Lemongrass, Cymbopogon citratus (Phillipines):

According to Shannon Becker, PhD RA "There is currently no known cure or vaccine for the current viral epidemic, which is caused by an enveloped virus, similar to the influenza A virus (IAV)....The essential oils and blends may, however be used in traditional ways for respiratory relief and psychological support." - Becker in Tisserand Institute Newsletter, March 2020. 

Soares et al. studied the antibacterial and antifungal activity of Cymbopogon citratus. ""These properties were studied on hospital isolated multidrug resistant strains Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia and their respective ATCC control strains. Pathogenic Candida albicans, Candida parapsilosis, and Candida tropicalis were also tested. Results of the present investigation provide evidence that the EO of Cymbopogon citratus could have a potential application in the treatment and prevention of diseases caused by Staphylococcus aureus methicillin-resistant strains and by vancomicin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis. Cymbopogon citratus EO is also effective against Candida albicans as well as the emerging Candida parapsilosis and Candida tropicalis pointing to its usefulness as an antifungal agent.

"Cymbopogon citratus Essential Oil exhibited high antifungal and antibacterial properties. Although the C. citratus EO inhibition was higher in Gram-positive bacteria an effect in Gram-negative bacteria was also shown. At the tested concentrations of the EO an extensive Candida spp. inhibition was shown. This effect was particularly pronounced in NCA species. C. citratus EO activity over Gram-positive multi-drug-resistant bacterial strains and over C. albicans and NAC species indicates a potential role in preventing spreading of hospital infections, namely by its use as an antiseptic for topical and for hand cleaning. Further studies are needed to establish the possibility of the systemic administration of this natural medicine." - Soares et al 2013 (see reference below).

In an in vitro study, Lemongrass showed significant HA inhibition when applied to the culture media. (Tisserand and Young 2014)
