Our brand story is based on the fateful meeting of the founders of Lemongrass House, Bobby and Palitas, almost 30 years ago and the love that unleashed the knowledge of both and turned the hobby into a successful business. Even before arriving in Thailand, the American Bobby had mastered aromatherapy, while the Thai Palita, growing up in a farming family, had always been close to nature. Palita has taken care of her feminine beauty and health since childhood, using the family secrets of herbal ingredients, their extracts and oils, cherished for generations, experiencing how these all-around natural gifts can heal, rejuvenate and maintain beautiful, healthy skin. As true children of nature, Thais have long used only fresh herbs and fruits to make scrubs, masks and creams. Thus, the beautiful union of these two people became a family and also the basis of the company Lemongrass House.se”.
Many ask us why the Lemongrass House (translated from English) is the name of the companyums?
Lemongrass is a widespread plant in Thailand, it grows everywhere, it is a long grass with a unique citrus scent, which can be felt by rubbing part of the leaves of this herb. Lemongrass is used in a variety of ways, both in cooking as a national spice, in making tea and in flavoring rooms. Lemongrass plant juice perfectly repels insects and kills pathogenic bacteria. Lemongrass is rich in essential oils. The gentle citrus aroma of this herb tones the body, reduces headaches and helps with colds. We are not afraid to say that this plant is one of the symbols of Thailand. The endless fields of lemongrass that sink into the humidity of the monsoon rain or dry in the southern sun, swaying in the warm wind flow ... Since ancient times, lemongrass has been a real natural treasure for the people of the East, which is why this Thai symbol has become the main scent and inspiration of Lemongrass House!!
