A Gentle (And Easy) Cleanse – FlorEssence Tea!

FlorEssence Tea Cleanse

Tea Steeping and Sterilizing Jars

You probably all know of someone who has done a cleanse or have seen different cleanses advertised online or in health magazines.  There are so many out there, it can be hard to decide which cleanse to choose.  The big issue for me is being hungry when doing liquid type cleanses.  I do a lot of sports and am always out riding my bike, going to CrossFit, etc – I need calories!

I did one liquid cleanse (was supposed to be 12 days) and lasted a day and a half…I regularly do my own green veggie juice cleanse which I find works great for myself.  I’ll have a fresh green veggie juice first thing in the morning and eat my regular, healthy organic meals the rest of the day.

Straining Tea

That being said, I was excited to find the FlorEssence tea cleanse because you can still eat what you normally eat, you just add the tea to your routine.  I tried this cleanse for the first time last summer and really liked it.

This powerful Native American tea was a recommended treatment for decades by legendary Canadian nurse Rene Caisse, Dr. Charles Brusch, and health educator Elaine Alexander. It’s ingredients include certified organic Burdock root, Sheepshead sorrel, and Red Clover, as well as Slippery Elm, Watercress, Turkish Rhubarb, Kelp, and Blessed Thistle.

A tip from my local health food store was to buy the FlorEssence dry tea and brew it at home.  If you are tight on extra time, you can buy the tea already brewed and in a bottle although it is much more expensive to do this.  When brewing yourself, there are 3 packages of tea which brew 5 cups of Floressence per package.

Final Product! Ready to Cleanse!

The instructions are in the box but the process basically goes like this:

  1. Add 5 cups of water and 1 packet to a big stainless steel pot.  Bring to boil, lower heat to medium and let boil for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and steep for 12 hours.
  3. Sterilize canning jars and lids in hot water.
  4. Heat the tea again.
  5. Strain tea into measuring cup and then pour into sterilized jars.
  6. Seal the jars, cool on counter and then keep in fridge.
  7. Write the date on top of jars.

I personally take 2 oz per day a half hour before eating or drinking anything else first thing in the morning.
