Steam distillation is a clean technique to produce essential oil and hydrosol. It uses steam to take volatile oils and even water soluble nutrients out from the herb. Hence steam kills all the bacteria & leave behind all the debris & contamination naturally.
Making of lemongrass oil and hydrosol is a labor intensive & time -consuming process. It takes about 3 hours to produce about 20 liters of hydrosol & essential oil about 0.50 to 1 percent of the raw material ( vary with season).
lemongrass hydrosol produced does not need a preservative to give it a shelf life. It can stay healthy and good to us efor more than 2 years when stored in a sterile glass bottle and used with clean hands without contaminating it..

Cymbopogon citratus commonly known as lemon grass is claimed to possess diverse medicinal value among different cultures. The present study determined the phytochemicals and evaluated the antioxidant potential of Cymbopogon citratus leaves. The phytochemical analysis of the hydrosol was carried out using standard methods. The phytochemical analysis revealed the presence of flavonoids, tannin, saponion, terpenoids and other phenolics compounds.
Medicinal plants have great importance to the individual's health. The medicinal value of plants lies in their containment of some natural compounds, the most important of these bioactive constituents of plants include alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, phenolic and others.
Lemongrass, (Cymbopogon citratus) an aromatic herb. The plant also contained flavonoids which were phenolic compounds that serve as flavouring ingredients of plant leaves, higher contents of tannins, flavonoids and terpenoids were observed than coumarin in lemongrass (C.citratus), Isoorientin, Caffeic acid, Quercetin and Chlorogenic acid. Lemongrass was found in folk remedy for coughs, consumption, malaria, pneumonia and vascular disorders. Researchers have found that lemongrass holds antibacterial, antifungal, antitumoral, and anticancer and insecticide activities and even the antimicrobial activity. The aim of study is to examine the phytochemical screening, and physico-chemical analysis of lemongrass hydrosol.
The present work evaluates the herbal waters/ hydrosol of Lemongrass obtained as innovative commercial products of a steam distillation process.
The following tables provide records on the most commonly tested physico-chemical, phytochemicals, and Microbiological evaluation in Lemongrass Hydrosol.
|Lemongrass Hydrosol/ Herb Water
|Steam distillation only
|100% chemical & preservative free
|Cosmetic, Body & Skincare, Health & Wellness, Aromatherapy, Natural perfumery
This parameter is done to analyse the physicochemical, phytochemical and microbial activity test of Lemongrass Hydrosol.
Various physico-chemical parameters of Lemongrass hydrosol were analysed which were important for production of value added products.
|Transparent liquid, like water
|Clear colourless to slightly cloudy liquid
|Fresh, grassy, lemony
|Soluble in water & alcohol, insoluble in fat/fixed oils
|Heavy Metal Test
The following result were obtained after performing the phytochemical test:
This method includes the selective and successive extraction of the plant phytochemical. The analysis of the presence of the main group of natural constituents present in the plant extract was done using different specific reagents. Chemical tests were done to identify bioactive compounds of pharmacological importance through standard methods. Phytochemicals such as mentioned below were qualitatively determined.
|Lemongrass Hydrosol Specification
|Highly presence of red colour
|Highly presence of green colour
|Presence of foam formation
|Highly presenmc of reddish brown colour
|No presence of yellow colour
|Highly presence of yellowish/greenish fluorescence
|Aerobic Mesophilic Bacterial Count
|Yeast and Mould
Microbiological evaluation of a sample is the use of biological, biochemical, molecular or chemical methods for the identification of microorganisms in a sample.
Formation of red colour indicates the presence of flavonoids.
Formation of green colour indicates the presence of tannin.
Formation of foam indicates the presence of saponin.
Formation of reddish-brown colour indicates the presence of terpenoids.
There is no presence of yellow colour which shows there is no presence of coumarin.
Formation of yellow-greenish fluorescence indicates the presence of steroids.
The study revealed the presence of several phytochemicals present in lemongrass hydrosol like flavonoids, tannins, terpenoids and phenolic compounds constituents which play a role in human health and wellness.
