Lemongrass Native Australian
Australian Native Lemongrass is an aromatic grass, with a strong citrus odour, traditionally used in First people medicine to treat flu symptoms, chest infections and skin sores. The stalks and leaves may be used in tea or as a fragrant flavouring ingredient in soups, curries, sauces, marinades and cakes. As a medical herb, the leaves and roots of the Native Lemongrass can be combined with hot water as a steam inhalation remedy for colds and chest congestion. They may also be rubbed on the body to help treat aches, pains and skin sores. Native Lemongrass tea is comparable to aspirin in its effectiveness at treating headaches and inflammation. The stalks have been uncut to retain as much essential oil as possible.
To use this product take a small pinch of leaves, crush in the palm of your hand, then infuse in boiling water.
