This is a classic, traditional blend for the evening or when trying to relax. Herbals record of lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), “It has cancer fighting properties, can lower your cholesterol, and is rich with vitamins. Vitamins, such as, vitamin C, vitamin A and several of the B vitamins, including folate, or B9, Minerals in lemongrass tea include manganese, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous– are great for preventing birth defects, healing a cold, aiding digestive problems and with fighting off infections.” This tall tropical grass is used extensively as a tea in West Africa for a citrus flavored herbal tea known as citronnelle, and is used as a digestive and relaxing beverage. Citral, the active constituent of which Lemongrass has the highest concentration of any other plant, is a powerful antioxidant that detoxifies and aids in brain function. The herb is also a sedative and this has a relaxing, calming effect on the brain. The regular use of lemongrass relieves stress and improves sleep patterns and insomnia. Combined with kinkeliba/seh~haw, the lemongrass’s effects are potentiated to make a gentle, relaxing hot herbal tea that is deliciously soothing to the body, quieting over-stimulation and preparing one for a deep, profoundly restful sleep. People have reported having the most restful and deep sleep in a long time after consuming just seh~haw, but mixed with lemongrass it is a favorite herbal supplement for insomnia, waking during sleep, and leaves one feeling refreshed and rested in the morning.*
