We provide high-quality Rwanda lemongrass oil to the local and export markets. We source the raw fresh processed Rwanda lemongrass oil from family growers in the country.

Rwanda lemongrass oil is the product of the Cymbopogon citrus plant. Its main distinction from other edible oils is its lemonade fragrance. The reason it smells like lemon is the presence of citral acid which is around 75 to 90 percent. This makes it more of a flavoring agent. It also features in the artificial production of vitamin A.  The main production method for the product is the steam distillation, especially for large supplies.

Some of the health benefits of lemongrass oil are to overcome fatigue especially after long-distance travel. It also revitalizes the mind. The main industrial uses of the product are to make soap for toilet use, bathing agents and perfumes. This is simply because it dissolves in alcohol and thus passes as a sanitizer.

We source the raw materials for Rwanda lemongrass oil from Kirehe district in the eastern parts of the nation. Our family growers cultivate it on plots of less than two acres which allows them to manage the crop organically. They use only farmyard manure for soil enrichment and apply no chemical sprays.

We harvest lemongrass by cutting or twisting the stalk that has attained a thickness of ¼ inches. We go for the ground level grass-like vines as the softest part of the blade is at the bottom. We opt for plants that have reached at least 36 months in the farm as these have the highest oil yield. We cart the leaves away to the packing shed for cleaning and processing.

We process Rwanda lemongrass oil through a steam evaporation process.  We start by mixing leaves with the water and then place them in a boiler. The boiler injects steam into the solution of leaves and water. We then place the saturated leaves in a steam grid just above the water. The steam from the leaves now flows downward into the separate water below it.

The next process for Rwanda lemongrass oil production is that of the vaporization of the incoming steam by a coil inside the water chamber. This vapor, now in the form of distilled oil, mixes with water and transfers to the waiting condenser. The condenser contains a decantation beaker. Here, the vapor turns into two parts liquid. The heavier part is water which decants at the bottom. Oil is the lighter second part and it floats on top. We scoop the oil and send the water back to the evaporator to recover more dissolved oil.

We pack Rwanda lemongrass oil in PET bottles of the Dropper type. These come with vacuum sealed tops for airtight transportation. The smallest packages have 100-milliliter measures. We also have 250-milliliter and 1-liter size packages. We keep it in the dark purple, bluish, greenish bottles to put off the light. We feature the product labels inclusive of the name, the 100 percent ingredients, the packing date and the country of origin.

We store Rwanda lemongrass oil at the temperature of less than 5 degrees Celsius. We keep it in packaged form of 12 bottles per carton which stay in a darkened room environment. We transport the cargo in the recommended travel temperature of 2 to 6 degrees Celsius by our refrigerated vans. You can expect the consignment to reach you in the space of a day or two from the packing date.

In short, if you are after a great lemon-smelling vegetable product, then our Rwanda lemongrass oil fits the bill.
