Spring Cleaning, It's Not Just For Your House

Spring is a great time to give your body a break by eliminating the things that are hard on it, such as sugar, alcohol, coffee and processed foods. It's not to late to do a little spring cleaning and Lemongrass has several detox products to choose from.

Burdock Red Clover Compound can be used as a gentle change of season formula that supports the eliminatory organs such as the skin, kidneys and liver. It will help clear the skin and support the body in recovering from illness or allergic reactions.

Dry brushing the skin is an excellent way to remove dead skin cells, increase circulation, and stimulate the immune system. Dry brushing is best done with a natural bristle body brush before a shower or bath. All brush strokes should move toward the heart.

Psyllium seed is high in soluble fiber making it a wonderful bulking laxative, able to absorb toxins and excess cholesterol in the digestive system. A usual dosage of psyllium seed husks is one teaspoon mixed in an eight-ounce glass of water or juice one to three times a day. Follow the psyllium with 2 eight-ounce glasses of water or herbal tea.

Bentonite clay is a natural mineral clay that can bind with toxins in the intestinal tract. It is best used with water and can be taken in addition to psyllium seed husks. Bentonite can also be used as an external mask to pull wastes from the skin. Use it on the face, or over the liver, kidneys, or any problem area.

This is just a few of the many detox products sold at Lemongrass. We would be happy to help with your spring cleaning, so come by and make it a Lemongrass Day!
