Living Well with Lemongrass

Living Well with Lemongrass

Whether you decide to cook with it or steep it in a hot cup of tea, our herb for this week has multiple benefits. Lemongrass can be found in two of our tea blends , including one of our newer additions, the butterfly pea blend . A popular ingredient in many international cuisines, it packs a flavorful punch no matter how you decide to use it.

Now let's get to the health benefits: “Lemongrass is natural diuretic and can be used as a detox to help kick-start your metabolism,” says Dr. Kristal. “It is a great alternative to sugary drinks, as it is full of antioxidants that prevent cellular dysfunction”.

To recap, lemongrass can help you lose weight, help you maintain healthy arteries, and act as a preventative for liver failure and edema through its diuretic properties. Next time you’re at the farm, ask for a sample of our lemongrass blends to find out how tasty it can be to do something great for your health.

Keep Yourself in Mint Condition

Keep Yourself in Mint Condition

Last week we explored the benefits of pineapple mint with Dr. Kristal Richardson, and this week will be an expansion on that with the healing properties of mint (an herb in so, so many of our products). 


There are many benefits to drinking a cup of tea with mint, including it as an ingredient in your meal, or using the pure essential oils from it topically. It can help with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), relieve indigestion when combined with caraway, and even improve your memory!


Here’s another thing to keep in mind as we enter the cold weather season in the coming months: it helps you clear your sinuses.


“Mint tea is a great way to clear up your sinus…yes, the sinuses,” says Dr. Kristal Richardson. “Research has demonstrated that menthol, the active ingredient in mint, improves airflow in the nasal cavity. So, the next time you have sinus congestion and you need to breathe, drink a cup of mint tea.”


Let one tablespoon of mint simmer in hot water for five to ten minutes, then enjoy its many benefits. Stay tuned for next week’s exploration of the various herbal remedies available at Fangboner Farms!
