This month we’re focusing on all things (re)fresh, so what better time to feature one of the freshest scents of all? You guessed it, mint!
Mint is a calming herb that has been used for thousands of years for its many soothing and energizing properties. It is used as a remedy for a range of conditions including gastrointestinal and inflammation. This ingredient works against harmful microbes and is rich in antioxidants and vitamins (A, C, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus to name a few!) Notably in aromatherapy, mint is promoted to help reduce pain, improve focus and mental function, as well as reducing that stress that we’re all too familiar with.
Yes, mint has many medicinal functions and can seriously reduce pesky headaches, muscle and joint pain, and even soothe itching from mosquito bites and other irritations. Did we mention that it’s even great on our skin?! This ingredient is a very useful tool in keeping us healthy and hydrated.
With its refreshingly cooling effect on our skin, mint can brighten our complexion and allow our skin to relax while acting on any of those blemishes that might be present. Its hydrating properties lock in all that good moisture by tightening our pores, which can also prevent blackheads! While boosting blood circulation, this ingredient will ensure that your skin is stimulated, healthy and well nourished.
So, now you’re wondering how you can enjoy all of these amazing benefits that mint has to offer? Don’t worry, Lemongrass House has got you covered. All of these featured products come in various scents to choose from, and you guessed it, mint is one of them!
Drip a few drops into your diffuser to offer stress reduction, aid mental focus and even treat cough and cold symptoms. Apply in small amounts to the skin for problems like headache, muscle aches, joint pain and itching.
Soften those dry winter lips with our lavender & mint lip balm. Its key ingredients like pure essential oils and coconut and avocado oils are rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids that help nourish and condition lips. Shea butter and beeswax act as a barrier to shield moisture in from the effects of harsh weather, with the addition of Manuka honey to sooth and heal.
Spritz this invigorating spray on tired feet and experience its long lasting cooling effect. Wild mint acts as an anti-bacterial ingredient and with extracts of aloe vera and lemon, this spray will give you the boost that you need to bring your feet back to life.
Salt Body Glow
Gently exfoliate and revitalize your winter skin. Concentrating on rough areas like elbows will leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. Don’t forget to follow with body cream!
Apply to skin when you wake up and before you go to bed, and especially after exfoliating. Our body cream is infused with soothing ingredients like cucumber, aloe vera and white orchid extracts. It will leave you feeling soft and hydrated. A perfect way to end the day, and this list.
Join us in feeling fresh and refreshed this month, and take advantage of all of these incredible benefits that mint has to offer.

January is “Hot Tea Month” - and with good reason!
This month we are focusing on refreshing our minds and bodies. A hot and nourishing pot of our Herbal Teas is a big part of it, so we’ve put together a breakdown of why some of our favourite Herbal Teas ingredients are helping us do just that.
Without bias, lemongrass is one of our favourite ingredients. It has a vibrant flavour profile with mildly sweet, minty and lemony notes enhanced by a sharp finish. Rich in antioxidants, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, this ingredient is highly beneficial and used to promote a healthy lifestyle including aiding in digestion, and is even known to help kickstart the metabolism and regulate cholesterol.
Bael Fruit มะตูม
Bael fruit, sometimes referred to as “wood apple,” has a distinct and comforting smoky aroma with a hint of sourness. It is indigenous to South and Southeast Asia and is most widely known for promoting and maintaining a healthy digestive system. One of bael fruit’s great qualities is that it’s very high in vitamins A, C, B1, B2, carotene, potassium and calcium - to name a few! It’s great consumed as a hot tea or even prepared as a cold drink in the warmer months.
Pandan, or “screw pine” is an incredibly versatile and aromatic plant that offers a sweet floral fragrance. While used for centuries in Southeast Asia, the Western interest in pandan is growing due to its health benefits and excellent culinary properties. This ingredient is full of vitamins and antioxidants such as beta-carotene, vitamin c, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin and is known to help manage blood sugar.
Kaffir lime is a type of citrus native to various parts of Asia. While the fruit is extremely versatile, the leaves are what is used to make this ingredient perfect for tea. It boasts a uniquely tart and pleasant flavour that pairs incredibly well with lemongrass, and the leaves aren’t as bitter as those of a regular lime. This ingredient is highly respected in herbal medicine, with many health benefits due to its high content of beneficial organic compounds. Kaffir can help to improve oral health, maintain the digestive system, and lower inflammation while boosting immunity, with an added bonus in stress reducing properties.
With all of these incredible ingredients (and more) let us fill you in on our process of making the teas!
All of our teas are harvested from our organic farm in the north of Thailand and each step is done by hand. First, the ingredients are carefully handpicked, washed and sliced. Next they are laid out to dry in the sun for three days before being gently fire roasted. From here, our teas are packed straight from the roasting pan, directly to your tea pot!

Winter is the perfect season to stop and take some time to unwind. Draw yourself a hot bath or get steamy in the shower and cleanse away your cares with our salt body glow or jojoba bead scrubs. These smoothing concoctions will exfoliate and soften, leaving your skin clean and renewed. Each one, with it’s unique plant properties is an excellent way to start your body care routine.
