What Are The Health Benefits of Lemongrass?

What are the health benefits of Lemongrass?

Native to tropical and subtropical countries in the Indian subcontinent as well as Indonesia and Malaysia, lemongrass is known for its citrusy scent and flavor in Eastern cuisine. It is also a popular herbal tea that is known for its calming effect. 

Lemongrass has the ability to restore balance to the skin. It has antibacterial properties that help dry up acne and breakouts by combatting the bacteria that cause them. With powerful astringent properties, lemongrass works as a wonderful toner. It deeply cleanses pores to reduce blackheads and whiteheads. It then proceeds to tighten pores and reduce excess production of oil resulting in clearer skin with a more youthful appearance. 

The amazing scent of Lemongrass

Lemongrass is wildly aromatic. It doesn’t, however, just make beauty products smell good. It also naturally deodorizes body odor making a perfect ingredient for a deodorant. With its antibacterial prowess, it also kills the bacteria that cause body odor resulting in wonderfully clean and sweet smelling pits without any of the harmful toxins that can wreak havoc on your lymphatic system. 

Lemongrass is also a natural diuretic which reduces water retention. This helps reduce puffiness. This, along with its ability to breakdown fat cells and stimulate circulation, results in a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. It has anti-fungal properties as well which can combat fungal conditions like athletes foot and nail fungus. 

Lemongrass for your crown

These properties also help combatting pesky scalp conditions like dandruff. Lemongrass is also a rich source of iron which can help reverse hair loss if it is caused by anemia. It balances oil production on the scalp and creates a conducive environment for hair follicles to grow. It unclogs pores and strengthens the hair roots.  

Packed with Vitamins A and C, lemongrass helps restore shine and luster to hair. It protects the hair shaft from UV radiation and enhances elasticity. It coats each strand of hair which makes hair glossier and prevents frizzy hair. By boosting circulation, it also ensures increased oxygen flow and nutrition to strengthen hair.
