruled by Mercury and thus is helpful for developing magical skills. Add to ritual aids for ceremonial magic or divination, or, since Mercury is also the master of disguise, consider adding it to incense or oils used for shapeshifting, glamours, and invisibility. This herb lends "innocence" to Trickster items and is an essential ingredient in Van Van oil. Unlike other citrus scents, lemongrass is relaxing and mildly sedating, so this magic herb makes a nice bedtime tea for divination and is a good addition to mugwort and lavender in dream pillows. For kitchen witchery, it is pleasant infused in wine vinegar too.

Lemongrass is said to have been a favorite herb of Paraclesus, 15th-century alchemist, physician and philosopher. He considered it a cure all and referred to it as "the elixer of life," which follows naturally from its analgesic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and calming effects. The indigenous Krahô Indians of Brazil use lemongrass for its anxiolytic properites (preventing or reducing anxiety). It is also called fever grass, silky heads, Malabar grass and belongs to the Poaceae family.
