4 Detox Teas to Try, Waiting on Martha

One of the best things you can do for your body is support its natural detox system.  Yes, that’s right; your body knows how to do it well on its own.  But the bonus here is that there are simple concoctions and DIY detox tea recipes that can help your body get the job done even better, and kickstart healthier habits in general.  

As part of our “Renew” path this month, I’m setting out to sip on these DIY detox teas at home every night.  I’m thinking of it as a treat I’m giving myself to feel better from the inside out.  See, the teas—with their rockstar ingredients like dandelion root, cerasee, ginger, green tea and more—can do more than rid the body of harmful toxin buildup; they give you increased energy, stronger immunity, and even stress relief. That being said, herbal tea is one of my favorite ways to detox this time of year especially, because it’s a simple, soothing addition to my daily routine, and it’s known to work wonders for the mind, body and soul.  Seriously, how good is settling into bed with a cup of hot tea in-hand?!  

Check out the four easy recipes below, and tell me which DIY detox tea is calling your name!  And if DIY isn’t your thing, check out a few of our favorite teas you can get delivered to your door.  Truly, MKR

Green Tea Detox

Yogi Teas Super Antioxidant Green Tea

Shop Now >

The MVP of natural detoxing is definitely green tea.  Green tea doesn’t detox toxins all on its own (your body has a pretty good system to do that), but it is packed with the natural polyphenols that support the body when it’s detoxin’. Polyphenols have a direct impact on your liver (the body’s major detox organ), and they’re antioxidants that fight free radicals. 

This detox tea is incredibly easy to mix up; simply add honey and lemon to your steeping green tea

GREEN TEA DETOX
Ingredients:

1 slice lemon
1 green tea bag
1 teaspoon honey
8-10 oz. water
