Did you know you can use lemongrass as a firestarter?
I only found out about this use recently, thanks to my pastor here. He demonstrated how to roast a breadfruit and when doing so, lit the fire with a rolled up hoop of dried lemongrass. Awesome.
The grass hoop I burn at the end of the video wasn’t the best example as it was made from old grass I pulled from the edges of a lemongrass plant. If you cut and make your own loops, then dry them, they have more oil and burn stronger.
Lemongrass is a great herb – and it lights things on fire. Win-win.
Have a wonderful Lord’s Day, everyone.

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”
“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
You shall break[a] them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”
Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
-Psalm 2, NKJV
