This simple tea has liver support herbs as a base, and tasty herbs that make detox easy, one sip at a time. The tea is best simmered gently, rather than infused.

  • Arctium (Burdock)
  • Rumex (Yellow dock)
  • Taraxicum (Dandelion)
  • Mahonia (Oregon grape)
  • Glycyrrhiza (Licorice)
  • Foeniculum (Fennel)
  • Cinnamomum (Cinnamon)
  • Zingiber (Ginger)
  • Citrus aurantium (Orange)

Combine equal parts of each ingredient to start, adding more or less of the ginger, licorice, or cinnamon to adjust for personal tastes.Simmer 1 tsp of herb per 1 cup hot water (ideally, 5-6 tsp to 5-6 cups of water). The tea is to be prepared each morning and consumed throughout the day to support the liver and detoxification process.

CAUTION: If you have high blood pressure, omit the Licorice from the recipe.
