Benefits of Lemongrass
Are you interested in improving your health and the health of your family and doing it naturally? No, drugs, no artificial chemically manufactured substances!
If the answer is yes, you have come to the right place. I have a passion for healthy living and natural products that keep me that way.
The uses of lemon grass (cymbopogon citratus) are well known throughout the world where this grass grows. Lemon grass grows in places like India, Brazil, Southeast Asia, China, the Philippines and even in the Southern United States. The best lemongrass essential oil comes from the mountains of India and is carefully processed by caring individuals with years of experience.
Traditionally, this plant has been used for the following health problems or conditions:
- Stomach Ache
- Gastric Ulcers
- Fungal infections
- Anti-inflammatory properties
Personally, I find lemon grass to have a strong but pleasing lemon fragrance.
I find this organic essential oil absorbs quickly into the blood stream. At times just by smelling this oil I can taste it within minutes. It also leaves a burning or warming sensation on the skin. This is especially true of the tender skin around the nostrils.
