We can all admit that in this modern, super polluted, and chemically contaminated world — the control we have over our exposure to toxins is limited basically to how we live (i.e. what we put in our mouth/garden soil, put on our skin, or use in the home).

Likewise, in an effort to maintain centering — through deeply aligning myself with the ebbs and flows of nature — I have made an intentional effort to focus on the effects of the lunar cycle as it relates to diet + detox (among other things).

Now, I look to the day(s) of and surrounding the New + Full Moons with great anticipation as they provide the perfect opportunity to guide my body through a gentle cleanse.

Part of my cleansing ritual involves the consumption of lots of herbal tea — and the herbs I use to create my custom cleanse tea are allies to our bodies by ::

  • supporting proper thyroid function
  • combating adrenal fatigue
  • aiding in healthy weight loss
  • improving the clarity of the skin
  • reducing the effects of Fibromyalgia
  • removing food cravings
  • lessening stress + anxiety + depression + mood swings
  • increasing libido
  • boosting focus
  • diminishing headaches/migraines

Green Gypsy Detox Tea

Ingredients
*Purchase organically-grown or wild-harvested herbs whenever possible.
*Parts are measured by volume not weight.

  • 2 parts Nettle leaf
  • 1 part Red Clover blossoms
  • 1 part Red Clover herb
  • 1 part True (sweet) Cinnamon chips
  • 1 part Dandelion leaf
  • 1/2 part Dandelion root
  • 1/2 part Burdock root
  • 1/2 part Orange peel
  • 1/2 part Ginger root
  • 1/4 part Lemon peel
  • 1/4 part Fennel seeds

Method

  1. Measure the parts of each of the herbs listed and mix in a large bowl until well combined.
  2. Grab your single serving tea carafe (this is my absolute favorite way to make a quick cup of loose leaf tea), tea infusers, and/or tea pots…and brew a cup! OR make a larger batch by adding 4 tablespoons of the herbal blend to a quart-size glass jar, fill the jar with just boiled water, steep for a few minutes, strain and enjoy. (Note: I get all of my loose leaf tea-making supplies online from Mountain Rose Herbs.)
  3. This herbal tea blend will keep stored in a cool, dark place for approximately 6 months. (Note: I like to store all of my teas in glass jars with tight-fitting lids.)

Usage

-Drink 3-4 cups of tea daily for up to 7 days, then stop for 3. Repeat cycle until desire results are achieved.
