I am currently concentrating on a gentle herbal detox to cleanse the blood, liver and lymph. Tea alone is not enough to provide a good detox but when combined with lifestyle changes like diet, exercise, getting enough sleep, drinking enough water and other healthy choices, detox tea can aid in the process of alleviating the symptoms of bloating, lack of energy, irritability and other issues. I have been working on a detox tea and it is ready to go!
When combined with other changes it can provide liver support, provide healthy looking skin, and cleanse the blood and lymphatic system.

Dandelion is such a nutritious herb! The flowers, leaves and roots can be used and contain high amounts of antioxidants flavonoids supporting the liver and renewing cells.

The leaves contain vitamins A, B, C, and zinc. Dandelion is naturally a diuretic and slightly bitter to help stimulate the liver and gallbladder.
