i have recently developed with a love affair with yogi detox tea. upon going to their site today to write this post i realized that they have a SKIN detox. as a constant battler of acne i will try anything to get clear skin.
anyway i am a very plain jane when it comes to thinks that i put in my mouth. green tea with agave nectar or honey, black tea with agave nectar or honey, coffee with caramel creamer. recently i have begun branching out with my tea selection and last week when i was feeling ill i picked up the yogi detox tea. i really like the taste of it, although this could be because i have convinced myself it is going to change my life. truthfully though the taste is great and i don’t even have to add honey or agave to it!
the tea is a combination of the following herbs:
Indian Sarsaparilla Root
Long Pepper Berry
Chinese Amur Cork Tree Bark
Japanese Honeysuckle Flower
Chinese Goldenthread Root
Juniper Berry Extract
and apparently Skullcap can make some people feel very sleepy. i have only had the tea at night, i still go to a caffeinated green tea during the day.
as for the detox benefits, i do not know if i am having any other then an acne outbreak. but then again i am very hesitant about attributing that to the tea. some people on the website said it helped their bowls and made them feel less bloated. i cannot say that has been the case with me. but then again i have serious issues in that area.
i also really like that each tea bag has a little quote on the tag. today mine read: ‘for every loss there’s an equal gain, for every gain there’s and equal loss’
this really got me thinking. is this true? i recently had a huge loss with mr. match moving away what have i gained from this? i am still thinking about what i have gained but maybe it is one of those things i will see looking back. hindsight is always 20-20. maybe my gain is right around the corner.
i feel like this is a principle i should be applying to my everyday life. i was stopped at a stoplight when i first read this and i began to go back through a lot of the things i have been through over the past year mentally checking off the losses and gains i have had. for some reason it seems as there have been a lot more losses than gains but maybe this foreshadowing the future. maybe a really awesome year is coming, one that will help me to forget all the losses of the past years and move on.
i guess we will see.
