I love the robust and vibrant taste of lemongrass essential oil. Lemongrass is a staple in Thai cooking and it is always handy in my kitchen. It is my favourite go to in when preparing soups and stews, and it has become my favourite essential oil when making my bubba’s chicken soup “From the old country”. I have married a Slovak traditional meal with a Thai flavour – what a blend!
Lemongrass is anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. When taken internally it is very detoxifying through its ability to flush out toxins and helps with congestion and lymphatic drainage. “The citral and limonene content in lemongrass oil can kill or stifle the growth of bacteria and fungi. This will help you avoid getting infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, or other types of fungus. Studies in rats have proved that lemongrass essential oil is an effective anti-fungal and antibacterial agent” cited from Dr.Axe. Given the high amounts of fungus and dysbiosis found in many peoples digestive tract, lemongrass essential oil has great benefits when included in meal preparation.
I made this yummy Coconut Lemongrass Red Lentil soup using this doTerra recipe and it was delicious. I modified it by using my organic chicken bone broth.
