Lemongrass ?>


Also known as “fever grass,” the tall and zesty blades of lemon grass were utilized as cholera and fever remedies in the traditional Ayurvedic medical treatments of India, the perennial’s homeland. According to an ancient Malaysian legend, lemongrass was once considered a sacred herb. Warriors believed that if they applied it as a balm to their bodies—accompanied by a special prayer, of course—it would prevent a sword from penetrating their skin. While we are in no rush to test this impregnable “magic cloak,” we do appreciate lemongrass for the other dangers it wards off anxiety, headaches, fever and a bad night’s sleep and more.
