The scent of lemongrass can help you stay calm and relaxed.
In their research, Brazilian scientists at the Federal University of Sergipe measured physical and psychological indicators such as the feeling of tension and heart rate in more than 40 subjects. Those who smelled lemongrass before the test were less anxious and tense.
Although their stress levels increased during the test, after the test they were lower than in the other subjects.
Lemongrass is a plant that originated in Sri Lanka and South India but is now grown in many countries around the world. It is also part of Asian cuisine.
This herb, besides helping us overcome stress, is great against inflammation in our body. According to some research, lemongrass is a great fighter against bad cholesterol, but only if such tea is consumed daily.
Therefore, if you notice stress and anxiety during this month, drink lemongrass tea.
