Loose Tea- Ayurvedic Detox
An adaptogenic tea blend meant to align the inner elements and forces of the body with the outer elements and forces of the universe. Our bodies are exposed to a number of toxins and stressors, making detoxification necessary to reset one's constitution, or prakriti, finding inner balance among the three Ayurvedic doshas, or mind-body types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Echinacea and lemongrass both allow the body to fight illness and disease.* Along with dandelion root, a known liver detoxifier, these ingredients best support physical imbalances in Kapha types.* Tulsi, also known as the Holy Basil, has a number of healing properties and is considered to be satvic, or peaceful in nature.* Combined with pacifying peppermint, emotional imbalances in Pitta types are properly soothed.* Lastly, ginger and dandelion root are thought to boost digestive fire, or agni, which can counteract imbalances in Vata types.* This delicious blend was formulated by Dr. Suhas and Dr. Manisha Kshirsagar, Directors of the Ayurvedic Healing and Integrative Wellness Clinic in Santa Cruz, California.
