Lemongrass tea

The official name of louiza or lemongrass is lippia citriodora or Aloysia citrodora. It comes from South America and specifically from Chile and Peru and is cultivated for its aromatic leaves. It has a very special, clean, fruity aroma that resembles that of lemon. It is a medicinal flower that takes care of our good health in many ways, as a decoction or oil, since both its flowers and leaves are very beneficial for the human body.
In the past, louiza was a common ornamental plant in European gardens, but today it is rarely planted. It is a deciduous shrub, with a height of two meters, lanceolate leaves with a characteristic aroma and flowers in green and purple.
The plant uses its leaves that are collected in late summer. He loves the sun, he endures a lot in the cold. It grows best in neutral or slightly acidic soils that are rich in organic matter. It is propagated by cuttings in early March and needs pruning when its leaves fall in autumn.
Lemongrass blooms in summer and usually grows on the edges of country roads, in the stony soils of many islands, while in areas with fertile soil its height reaches one and a half meters. It is grown in gardens or in pots on the balcony and can withstand even if it is not watered often.
