As we are about to kick off summer, we can’t help but notice all of the ads and marketing focusing on beach bodies and healthy living. Of course, we know that fad diets and crash weight loss are never the healthiest options, but sometimes we can’t help ourselves. We buy in because we are looking for the instant gratification and immediate results. Though I am no nutritionist, no dietician, I am pretty well-versed in healthy eating and healthy living. I won’t be the first to tell you, but I am going to mention this: keep your diets clean, keep your lifestyles active, avoid consuming any crazy chemicals (especially in the name of weight loss), and you’ll be the best you that you can be!
In keeping with the healthy living, healthy eating lifestyle, we are super excited to announce one of our new favorite products. This month’s Out of the Woods Apothecary Box features our Cleavers Tincture. Used as a natural diuretic, this tincture can help flush your system, boost your kidney function, and smooth out any urinary issues you may be experiencing. We’ve taken some freshly foraged cleavers, infused them in vodka for about six weeks, and resulted with a lymphatic tonic that helps to detoxify the body.
Cleavers has been used for centuries as an alternate option in the world of medicine. It can be used both internally and externally and assists with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, can help with ulcer concerns, and has even been used in cancer patients to help detoxify their bodies. Cleavers are also super rich in many vitamins and minerals, and are overall, an awesome addition to your daily diets. Cleavers can grow just about anywhere, so they are readily available. But, since they’re sticky, just be careful when foraging to make sure you didn’t grab inadvertently grab anything other than what you’ve intended. Whether you’re ready to flush your systems, improve your skin conditions, or are just thinking of your overall health, trying our Cleavers Tincture just might be what you need.
