Lymphatic Cleansing Tea
Very few people understand the humble working of the lymphatic system. Basically, the lymphatic system consists of one-way channels into which excess fluids, called lymph, are absorbed. This fluid consists of waste materials and some white blood cells. It is not under pressure and only moves because of exercise or muscle contraction. Lymph moves towards the heart where it empties into veins. The two largest areas of lymph collection are just below the clavicles, areas that are often swollen or tender due to congestion in the lymphatic system. The left side carries more fluid than the right, explaining why so many people experience worse swelling on the left side.

Ingrid has formulated a tea to help with congestion of the lymph. The tea is pH balanced and gently stimulating. It has some of the same spices as found in Indian masala chai with the addition of galangal and several others, like star anise. The cleavers herb is the main lymphatic cleanser and the spices are more stimulating. The tea is available in two formulations, one with sarsaparilla and the other with violets. Otherwise, they are the same. They are also 100% organic.

 

 
   

Cleavers Tea, 5 oz.

This tea is pH balancing and stimulating to both the lymphatic and digestive systems. It is carminative and helps to reduce the gases in the gastrointestinal tract that cause bloating and distention. The herbs are aromatic because of their essential oils. My tea has orange peels, ginger, galangal, green cardamom, and star anise. This is a sort of "lymph chai."

Contains: organic cleavers herb, organic sarsaparilla root, organic ginger root, organic licorice root, organic star anise, organic galangal root, organic cardamom, organic orange peel, organic black pepper, and organic cloves.

Australia: not eligible for shipment due to orange peels in the tea.

Violet Tea, 5 oz.

This is basically the same as the Cleavers Tea except that violets have been substituted for sarsaparilla. It is a lymphatic stimulant and digestive aid, very tasty. Instructions are on the back of the foil pouch.

Contains: organic cleavers herb, organic blue violet herb, organic ginger root, organic licorice root, organic star anise, organic galangal root, organic cardamom, organic orange peel, organic black pepper, and organic cloves.

Australia: not eligible for shipment due to orange peels in the tea.
