Lemongrass has been used historically as a wonderful astringent tonic for the skin and nails. Lemongrass aids in digestion and relieves pain. It is also an anti-depressant and it is cleansing.

With its lemony scent and hint of rose aroma, lemongrass is an essential ingredient in Thai and Indonesian cooking. Lemongrass grows wild in Indonesia, Indochina, and tropical Australia, and has been cultivated in Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka as a culinary herb and in India as a medicinal herb for thousands of years. It was considered by Paracelsus to be a cure-all and was his favorite and most revered herb.

Typical Preparations:

Universally used within tea blends for its flavor and aroma. Rarely seen in encapsulations or extracts, but equally as effective.

1 teaspoon of lemongrass powder equals one stalk of fresh lemongrass. Dried whole or cut lemongrass should be soaked for two hours in warm water before used in cooking.

Precautions:

Specific: No known precautions.
General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
