    You can use this as an energizing hair rinse. But you have to remove the honey, of course, or it’ll make your hair sticky. :)

    Chamomile has always been my favorite calming drink and I’ve always loved ginger lemongrass. So this is just so much WIN.

    Tested the recipe and tastes refreshing. But, i use the lemongrass, ginger and screwpine powder in https://sites.google.com/site/naturalhomeherbs. More faster and convenient. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi, thanks for the recipe. I’m looking forward to trying it. A question about the chamomile — should it steep with rest of the ingredients for 1 hour?

      I’m not sure about the test. However, lemongrass has healing properties. It should be good for general health :)

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. I made a pot the other day. Love the subtle lemongrass fragrance n the ginger that clears the throat. Good taken hot or cold. I didn’t add the pandan leaf. It still taste good.
