In herbal medicine and aromatherapy, Lemongrass has a variety of uses. Lets take a look at some of its uses:
Lemongrass has been used to reduce joint and muscle pain and help headaches caused by viral infections. It can also help relieve exercise-induced muscle soreness. Lemongrass has the ability to reduce nervous tension, ease stress, boost mood, and uplift spirits.
Because lemongrass can fight bacteria and microbes both in and on the body, it can inhibit wound infection or infections of the urinary or respiratory tract. That antibacterial action also acts as a deodorant, combating body odor.
Taken as a tea, lemongrass can be diaphroetic, meaning it induces sweating and thereby can relieve or reduce fever.
Specifically, I use it in a variety of products for its therapeutic qualities, including salt scrub, aromatherapy spray, and lotions.
