Herb of the month title
Also known as- Cymbopogon citratum.


With its lemony scent and hint of rose aroma, lemon grass is an essential ingredient in Thai and Indonesian cooking. Lemon grass grows wild in Indonesia, Indochina, and tropical Australia, and it is cultivated in southeast Asia and Sri Lanka as a culinary herb and in India as a medicinal herb.

Constituents: The essential oil of lemon grass (0.2 to 0.5%, "West Indian lemon grass oil") consists mainly of citral. The herb also contains myrcene, nerol, limonene, linalool and beta-caryophyllene; the compounds make the essential oil subject to "curdling" when exposed to the air.

Parts Used;
The lower portion of the stalk.
Typical Preparations: Universally used within tea blends for its flavor and aroma. Rarely seen in encapsulations or extracts, but equally as effective.
Sliced fresh lemon grass, or ground powder (1 teaspoon of lemon grass powder equals one stalk of fresh lemongrass)

As a medicinal herb, lemon grass is mildly diuretic and a stimulant tonic. The herb promotes digestion of fats, and in Ayurvedic medicine a preparation of lemon grass with pepper has been used for relief of menstrual troubles and nausea. The herb stimulates perspiration, cooling the body in summer and lowering fevers any time of year. Lemon grass is well known a mild insect repellent (citronella) and the essential oil is used in perfumery.

Precautions: Take care to store lemon grass away from other foods and spices, as they make pick up its aroma. Soak dried whole lemon grass for two hours in warm water before using in cooking.

It's medicinal application in excessive doses should be avoided while pregnant.

Herbal Uses Apr Title
Lemongrass Title
Lemon grass is an amazing super-herb that has been used for hundreds of years for both culinary and medicinal purposes.

Lemongrass is a green and white, grass like plant with razor-like blades and it is grown across the planet in warm tropical climates.

It is native to the southern part of India but also found in abundance in other South East Asian countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia and Indonesia.

You can get fresh lemongrass stalks at various grocery stores, as well as other forms such as a dried herb or grounded lemon grass powder.

Lemongrass herb should be kept in an air tight container and placed in a dark, cool and dry place where it will keep for up to 2 years

Lemongrass imparts a distinct lemon flavor when cut or crushed due to a release of an essential oil called citral. The dried herb also releases this same flavor when steeped as a tea.

Lemongrass may smell like lemon, but it is more mild and sweet in flavor. It is not sour to taste.

Lemongrass has many health benefits and healing properties containing many compounds, oils, minerals and vitamins that are known to have anti-oxidant and disease preventing properties.

The primary chemical component in lemongrass is citral which has strong anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties.
Lemongrass therefore inhibits microbial and bacterial growth in the body, both internally and externally, helping to prevent and cure bacterial infections in the colon, stomach, urinary tract and respiratory system.

Its leaves and stems are high in folic acid and essential vitamins such as pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) and thiamin (vitamin B-1).

Lemongrass also contains many anti-oxidant minerals and vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, zinc, calcium, iron, manganese, copper, and magnesium.

Lemongrass oil when used in aromatherapy restores and revitalizes the whole body, helping to relieve the symptoms of headaches, body-aches, nervous exhaustion and stress-related conditions.

Lemongrass tea can act as a diuretic and is highly effective in flushing toxins and waste out of the body; improving the function of many different organs including the liver, spleen and kidneys.

It can help you lose weight by shedding unnecessary water along with the impurities. This allows you to have more energy and process fat more effectively.

Many people use lemongrass as a calmative agent; to help them deal with anxiety and nervousness People who suffer from Insomnia report its ability to help them rest and sleep deeply.

Lemongrass may also have effects on cancer cells. There are many studies online and in medical journals illustrating how lemongrass kills cancer cells without harming normal cells.

