The skin is one of the four main elimination/detoxification channels and it is capable of eliminating about 20% of the body’s waste but if the body tries to eliminate more than that via the skin then skin problems can manifest and with it congestion, heat, inflammation and toxins will accumulate. Cleavers (Galium aparine) is abundant and easy to harvest and is one of the best herbs for relieving obstructions in the bladder and kidneys which ensures quick release of any toxins. And it’s also a key herb to activate the lymphatic system, which is sometimes in need of encouragement to help flush out toxins accumulated over winter!
1. One small handful of fresh cleavers
2. Chop and pour over boiling water
3. Leave to infuse for 10 minutes
