Herbal teas are powerful for healing, strengthening, and empowering the body and mind. While we tend to focus on how sipping medicinal herbal tea blends can help the body heal – there’s a whole lot more tea can do! A popular African beauty ritual is to use healing plants right on the surface of the skin. They rely on the healing properties of various herbs to help keep skin clear, clean and detoxified.
Feelings of sluggishness, bloating and the appearance of dull skin can signal the need for a body detox. Our detoxifying Cleanse Blend Organic Beauty Tea was purposely formulated by herbalists and nutritionists to remove impurities from your system, resulting in brighter glowing skin, improve digestion, promote weight loss and support you during your detox program.
It works on every level to cleanse the body, hydrate the skin and balance the mind. Dandelion root, cleavers and milk thistle is traditionally used to support the liver and encourage your body to drain the lymphatic system to eliminate toxins. Red clover promotes cleansing whilst supplying essential micronutrients which restore and revitalise your body. A fresh and delicious herbal addition to a detox or weight loss program combined with exercise and a balanced diet.
To make a facial toner or tonic, place 3tsp of tea in a pot or cup infuser. Brew until it has cooled down. Bottle in a glass container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. You can add essential oils to your toner to boost the performance. There are no preservatives in this recipe so bacteria will grow after 2 weeks.
For Drinking Tea
To make a cup of tea, place 2tsp of tea in a pot or cup infuser. brew for 2 - 5 minutes according to taste. The same leaves can be re-used for up to 3 infusions.
For Ice Tea
To make a cup of iced tea, simply double the amount of leaves per cup, prepare as usual, and pour over ice. If you like your ice tea sweetened we recommend using stevia or natural unrefined honey which is much better for you than refined sugar or artificial sweeteners. Garnish with sliced fruits and mint leaves. Take a sip and feel instantly refreshed and hydrated!
Cleanse Blend – Organic Beauty Tea
Using boiling water to steep can damage some of the leaves, so instead use water that is around 75°c (boiling water that has been allowed to cool for 3 minutes). Unlike dust tea, our whole-leaf herbal teas need to steep for longer as there is not as much surface area for the water to have contact with. Tea made with filtered water produces better results.