Recipe Corner decJan. title
Lemongrass is a stalky plant with a lemony scent that grows in many tropical climates, most notably in Southeast-Asia.  A common ingredient in Thai cooking, lemongrass providesazesty lemon flavor and aroma to many Thai dishes.  Lemon juice (or lime) may be substituted for lemongrass in a pinch, but citrus fruits will not be able to fully replicate itsparticularqualities.

Lemongrass is also thought to have numerous health benefits , especially when used in combination with other Thai spices such as garlic, fresh chilies, and coriander.  (For more onthehealth benefits of lemongrass and other coriander.  (For more on the health benefits of lemongrass and other Thai ingredients, see: Is Thai Food Good for You?) In fact,scientistsare now studying Thailand's favorite soup: Tom Yum Kung, which contains all of these herbs and spices, with lemongrass as the key player.  Tom Yum is thought tobecapable of combatting colds, flus, and even some cancers.  (To Make Tom Yum Soup yourself at home, see my Easy Tom Yum Soup Recipe.)
Shopping Tips When purchasing lemongrass, look for firm stalks (not soft or rubbery, which means it's too old).  Lower stalk should be pale yellow (almost white) in color, while upperstalks aregreen (do not purchase if outer leaves are crusty or brown).

Usually, fresh lemongrass is sold in groupings of 3-4 stalks, secured with an elastic band.  Stalks are approximately 1 foot long (or more).  Look for fresh lemongrass at your localgrocerystore or Asian market.  If you can't find it with the fresh produce, check the freezer section - lemongrass stalks are also sold in frozen packets.

Note: you can also buy prepared, ready-to-use lemongrass: look for it in tubs in the freezer section of your local Asian/Chinese grocery store.

Cooking with Lemongrass To use fresh lemongrass in your cooking, always cut off the lower bulb and remove tough outer leaves.  The main stalk (the yellow section) is what is used inThai cooking, althoughI always reserve the upper green "stem" and add this to my soups and curries for extra flavor.

From here, you have 2 options.  The first is the easier of the two.  Simply cut the yellow stalk into 2-3 inch lengths.  Then *bruise* these sections by bending them several times.Youcan also create superficial cuts along these sections with your knife, which will help release the lemon flavor.  Add these bruised stalks to your soup or curry.  When serving,remove thelemongrass pieces, or ask your guests to set them aside as they eat.

The second option is to slice the lemongrass.  In this case, we are preparing the lemongrass to be consumed, adding fiber, nutrients, and more flavor to the dish.  You will need averysharp knife, as the stalk is quite firm.  Cut the yellow section of ?the stalk into thin slices and place these in a food processor.  Process well.

Or, pound the slices with a pestle & mortar until softened and fragrant.  Now add this prepared lemongrass to your Thai recipe.

About Eating Lemongrass

Note that lemongrass is extremely fibrous and a little *stringy* (more like threads, actually). For this reason, be sure to cook your Thai dish thoroughly. If you are making a soup, for example, boil the lemongrass for at least 5-10 minutes in the broth in order for it to soften adequately.

Growing Your Own Lemongrass

If you would like to try growing your own lemongrass, simply buy a few stalks from the store and place the bulb end in water. Allow it to soak until roots form (this may take anywhere from 2 weeks to a month). Once your lemongrass has developed roots * an inch to 1 inch long, plant it in your garden, or in a pot with lots of rich soil.

Lemongrass likes sun and warm temperatures, so if you choose to keep it indoors as a houseplant, be sure to give it a south-facing window. Lemongrass makes a beautiful houseplant or ornamental garden plant and also has the benefit of being useful in Thai cooking. Enjoy!.

What is CBD?

CBD is shorthand for cannabidiol, one of more than one hundred cannabinoids present in cannabis, and 'industrial' hemp, grown for hempseed, hempseed oil, and fiber. The amounts of certain cannabinoids, along with other constituents such as terpenes, ketones, and aldehydes, to name a few (found in hemp essential oil) account for the wide variety of effects of various cannabis strains.

