Let’s get to know lemongrass – what is this aromatic ingredient in some delicious curry dishes also doing in some of our favorite Effervesce products?
Lemongrass is a tropical, aromatic herb that can grow to be six feet tall and eighteen inches wide! Its thin blades can range from green to blue to gold and you can spot tiny white flowers on the stalk. Certainly not your average grass, not the weed it might appear to be at first glance. And surprisingly despite the pleasant aroma, the plant does not actually contain any lemon or citrus oil!
Although when you think about lemongrass your mind first go to tasty Thai food and other culinary delights, the herb is actually expansively versatile and has been used in many ways over the ages. Did you know that lemongrass has been used for centuries as a herbal remedy? You might find lemongrass in your favorite natural insect repellent. You can even drink it as an addition to your lemonade or iced tea. Lemongrass can be used either fresh, dried, or in the form of an essential oil. The herb is also full of potential benefits, known for its antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
