About lemongrass:
We absolutely love lemongrass - from the aroma to the list of health benefits. 

Lemongrass contains antioxidants, anti-fungal qualities, and antimicrobial qualities. Lemongrass is known to

  • Support healthy cholesterol
  • Support detoxification
  • Have anti-cancer properties
  • Fight bacterial infections
  • Ease some gastrointestinal disorders
  • Help with insomnia
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Lower fevers
  • Alleviate pain from headaches and migraines
  • Helps stabilize blood sugar
  • Help relieve pain and discomfort from rheumatism
  • Help to restore the immune system

We are more interested in the use of lemongrass on skin/hair, aromatherapy, and its natural ability to repel insects. Many natural human mosquito repellants contain lemongrass. Natural pet products include it for its repellant effects on lice, fleas, and ticks.  

Lemongrass is a very effective natural astringent (cleanser) with toning qualities which helps stimulate blood circulation and tone up dermal tissues.

Used in aromatherapy - lemongrass is known to revitalize the mind and soul!
