Lemongrass and Ginger, botanical names, health benefits, now available on line!

Strawberries and Cream, Simon and Garfunkel, Bert and Ernie.  Just a few of the things that work brilliantly together...and here’s one more!

Lemongrass and Ginger is a herbal infusion that uses ingredients with two of my favourite botanical names.  Ginger is zingiber officinale – and it is zing-y!!!  Lemongrass is from the Cymbopogon family...the "pogon" bit means beard because of the appearance of the seed pods.  So as someone who is trying to cultivate one, I'm a big fan!

Lemongrass and ginger is a classic, a great drink to have at this time of the year.  Both ingredients give you a warm sensation, so ideal to beat off the cold weather.  They are naturally caffeine free which means it makes the perfect drink for later in the day. 

What are the health benefits of Lemongrass and Ginger? Both ingredients have been used in traditional medicine for a long time.  They have been used for their anti-inflammatory properties. Lemongrass has also been used as a digestive.

And ginger...did anyone else’s granny used to give them ginger biscuits if they felt car sick??? 

So why am I telling you about this?  We’ve been supplying cafés with our Lemongrass and Ginger catering packs for some time now and we had such a lot of enquiries from their customers about where they could some for home?  So we’ve now made Lemongrass and Ginger available on our website.  Here’s the link!
