Benefits of lemongrass in your laundry

soapnut liquid laundry lemongrass

Lemongrass is very popular in South East Asia, typically used as an essential oil to diffuse around the home to give a sense of peace, balance and harmony. Also used as a massage oil to soothe those aching muscles.

Do you know that lemongrass has much more benefits?
Let me share with you & also let you in on why lemongrass essential oil has been infused into Soapnut Republic Liquid Laundry.

Benefits of lemongrass

  1. Large source of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C) and minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, copper, zinc, and iron), hence, has high nutritional value
  2. Contains antioxidants - you know what that means :)
  3. Possesses anti-hyperlipidemic and anti-hypercholesterolemic properties, which means its great for reducing cholesterol.
  4. Has anti-inflammatory properties which helps in stomach disorders
  5. Great for flu and nasal blockages, since it is rich with Vit C (proven, my Husband takes lemongrass tea whenever a cold strikes)
  6. Main component is lemonal or citrate which has anti-fungal and antimicrobial qualities, so great for treating infections (yeast, athlete's foot, etc)

The list actually goes on, but let's turn our attention to why lemongrass is suitable and is great in laundry cleaning?

Antimicrobial
Gets rid of bacteria naturally, yes, naturally. Don't use chemical anti-septic as these are harmful to your body.

Antifungal
Singapore is hot, but it is also damp and humid, so clothing is also prone to mould and fungus. Lemongrass is anti fungal and will keep your clothing fresh.

Calming effect
Fresh scent of lemonal (lemongrass) on your clothing can lift spirits and calm nerves. Feel good every time you put on your clothes. :)

Finally, we all wear clothes all (most) of the time, so we cannot stress the importance of not using harmful chemicals on our clothes as it is in constant contact with our skin. Traditional laundry liquid are filled with chemicals that are harmful to breathe in and also harmful to the skin. Soapnut Republic Laundry Liquid is made of 100% natural soapnut berry extracts, infused with pure lemongrass essential oil. It is as natural as it gets, non toxic, allergen free and biodegradable.
