The Perfection called Lemon Grass

So practically all my life I’ve had this awesome herb/grass growing in my backyard, but I never paid attention to it….particularly when my Dad called me to have a sip of it…I always took off in the opposite direction.

Fast forward to this year, when I became hooked to everything natural, started because I started battling with acne and residual spots on my face and I discovered… or rather fell in love with the plant in my backyard- Lemon Grass.
