A great tea I enjoy for stimulating and cleansing my liver and kidneys!
I have found the dandelion root to be a master tonic for my liver, really helping to stimulate the flow of bile and enhancing my digestive capabilities.
I find any stagnant digestion from both my liver and bowls is cleared up with the regular use of this tea throughout the day.
All Organic Ingredient:
- Dandelion Root
- Marshmallow Root
- Rose Hips
I also notice great results with this tea stimulating my kidney function to help me eliminate toxins more effectively through my urine.
For me, because of its super mucilaginous qualities, the marshmallow root in this tea is very soothing for my kidneys and digestive system, helping to cool any inflammation I may be experiencing in these systems.
By having yarrow in this blend, I feel there is a deeper cleansing action happening in my body as the yarrow seems to also help stimulate my liver function, as well as helping to better move any stagnant blood I have through my liver for clarification.
Rose hips bring in a delicious nourishing dose of vitamin c for me in this blend. The sour flavour is a great tasting addition to this tea which I find so nourishing as well as cleansing for my system.
I get best results with this tea by brewing up a large amount at once, usually a 1 liter mason jar. This way I have the tea readily available and I can sip on it throughout the day without having to make a fresh cup each time.
The second key for my success with this tea is steeping it for a super long time so I can get the most goodness out of the herbs. I do this by simply placing about 1 teaspoon of herb per cup of water (so 3-4 tsps in 1 liter mason jar) in the jar and then pouring the hot water over the herbs in the jar and leaving it like that for the rest of the day to steep.
I don’t strain out the herbs as I drink from the jar, as I find them to mostly all settle to the bottom where they continue to enhance the effectiveness of the tea. Over the day, the tea gets stronger and I find it works better for me. I often store it in the refrigerator as it cools down so it keeps even longer and if I don’t drink it all in one day, it is still good the next day.
Finally, I find this tea blend to work best for me when I take a few sips 5 – 10 minutes before each time I eat. This way I notice the tea stimulates my digestion and prepares my body to receive the food I am about to ingest, thus enhancing my digestive ability.
I also find it nice to take about 30 mins after meals, especially if the meal was heavy and my digestion needs a little extra help to process the foods.
These herbs have helped me so much and I would love for you to also experience the help they have to offer. See what you think.
