Liver Detox Tea Formula

Liver Detox Tea Formula

If you sometimes overindulge during the holidays, this tea formula can help to detoxify a sluggish system, improving circulation of blood and energy to the liver.

10 g dandelion root
10 g burdock root
5 g fennel
5 g ginger
5 g milk thistle
2 g mugwort

1. Mix the dried herbs with 1 1/3 quarts of pure water and bring to a boil in a non-aluminum cooking pot. Simmer slowly for about 20 minutes, then remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes.

2. Strain into a bottle and take 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of warm tea, 3 times per day.

3. Extra tea may be kept fresh in the refrigerator, but each dose should be warmed up before drinking.
