Treat your body to a herbal tea detox
If you over-indulged over Christmas and New Year – and let’s face it, who hasn’t – it’s time to start thinking about treating your body to a detoxing session.
There are various ways to go about doing this – aside from the usual advice of eating healthily, drinking plenty of water and exercising, you may also decide to incorporate herbal tea into your daily routine.
It has been hailed for decades for its relaxing properties, making it the perfect addition if you are looking to unwind and detox in 2013.
For most people, herbal tea is a safe way of detoxing the body and the great thing is that it is an easy routine to follow. All you have to do is substitute one of your usual caffeinated drinks for a herbal alternative and you will be well on your way to better wellbeing in 2013.
Types of herbal tea
As with other varieties of tea, there are numerous different types of herbal tea that you can try.
Personal preferences will vary, so you should try out several until you find one that is best suited to your palate.
Camomile tea, for example, is a very aromatic loose leaf tea that has a subtle but distinct taste – it can be brewed as strong or as weak as you like.
Another option is Peppermint Green Moroccan Mint, which is a blend of peppermint and organic gunpowder green tea.
It can be served hot, or if the day is particularly balmy, there is no reason why you cannot make it into a refreshing iced tea.
Alternatively, Lemon Grass Ginger and Goji Berry is ideal if you are in search of a tea to help you both relax and detox – for extra sweetness, it can be served with sugar or honey.
