Sugandhitṛṇa (सुगन्धितृण, “fragrant grass”) is a Sanskrit word referring to lemon grass, a species of plant from the Poaceae family. It is used throughout Ayurvedic literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. The official botanical name is Cymbopogon citratus, but is commonly referred to in English as “oil grass”, among aothers. The compound Sugandhitṛṇa is composed of the words Sugandhi (“fragrant” or “sweet-smelling”) and Tṛṇa (“grass” or “herb”).
This plant (Sugandhitṛṇa) is also mentioned as a medicine used for the treatment of all major fevers, as described in the Jvaracikitsā (or “the treatment of fever”) which forms the first chapter of the Sanskrit work called Mādhavacikitsā.
