How to do a New Years' Teatox!
Can you believe that it is now 2017?! As we enter the New Year, many are looking to make a fresh start and that is why the Teatox trend is hotter than ever! Perhaps nothing is better to help you cleanse your body than sipping healthful tea blends that can help invigorate your body from the inside out! Please make sure to check with your doctor before adding teas to your daily routine AND don’t be persuaded by the word “Teatox” in the tea title when choosing a tea. Too many people looking to detox with tea or “teatox” are stuck looking for a tea that has the word teatox on the label. Don’t be one of them! There are many great teas that are beneficial to your body that can be found at your local health food store! Here are some of our favorites to help you get 2017 off to a great start!
A Denver favorite, Restorative Rites teas are formulated by an herbalist and a nutritionist with herbs used in traditional folk healing practices. Their Beautifying Teas can be both sipped and used to steam the face for a luxurious facial. Make sure to check out Miss Tilly Rosalie’s Beauty Tea to clam, rejuvenate and pamper.
The Republic of Tea
Get Clean is a great herb tea for detoxing for those of us who may have had too much of a good thing. Feeling out of balance, a bit heavy or puffy? Then it’s time to get clean. This gentle naturally caffeine-free herbal detox blend helps the body as it helps to stimulate the liver, one of our natural cleansing mechanisms.
Kroeger Herb Teas
Based in Boulder, Colorado, Hanna Kroeger, master herbalist, created over 350 products, wrote more than 20 books, lectured extensively, helped thousands of people and has a great following. Her line of teas target specific parts of the body to help to detox and heal. For instance, her NRV Tea (Nerve tea) helps to rebuild exhausted nerves, which can be welcome relief for stressed-out bodies!
Mountain Rose Herb Teas
Mountain Rose Herbs offers a number of bulk, organic teas at amazing prices! Using tea compresses on the body is another way to Teatox. To make a tea compress, simply simmer some of the herbs in water and then use cheesecloth and an ace bandaid to apply the warm herbs to the body. To help fight after-holiday bloating, we especially like the duo of horsetail and mistletoe (don’t drink Mistletoe) applied as a compress to the outside to the stomach. Mistletoe compresses can also be helpful for varicose veins and horsetail massaged into the scalp can be beneficial for hair growth.
