Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) or much known as Tanglad/Tanlad is used not only in cooking but also as herbal medicine because of its citrus scent and flavor.
Two of the illnesses it can cure are colds and flu: If you love drinking tea, then might as well try this out. I already did and after a day or two, I start to feel good again. Thanks to marriageandbeyond.com for suggesting this lemongrass tea.
- Cut about 5-10 leaves of lemongrass
- Put it in a small cooking pot, pour 2-3 cups of water then let simmer (You can add ginger for additional taste and aroma)
- Strain the juice in a cup
- You can put a slice of lemon or calamansi
- Mix it with sugar
- That’s it!
Enjoy this for 3-4 times a day. For about a couple of days, you can get back to your normal routine and even play your favorite excellent trumpet without coughing or sneezing.
