OVERVIEW:

Lemongrass, also called citronella, has a lemony scent with a hint of rose. With its bright and fresh flavor with lemon notes, lemongrass is an essential ingredient in Thai and Indonesian cooking. Dried whole or cut lemongrass should be soaked for two hours in warm water before used in cooking. It is an extremely popular tea and used to add citrus flavor to soups, stews, curries, vegetables, rice, seafood, and meats.

 

Lemongrass has many other uses in the health and beauty industry and is commonly used as a bug repellant. The compounds that make up lemongrass have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal, insecticidal, and antiseptic properties and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Besides being relaxing and uplifting, enhancing the skin and promoting healthy cells, and helping to protect your stomach lining the benefits are too many to list, so grab a cup and make some tea!
