The aroma of lemongrass will instantly energize you and is useful when suffering from a cold. Take a warm bath and slather it from head to toe and enjoy its beneficial properties while pampering your skin.
We grow our own lemongrass and its a hardy tall grass with sometimes sharp leaves that gives off a strong lemon scent. We use it for teas, cooking and natural body care. It loves sunny sandy soil, here in Florida and it just grows and grows. Our lemongrass was originally ordered through an organic nursery about 10 years ago and each year , we divide it and increase its presence here on the farm. It is excellent as a natural bug repellent for our vegetables in our organically grown garden. The only downside, is when we bruise a lot of the leaves, it activates the essential oils and attracts our honeybees. Honey bees love lemongrass because the essential oil mimics the pheromone honeybees produce with their nasonov gland. They won't sting us but I'd rather they be out collecting nectar instead of getting in the way while we tend the plants.
We like to cut a handful of the grass and braid it to make a necklace to wear before heading out into our woods. Its amazing to use to keep away mosquitoes and prevent those sneaky buggers from biting the back of our neck in the summer.
Lemongrass offers some relief from muscular ache and physical tension. It kills bacterial and fungal infections. Use it as a foot scrub to assist with athletes foot or any fungal infection.
