Lemongrass Powder

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

Lemongrass powder is made by grinding down dried lemongrass leaves. It can be sprinkled straight into your dish, whether it's curry, grilled chicken or fish. Many people prefer using lemongrass powder instead of a whole lemongrass because you can obtain a smooth, bits-free sauce or stock.

ALL NATURAL

No chemicals, additives, animal testing, or harsh industrial processing. Just pure, natural lemongrass powder.

BENEFITS

The strong, refreshing flavor of lemongrass is enough reason to try it out in teas and cocktails. But it’s even better to know how good it is for your health! Here are some of the health benefits of lemongrass you should know.

Here are all the benefits you can reap from using this powder:

MAY DETOXIFY THE BODY

According to a 2003 animal study, lemongrass may help in cleansing and flushing harmful toxic wastes from the body, as a result of its diuretic properties. Detoxification may help in the regulation of various organs of the body, including the liver and kidneys, while also possibly helping to lower the levels of uric acid. The possible diuretic effect of the herb helps in increasing the quantity and frequency of urination, which helps in maintaining digestive health and detoxifying the body.

MAY RELIEVE INSOMIA

Lemongrass tea is considered to be helpful in calming muscles and nerves that may aid in promoting sleep. Research has shown that lemongrass tea has sedative properties, which can help in increasing the duration of sleep.

MAY REDUCE FEVER

Lemongrass is a febrifuge and is also known as the ‘fever grass’ due to its beneficial effects in lowering fever. The possible antipyretic and diaphoretic effect is extensively used in Ayurvedic medicine for curing fever by inducing sweating.

MAY BOOST IMMUNITY

Lemongrass extracts may have a beneficial effect on the inflammatory actions of cytokines, which are the signaling molecules through which the cells communicate and respond to the body. Studies have shown that the extract exerts anti-inflammatory action and its constituent, citral, may be the cause of its inhibitory effect on cytokine production.

MAY IMPROVE SKINCARE

Lemongrass has been treasured as a skin tonic and makes an effective cleanser for oily or acne-prone skin, due to its astringent and antiseptic qualities. It can help in strengthening the skin tissues and toning up the pores while also sterilizing them. Care should be taken while using lemongrass products, as the undiluted application might lead to dermal irritation in some cases.

CAN BE USED IN AROMATHERAPY

Lemongrass consists of beneficial essential oils and compounds such as neroli, citronellol, myrcene, dipentene, geraniol, and methyl heptenone. The oil is extensively used in aromatherapy due to its therapeutic effects, which help in revitalizing the body.

The cooling effect of the essential oil is beneficial for the body during hot weather and promotes the revival of both the mind and soul. This oil possesses natural astringent and toning qualities that help stimulate blood circulation and tone up the dermal tissues.

It is used in therapeutic baths for calming the nerves and alleviating stress, fatigue, and anxiety.

MAY ELIMINATE BODY ODOR

Lemongrass is used in the manufacturing of deodorants due to its cleansing and antibacterial properties. Deodorants help combat unpleasant body odor and prevent fungal and bacterial infections. It can also be added to footbaths for sanitizing sore and smelly feet

CAN ACT AS AN INSECT REPELLENT

Lemongrass is used as a natural insect repellent and helps in preventing the occurrence of insect-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, and possibly Lyme disease. Studies have shown that lemongrass oil has antimalarial and anti-protozoan properties, which is why it is used in many mosquito repellents.

As you can see, there are so many benefits using lemongrass powder. So, what are you waiting for? Go, get some for yourself today!
