Phytotherapy

Plants are our companions since the very beginning. Ancient recipes survived thousands of years due to their healing properties.

For the MOON detox herbs and roots help us to eliminate toxins and to build up new strength. They balance our organism on many subtle levels. Please check whether you suffer from allergies or other intolerances before using herbal remedies. They are as powerful as any other medication. Sometimes they interfere, so please check especially when you take other medication for cross-reactivity.

I will only list the herbs relevant to the MOON detox. I recommend getting a plant bible relevant for the place you live and to connect yourself with the wisdom of nature.

Please scroll down for the shopping list of herbal tea for the duration of the MOON detox!
