Lemongrass is known for its health benefits to gut health, body-mind relaxation and better sleep. It has a sweet-citrusy flavor, and is rich in anti-oxidants.
Application of Lemongrass Leaves-
As a muscle soother (and menstrual friend): Brew a few dried leaves of lemongrass in hot water for 5 minutes. Strain and enjoy. You may add sweetner or additives of your choice. It is known to soothe the muscles, thus, helping with bloating & mentrual cramps as well.
As a taste enhancer for food items: Add lemongrass leaves while you cook your curries or vegetables to enhance their taste. You may even add a few leaves to your fresh juices for infusion purposes.
As face toner: Add some lemongrass leaves to water and let it steep for a few hours. Spray it on your face as toner. You can even use cooled lemongrass tea (without any sweetener/additives) for this purpose. Store it in refrigerator and use within 2-3 days.
As hair tea: Add some lemongrass leaves to water and let it steep for a few hours, or take some cooled lemongrass tea (without any sweetener/ additives). Use this to prepare your hair masks or last rinse after shampoo for shiny and mild aromatic hair.
As maceration to oils: Add some dried lemongrass leaves to an airtight clean container. Pour the bottle with any carrier oil of your choice. Close it and keep it in warm sun for a week. Use this oil for your hair, face or consumption purposes, as applicable, within 2-3 months.
As aromatherapy- Burn a few lemongrass leaves, or add it to melted wax/ diffusers for aromatherapy. It will leave a mild sweet-citrusy aroma in the place, and even helps with mild mosquitoes/ insects.
