However, it has a use cooldown, so eating it multiple times in a row won't attribute to sickness loss.

Distribution

Main article: Foraging

Lemongrass can only be found via foraging, finding 2-8 at a time. The chances of finding Lemongrass is extremely low, unless the player has the herbalist Herbalist trait or has read The Herbalist The Herbalist magazine.

Like other plants, Lemongrass cannot be found during winter. It is most common in deep forest, however can also be found in forest, vegetation, farmland and farm zones.

Park rangers will have a massive chance increase in finding Lemongrass, whilst veterans, farmers, chefs, burger flippers, doctors, nurses, fitness instructors and being unemployed will have a small chance increase.

Having the herbalist trait will further increase the chance of finding Lemongrass, whilst having the former scout, hiker, hunter, gardener, outdoorsman, cook or nutritionist traits will provide a minor increase.
