In Australia, we have native lemongrass, which has been used for thousands of years by Aboriginal people as a cooking herb as well as a healing herb for colds, fever, skin sores and digestion. It has only been adopted in Western herbalism in the last century. Today, it is a well-known remedy to relieve gastrointestinal spasm, colic and gas.

Is this blend suitable for children?
