Lemongrass: The Purifying Plant
skin healing ∙ antibacterial ∙ digestive support
Lemongrass can be traced back to the 17th century in the Philippines and during this time it was shipped to other countries for use in perfumes and in cooking. For many Asian cultures lemongrass is consumed in recipes and is used in tea to treat fevers, irregular menstruation, skin irregularities and stomachaches. Due to its ability to reduce fever, Lemongrass earned the name “fever grass” in some cultures.
