Things that are good for your body internally are often good for your body externally as well, which is why I like to use organic teas when making my soaps. Teas have been used in various medicinal ways for centuries. My great grandmother was a full-blooded Cherokee Indian who cared for sick people by wrapping them in clothes that had been soaked in herbal teas. I'm told she "healed" many people that way. Whether or not these practices work, you can't deny the smell of lemongrass tea is lovely - and so is this soap. With lemongrass leaves throughout this soap, you get a gentle exfoliating effect while you bathe. This is one of my favorites so far!
