The term detox is short for the word detoxification. The detoxification process removes potentially harmful materials that accumulate in the body. The term detoxification is most often associated with alcohol and drug treatment programs and the process the body goes through to return to a normal level of functioning. Detox is also associated with a process used in different diets to rid the body of harmful substances resulting from environment and dietary toxins. Detoxification, in this sense, is a purifying process that removes unhealthy substances from the body and lets the body return to a balanced natural state. One way to detox the body of harmful toxins is to drink herbal teas known to aid in the process of body purification and balance. You can purchase detox teas prepackaged or make your own at home.

Fennel, Cardamom, Coriander

The Pukka detox tea is a blend of several whole seed herbs. The tea is a combination of aniseed, fennel, cardamom, coriander, celery and liquorice root. It is used to purify and rejuvenate the body. Specifically, it is useful in relaxing the digestive process and cleansing the urinary tract, eliminating or clearing extra mucus, washing away body toxins and calming and strengthening the body in order to achieve a natural balance. It is caffeine free and is a certified organic tea.


The health value of ginger in a diet is significant. Ginger is a natural plant that is filled with useful antioxidants. Antioxidants help the body rid itself of free radicals, believed to affect blood vessel health, cancer and ageing. One of the affects of ginger is causing the body to sweat. Ginger has the same affect on the body as a sweat room or a sauna. The sweating process, caused by ingesting ginger tea, pushes toxins out through the pores of the body and eliminates their negative effect. People have used ginger for thousands of years to help alleviate nausea, decrease pain and reduce the discomfort associated with cramping and bloating.

Rosemary, Anise and Ginger

If you are feeling under the weather, a cup of rosemary ginger tea might be an effective way to rid your body of toxins that are keeping you feeling less well than you want to feel. Rosemary ginger tea helps symptoms of congestion, a sick stomach and other ailments associated with having a cold, allergies and the flu. Rosemary's uses include encouraging a healthy appetite and subduing nausea and stomach aches. Ginger, a natural antihistamine as well as an expectorant and decongestant, also helps fight nausea. Star anise, used in preparing rosemary ginger detox tea, has a distinct liquorice flavour and aids in loosening phlegm.
