Densely clumped and stiff-stemmed, Lemongrass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) grows wild in the tropics of Eastern India. The grass is harvested and dried as soon as possible to preserve maximum oil retention before the leaves are steam-distilled to produce an oil that ranges in colour from yellow to amber.
In Essence’s Lemongrass producer has a strong commitment to sustainability, the environment and its people. There is a strong emphasis on lasting partnerships with farmers, growers and vendors; education and training; ensuring approval standards are met, and sustainable farming practices are undertaken.
Extensive environmental impacts have created a reduced carbon footprint and ecological balance, achieved through helping farmers maintain and improve the quality of their soil, air and water. There is a comprehensive recycling program for plastic, paper and water, and the generation of energy from agricultural waste. Trees are also planted at production sites, factory locations and in the wider community.
Socially our Lemongrass producer has improved the quality of life for local communities with the supply and installation of new public bathrooms in rural areas and the purchase of school supplies and uniforms to local families.
