Spring is in the air! It’s time to do our spring cleansing – in our homes and our bodies.
We want to clean out the old, the worn, and the tired. We’d like to create a healthier place of clarity for peace and inspiration.
To cleanse our bodies there are several important areas to consider – the colon, liver and kidneys are key and additionally a blood cleanse can be helpful for your overall system. As well skin sloughing (gentle exfoliates and then natural skin moisturizers like tea seed oil) addresses the largest organ of your body.
You can use your Libre Tea glass to prepare cleansing teas conveniently. You will find several cleansing teas, with a wide variety of ingredients available at your local health food store and online.
Here is a list of healing herbs and their benefits for spring cleansing:
