What is lemongrass?

  1. Lemongrass is therefore popular as a herb and as an ornamental plant for gardens and parks! The long stems of the plant give a fresh taste to dishes in which they are cooked, something that is often done in Asian cuisine in particular. Lemongrass tea is also a household name in many Eastern countries.

Lemongrass tea

  1. And it is precisely that tea to which countless medicinal benefits are attributed! These long, tough stems are used throughout the tropical region as medicine for various ailments. For example, traditional doctors in Curaçao have been prescribing lemongrass for colds and flu for centuries, preferably using the herb in a very warm tea.

  1. The tea would also provide relief for coughing or bronchitis. In combination with anise leaf and guava it is also good for skin disorders and itching: on Java, pimples, itchy wounds and scrapes are treated with such a herbal bath. For this, the â € ˜teaâ € ™ is not drunk, but smeared on the skin.

Lemongrass oil

  1. In addition to tea, lemongrass oil is also used as a medicine. This essential oil has long been used for inflammation and infections, and scientific research in 2012 indeed discovered that certain substances in lemongrass work particularly well against the development of certain types of bacteria. [! 140587 => 1140 = 7!] This also helps, for example, against stomach problems caused by the heliobacter pylori bacteria. A final useful application of lemongrass is that it refreshes the breath enormously. A cup of tea works well for this, but for a long-lasting noticeable effect you can also suck for a while on the root of the plant, which is otherwise not edible.

Lemongrass cutting

  1. If you now start making plans yourself to try lemon grass tea in the near future, it is important to take a good look at the preparation of the herb. The stems of the plant are quite stiff and hard, and it is not much use to throw them whole in your tea water!

  1. It is better to cut off the top and bottom, and then peel off the tough outside around the stem. You can cut the core that comes out in this way to make a tea. You can also cook the core in its entirety with, for example, rice, so that it gets a fresher taste. Take the lemongrass out of the rice before serving it!

Growing and preparing lemongrass

  1. If you want to grow lemongrass yourself, it will have to be done indoors - thanks to its tropical origin, this plant does not grow outside heated living rooms! Even indoors, it will take a long time to grow a really serious plant, so it is wise to plant the seeds early in the year.
