Lemongrass is one of my favourite healing herbs. It is an amazing super-herb that has been used for hundreds of years for both culinary and medicinal purposes. Lemongrass is a green and white, grass-like plant with razor-like blades and it is grown across the planet in warm tropical climates.
It imparts a distinct lemon flavour when cut or crushed due to a release of an essential oil called citral. The dried herb also releases this same flavour when steeped as a tea. Lemon grass tea is an excellent detoxifying agent. It has the ability to cleanse out the toxins found inside the body particularly the digestive and cardiovascular system. It eliminates the harmful elements in the body such as uric acids, contaminants and bad cholesterol. It also improves the blood circulation as well as the digestive system.
