You can buy this on the market. You're in India right? Actually lemon grass is being used there as a flavoring, medical herb, and perfumes. In other country, it is also commonly used in teas, soups, and curries. It is also suitable for poultry, fish, and seafood. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cymbopogon

Aloe vera gel from the houseplant aloe vera is often used as a soothing lotion for extra dry skin. This wonderful substance is antiseptic, antifungal and able to cool hot dry skin - perfect for dry skin cures.

Good advice - I would also consider what your body type ?dosha was, which is about understanding a little about ayurveda. depending on your dosha would depend on whether oats or lemon grass would be ok for you. Sometimes if the problem is severe it needs us to look deeper at our coinstitution and this is what ayurveda can do for you - go to www.doshaforlife.com to fill in the online questionnaire to find out your body type. thanks for post
