Lemongrass Tea: Natural Cure for Colds and Flu

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.

  3. Strain the juice in a cup
  4. You can put a slice of lemon or calamansi
