Lemongrass and Ginger herbal infusion.
One of the most popular herbals blends in the Tea Journeys herbals collection. Its a great blend of herbs to enjoy both hot and also as a cold infusion.

Both ginger and lemongrass are anti-inflammatory herbs. An article published in the "Journal of Medicinal Food" in 2005 notes that ginger shares the same properties as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pharmaceutical drugs but has been found to be more effective and have fewer side effects. A study published in "Microcirculation" in 2010 showed that a compound called citral found in lemongrass inhibits the formation of acid that causes inflammation. What was interesting about this study was that the results found both in short-term (2 weeks) and long-term (6 months) the results showed that inflammation in both the bowel and blood vessels was reduced, relieving pressure on bodily function.
