lemongrass-phx
Manufacturer: HerbCo Phoenix

Native to India, lemon grass can be grown in any hot, moist climate in sandy, well-drained soil. In the United States it is grown in Florida and California, but can be greenhouse grown anywhere with proper temperature and humidity. Because of its fibrous, sinewy structure, the lower bulb of the lemon grass is normally cut into small sections of stalk and "bruised" or crushed before adding to a dish.

epazote
Manufacturer: HerbCo Phoenix
(Dysphania ambosioides)

Epazote is a leafy vegetable common to Southern Mexico that is used in traditional Mexican cooking.  It is noted for its powerful fragrance, which has been described as having essences of mint, gasoline, and even bleach; however the aroma mellows considerably after cooking.  Epazote is used in black bean dishes, where it is boiled to extract flavor.
