Let’s take a look at other ways we can cleanse our livers in Spring. Cleansing means eliminating toxins from our body (de-tox) whilst ideally slowly down the re-tox, and this isn’t only about cleaner eating and drinking.

What: An ancient Ayurvedic natural remedy for improving health. It involves the use of pure oils to pull out. It’s a great habit to get into first thing in the morning before you do anything else. It feels a bit weird at first but you’ll quickly get used to it, plus once you see and feel the results – you’ll be a convert.

Why: Whitens teeth, detoxifies, makes for clearer skin, improved energy. It helps to pull out damaging bacteria, fungus and other harmful organisms from your mouth, teeth, gums and throat.

How: Use about 1tbsp coconut, olive, hemp, pumpkin seed or macadamia oil – some people like to use ghee but I’d personally rather not use animal products. Swish for at least 5 minutes (up to 20) then spit out into a paper bag, or in the garden. For a more intense detox, add a drop of an essential oil like tea tree, peppermint, lemon or eucalyptus. I usually make up a 100ml bottle of coconut, pumpkin seed and hemp oils then add a few drops each of one or all of the above oils. (Put it in a wide mouth jar in the cooler months and use a spoon to get it out, as the coconut will solidify.)
