Do you have Trouble Sleeping?

If you do, you are not alone. According to the National Sleep Foundation, it is estimated that 70 million people experience some sort of sleep disturbance in the United States. If you are one of these individuals, you know how frustrating it can be when you don't get a good nights sleep. 

At Lemongrass, our goal is to find the very best products for our loyal customers. We are really excited to carry a product from Herbs etc. called Deep Sleep. 

Deep Sleep is specific for;                                                                    

  • the inability to fall asleep
  • waking up to early in the morning                                            
  • experiencing unrefreshing sleep                                                
  • waking up frequently during the night, with difficulty falling back to sleep 

Deep Sleep will help;

  • reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep
  • stop excessive mind chatter
  • stop fitful or agitated sleep

I love this product because it is not habit forming and has no side effects. After using the product for a few nights I found I was sleeping more soundly and woke feeling refreshed. Deep Sleep works to re-educate the brains sleep center and creates positive sleep patterns. If you have been struggling to get a good nights sleep, stop by Lemongrass Natural Foods. We would love to talk with you about the benefits of this great product!

Mascara that's Good for Your Lashes!

My challenge with mascara started about 10 years ago.  After using the same mascara for many years, I started noticing that my eyelids would start to swell, get puffy then they would itch, burn and turn into alligator looking skin...not a very attractive sight.

It took me awhile to put 2 and 2 together and that my mascara was the culprit.  Then my search started to find a mascara that wouldn't cause a reaction.  After much experimenting I believe I have found my mascara! Larenim Mineralash mascara.  Larenim is excellent for senstive eyes, stays on all day, no flakes. 

If you have had mascara challenges check out Larenim, I think you will be as happy with it as I am.

Available in Jet Black & Black Brown.  Stop in and see our display.

Spring Cleaning, It's Not Just For Your House

Spring is a great time to give your body a break by eliminating the things that are hard on it, such as sugar, alcohol, coffee and processed foods. It's not to late to do a little spring cleaning and Lemongrass has several detox products to choose from.

Burdock Red Clover Compound can be used as a gentle change of season formula that supports the eliminatory organs such as the skin, kidneys and liver. It will help clear the skin and support the body in recovering from illness or allergic reactions.

Dry brushing the skin is an excellent way to remove dead skin cells, increase circulation, and stimulate the immune system. Dry brushing is best done with a natural bristle body brush before a shower or bath. All brush strokes should move toward the heart.

Psyllium seed is high in soluble fiber making it a wonderful bulking laxative, able to absorb toxins and excess cholesterol in the digestive system. A usual dosage of psyllium seed husks is one teaspoon mixed in an eight-ounce glass of water or juice one to three times a day. Follow the psyllium with 2 eight-ounce glasses of water or herbal tea.

Bentonite clay is a natural mineral clay that can bind with toxins in the intestinal tract. It is best used with water and can be taken in addition to psyllium seed husks. Bentonite can also be used as an external mask to pull wastes from the skin. Use it on the face, or over the liver, kidneys, or any problem area.

This is just a few of the many detox products sold at Lemongrass. We would be happy to help with your spring cleaning, so come by and make it a Lemongrass Day!
