Milk Thistle Tincture 100ml
Think of Milk Thistle as a tune-up for your liver. The liver is one of our hardest working and most important organs in the body. It filters and clears everything we're exposed to; food, drugs, alcohol, pollution - you name it! Milk Thistle protects and helps the liver with all its housekeeping.
When the liver is struggling to do its job by itself, it will turn to the skin to help eliminate toxins. This is when we may see skin disease such as psoriasis on the surface of the skin. Milk Thistle can support the liver in a cleanse so that it can function better without needing further assistance. It is also a fantastic herb for helping digestion because it stimulates the bile flow.
Presented in a beautiful, clear, refillable jar our Radiant Tea combines the very best blend of loose, organic herbs to create a wonderfully fragrant, cleansing tea.
Burdock Root has traditionally been used as an effective remedy for acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It has a long history of use in folk medicine as a blood purifier, diaphoretic (increases sweating), and a diuretic.
The herb also contains inulin, which helps to regulate the inflammatory responses initiated by the immune system - perfect for regulating the over reaction sometimes seen in conditions such as psoriasis.
Red clover reduces menopausal symptoms, helps maintain bone strength, improves cardiovascular health, and has been shown in studies to lower the risk for certain cancers, treats skin inflammation and fights respiratory infections.
Red Clover can be especially beneficial for soothing eczema, psoriasis and reducing anxiety.
Cleavers is particularly important for traditionally naturally treating ulcers, eczema, psoriasis, boils, abscesses, skin irritations, wounds and burns. Known traditionally for its use in tonifying and cleansing the Lymphatic system. It is a naturally diuretic so it is also good for the kidneys and urinary tract.
Because of its nourishing, diuretic, and anti-inflammatory properties, nettle tea is traditionally used as a natural beautifier for skin and hair. Studies have shown Nettle tea to help support the body in clearing clear acne and eczema as well as encourage thicker, shinier hair and new hair growth.
The antiseptic and antimicrobial action of calendula helps speed up healing of wounds, acne and sores. Eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and other skin problems can also be soothed using calendula.
Chamomile is a powerhouse of antioxidants and protects the skin from free-radical damage. This tea can help fade spots, eliminate acne scars and fight breakouts due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
