Lemongrass tea
by Paulette on Nov 26, 2013

Cut, organic lemongrass makes the perfect tea. Has a lot of flavor. My favorite hot drink.

lemongrass great in chicken soup!
by Jill on Oct 25, 2013

Lemongrass is delicious in chicken soup, as well. Add it in a way that it can be strained out of the broth at the end of cooking. It gives a subtle but noticeable flavor. We tried this in Cambodia, and now make it this way for a change of pace.

I like this
by Ela on Dec 12, 2012

Lemongrass is very calming. I like it a lot, and when I make Shoshanna's spicy lemonade recipe, I infuse the hot water with some lemongrass because of its soothing properties. Just remember that when you steep lemongrass tea, keep it covered so that the beneficial oils don't escape through the steam. This makes a relaxing nighttime tea, along with chamomile.

I just have to let you know how much I appreciate your business...

When it comes to health and healing I would say that I was from a “typical American” family. Hamburger helper and Rice-A-Roni every night, vaccines when they’re due and hospitals when you’re sick! But I thought that herbs sounded like a neat thing to study (not to mention the fact that we were uninsured! It sounded like a real money saver too!) so I went to the local library to get a few books.

Reading about herbs eventually led me into natural health and healing, food toxins and additives, whole and traditional foods, and lastly to women’s health and birthing. I have developed a true passion for natural health/healing and natural birthing (and I love reading now too!) ...It all started just browsing your website one day. I just wanted to let you know how you have touched my life. So thank you! And keep up all the good work! ~Megan
