This Week’s Feature: Lemongrass
I love lemongrass, it is a beautiful super-herb, with an aromatic flavour, popular through all of Asia.
Lemongrass has many healing effects, and traditionally has been used to treat fever, menstrual cramps, gas, infectious disease, rheumatism, colds, cancer,…its uses also extend to being a nerve tonic, and as a diuretic to flush toxins from the body, whilst restoring and revitalising the mind and body.