Hemp, which is legal in all 50 states, contains a relatively high concentration of CBD, and only trace amounts of other cannabinoids such as THC, CBN, etc. This allows for the CO2-extraction of CBD, and the formulation of CBD-containing blends used via oral ingestion.

CBD has none of the effects commonly associated with 'pot'. It doesn't get one 'high', though it has been researched for many potential health benefits. Researchers have found it to have potent anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and neuro-protective actions. The list of conditions CBD has been shown to positively benefit is long, and further information can be found throughout the Internet.

Our CBD oil formulas contain 1mg of CBD per each two drops. The ideal serving size for different users and circumstances is not exactly known. One study seems to indicate that a 2mg serving of CBD produced similar effects of a 200mg serving. We encourage individuals to experiment with their intake to find what is suitable for them.

How Does CBD Work?

Our bodies have their own endogenous cannabinoids and receptors. While the actual mechanisms of action of CBD are not yet completely understood. It appears that, while CBD does not bind to these receptors, it may prevent the breakdown of our own endogenous cannabinoids, thereby enhancing their activity.
For more information on health conditions where CBD has been the used in scientic research see for more.

Information Hwy Title
Color therapy, also known as chromotherapy, is often facilitated in the healing rooms of alternative health practitioners. Color therapy is classified as a vibrational healing modality. Vibrational medicine incorporates the use of chi energies within living organisms such as plants, gemstones and crystals, water, sunlight, and sound.

Color is simply a form of visible light, of electromagnetic energy. All the primary colors reflected in the rainbow carry their own unique healing properties. The sun alone is a wonderful healer! Just imagine what life would be like without sunshine. It has been proven that lack of sunlight contributes to depression for some people.

A therapist trained in color therapy applies light and color in the form of tools, visualization, or verbal suggestion to balance energy in the areas of our bodies that are lacking vibrance, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental.

Tools Used in Color Therapy

  • Gemstones
  • Candles / Lamps
  • Crystal Wands
  • Crystal and glass prisms
  • Colored fabrics
  • Color bath treatments
  • Colored eye lenses
  • Lasers

Color is introduced to us early in life. We use pastel pinks and blues in our nursery decors to welcome newborn babies into a gentle and restful atmosphere. How often have you been asked What is Your Favorite Color? You cannot probably remember the first time you were asked this question either. On your first day of kindergarten? When you were given your first box of Crayons?

History of Color
The history of color healing has its roots in ancient Egypt, indicate that color therapy has a connection with ancient civilizations of Atlantis, Lemuria, Mu, and Alatia.

Mothers Day Flowers
Scientific Color Studies

Applying the famous Luscher's Color Test can be quite bring about emotional reactions to individuals. Our reactions and attitudes to colors differ from person to person, which makes an interesting study in itself. Our attraction to certain colors may very well signal areas where we are imbalanced. Understanding why certain colors effect us favorably while others bring about negative feelings helps us along our healing journeys.

The Colors You Wear Can Reflect Your Emotional State
Have you taken inventory of your closet lately? You may be in a fashion rut and need to introduce some new articles of clothing into your wardrobe with different colors that will best reflect your mood swings. Wearing the wrong color can make you feel out of sorts with yourself.

You can use Color to balance your energies with each day by wearing the color of the day:

  1. Sunday- yellow
  2. Monday- White
  3. Tuesday- Red
  4. Wednesday- Purple
  5. Thursday- Blue
  6. Friday- Green
  7. Saturday- Black

Happy 2016 everyone! Its hard to believe that 2015 is over - frankly, I couldn’t wait until it was over.  There was difficulty, elation, fun and a lot of growth this last year.  There was, as most of you know, a health scare that could have made a huge impact on my life - but everything turned out for the best!  Because of the positive outcome of that situation, I have been going ahead with some fabulous plans for the future!  I can’t tell you how excited I am to continue my business into the 26th year; its been the best of all possible worlds, and I truly love what I do!
