Holistic spring detox

welcome spring with this uplifting blend

The rhythms of the seasons are seen by many ancient civilisations as important phases for the well-being of human beings. During the four seasons we can understand the meaning of life in the rhythms of nature. There are positive things you can do during each season to seek balance and maintain a connection with the shifting flow of the earth’s cycles. Through this way of living we discover the connection between ourselves and our environment.

Spring – An opportunity for dynamic growth and inspiration

Spring is a time for new beginnings and development. In nature animals are born, flowers are in bloom and plant life is green, fresh and abundant. Bring this into your own life and make spring the perfect season to start planting the seeds to follow through with ideas and implement changes. This is the perfect time to detox your body and spring clean your home and workplace!

Aromatherapy

According to Chinese medicine, this season is all about action, drive and new commencements. Help support the physical and mental adaptability of this purifying and productive period by bathing, vaporising and having a lymphatic drainage massage using pure essential oils of rosemary, grapefruit, coriander, petitgrain, basil and geranium.

Try cleansing away old skin cells and toxin build-up in the lymphatic system by exfoliating your body, dry skin brushing and detoxifying bathing rituals. Perfect Potion’s Detox collection consists of Detox Body Buff and Detox Massage Oil are wonderfully supporting purification products, leaving you feeling revitalised and renewed. The range uses plant-based oils, natural clays, mineral salts and purifying essential oils of juniper berry, cypress and grapefruit to effectively purify a congested bodily system and help to detox your skin.

Shedding of the Old

Your spring time diet should contain more liver and gallbladder cleansing foods of green leafy salads, seaweeds, lightly stir-fried vegetables, fresh herbs, artichokes, dandelion and chicory root, bitter and sour vegetarian soups. Start your day with a glass of lemon or lime juice in warm purified water to introduce a natural digestive aid into your stomach and allow the pectin to mop up fats, contributing to a well-functioning digestive system. Sip on fresh green vegetable juice throughout the day and brew up a cup of Perfect Potion Detox Herbal Tea every evening to nourish the blood and support the kidneys and liver.

Allergy Assistance

If you are suffering from allergies during the change of season, try taking a daily dose of raw honey that is local to your neighbourhood. The homeopathic theory is that consuming honey from where you live will help your body adapt to the allergens in the environment. This works like a natural antidote.

Give your nasal passages a good clean out with a neti pot. The saline irrigation instrument flushes out mucus, and rinses out any pollen hanging around a stuffy nose.

Saffron, parsley, thyme and vitamin C supplements act like natural antihistamines and will speed up the recovery of allergy-related symptoms. Aromatherapy recommends eucalyptus, sage, lavender, thyme, sandalwood, lemon myrtle and peppermint pure essential oils to open up nasal passages and relax the respiratory system.
