I usually simmer apples and cinnamon on the stove during the winter because it freshens up the house which gets stuffy being closed up all the time.

When I was a kid my grandpa made "indian tea" all the time, it's wonderful and I love it as much as the finest FGFOP grade teas. I didn't even
know it was lemon grass until a few years ago We have a few growing out front right now. I tried growing some from seeds but it took forever and
only a few sprouted, so I later ordered stalks from ebay and have grown them from there. I have also ordered pre-chopped and bagged lemongrass from
I used to drink it all the time and I definitely felt better while drinking it. I think I will make a cup right now, although I am curious if it will
have any affect upon blood pressure medication...a quick google search revealed nothing...
I order lemon grass chicken sometimes when I eat Chinese, I had no idea lemon grass itself offered other benefits on its own.
I'm not surprised though, another natural plant that has medicinal value, better enjoy it before the CDC decides to create the synthetic version.
I've been looking for plants to grow, I'm sure to add this one to the list now.
Thanks for the heads up.
