DETOX TEA RECIPE 

Black Peppercorn berry, Carob pod, Cinnamon stick, Clove bud, Coriander seed, Fennel seed, Ginger rhizome, Hawthorn berry, Horsetail leaf, Juniper berry, Liquorice root, Orange peel, Parsley leaf, roasted Chicory, roasted Dandelion root, Uva Ursi leaf 

DOSAGE / HOW TO TAKE 

To make the tea as effective as possible, put 2 tablespoons of the herbs into 1 pint (600ml) of pure water, allowing the tea to steep in cold water overnight. In the morning, heat up to a boil while tightly covered, reduce and simmer for 15 minutes. Strain out the herbs but do not discard them. Drink 2 cups of the liquid as hot as possible and then put the herbs back into the pot. Add a tablespoon of fresh herbs and a further pint (600 ml) of pure water. Let it sit overnight and repeat the whole process again. Keep adding new herbs to the old ones for 3 days, then discard all the herbs and start again. 

THERAPUTIC ACTIONS

This formula is an extra strength detoxification formula. Each herb in this formula is famous for its cleansing ability and has hundreds of years of successful documented use for purifying the bloodstream and lymphatic system while detoxifying the entire body. It is based on an old East Indian digestive tea formulation known as yogi spiced tea. It is stimulating to the digestion, soothes the stomach, is mildly cleansing for the blood, while strengthening the heart, cleansing the skin, liver and gall bladder, and is a mild diuretic and disinfectant to the kidneys and bladder – it may make you urinate a little more an hour after ingestion. Best of all it is an excellent coffee replacement and tastes good. It increases the circulation but contains no caffeine and will help you to give up the coffee and tea habit. Not that I’m encouraging you to do this, but if you’ve had an indigestible meal, skip the coffee and sip a really hot mug of this tea to facilitate digestion. It is also the perfect tea after a liver flush in which to put your liver herbs. Add a little pure organic maple syrup to it if you want to moderate the spicy taste.
