Our motto: “living life to the full whilst being as pure as possible” couldn’t ring truer at this time of year. Some of us are halfway through dry January, some just starting to detox and some back to intermittent fasting 3 days a week that we love so much.
Stay on track and maximise results with our top tips and detox helpers we can’t live without – enjoy & feel great …. we certainly do!
1 - Solaris Organic Lemon Detox Tea
This refreshing, detoxing tea includes Lemongrass, Lemon Verbena, Fennel, Horsetail, Birch Leaf, Nettle & Juniper.
It is a zesty, uplifting infusion which is caffeine free and perfect for any time of the day on your detox. We enjoy it as a hot infusion or, alternatively, chilled with fresh lemon juice and raw honey as a perfect thirst and sweet fix quencher. As a bonus the 100% biodegradable, silken tea bag can be infused twice.
2 – Charcoal
Charcoal products are increasingly available, be it in natural whitening toothpaste (to take away inflammation and detox from all those chemicals in conventional toothpaste), charcoal oil pulling or as a powder/tablet form to beat the bloat. We use our activated charcoal powder with fresh ginger as a morning cleanse shot, this amazing powder has so much detox potential, it should not be taken alongside prescription medications, as it can make them less effective.
3 - Body detox
Your skin can be revitalised by removing impurities such as toxins, pollutants, and dead skin cells. By body brushing and exfoliating with pure body scrubs/bath soaks and using natural deodorants you will help the body eliminate toxins and improve circulation. You will LOVE the difference and feel amazing! We tested every natural deodorant on the market we could get our hands on and this one containing silver minerals got top marks from us.
From body brushing to Himalayan salt that removes toxins and cellulite with its high mineral content to essential oils that boost energy by stimulating the lymphatic system our top detox body products have been carefully selected for giving optimum results - we love them all!

5 - Home detox
A healthy home is key to how you look and feel!
According to research the average home today contains over 62 toxic chemicals.
Room sprays, air fresheners and scented candles are increasingly in the press as being toxic and a hazard to our health with links to breathing problems, ADHD among many other serious health claims.
Detox your home for you and your whole family whilst getting the benefits of this amazing 100% natural and synthetic free range. It will lift your mood and works on so many levels.
We were delighted when we discovered Wildheart Organics range of sophisticated pure room sprays, candles and diffusers, and know you will be too.
6 – KIKI Health’s Organic Aloe Ferox
This incredible and surprisingly palatable Juice is pure, unfiltered, natural, and native to Africa. Growing wild in its natural habitat, Aloe Ferox is known for its natural colon cleansing benefits. It is particularly high in calcium which contributes to the normal function of digestive enzymes and amino acids which assist in breaking down food.
Aloe Ferox Juice is un-concentrated and undiluted, therefore all of the plant’s vital nutrients are retained in their natural form.
Unlike Aloe Vera, Aloe Ferox does not need to be filtered, therefore it has a higher nutrient concentration as nothing is lost during the filtration process. The leaves of the Aloe Vera plant are soft so ‘aloin’ permeates into the white pulp, this is why many manufacturers often filter or chemically neutralise the product to remove the ‘aloin’ content. Aloin can cause unwanted side effects such as electrolyte imbalance, diarrhoea, and abdominal pain. The leaves of the Aloe Ferox plant are physically much stronger so do not allow any aloin to enter.
We take 2 tablespoons of Aloe Ferox pure or blended with fruit juice, before meals to aid and support our detox.
7 - Supergreens
Products containing supergreens are proven to support the body's detoxification. We use these amazing plant-based ingredients to help our body heal and repair from inflammation caused by sugar, dairy, alcohol, and stress. It can also be used as a dietary supplement designed to help us reach our daily recommended vegetable intake, or boost it!
We believe these powders help detoxification and alkalise the body. Research claims that green powders can support your body’s immunity, energy levels, detoxification and so much more. Use it in smoothies, as a shot ideally at breakfast.
8 - Bloom Ultra Cleanse Matcha
This tea combines organic Japanese Matcha with yerba mate and milk thistle for a phenomenal detoxing green tea powder that’s naturally high in fibre, low in sugars and salt and fat-free.
Matcha helps to safely cleanse and purge the body of harmful toxins. It is richer in chlorophyll than other green teas, making it a fantastic daily detox. This is more than a comfort drink! It's also a natural source of powerful antioxidants (vitamins and minerals) your body needs to boost immunity and protect tissues against the damage caused by oxygen free radicals and lipid peroxidation (commonly associated with aging). Antioxidants are also reputed to fight disease. This antioxidant-rich Tea Treatment Plan is a delicious way to regularly boost your immune system and stay hydrated, helping you manage your busy lifestyle.
9 - Intermittent fasting
Team Seaweed are hooked on Ancient + Brave’s amazing products.
Intermittent fasting can be a minefield and the Brave Method makes it a clear, easy and healthy choice.
Research shows that regular intermittent fasts have endless mental and physical benefits, aside from weight loss - from boosting metabolism, regulating blood pressure, reducing inflammation to upping your brain’s cognitive functions.
The range also features MCT oil and gut friendly collagen - with its amino acids that build the tissue that lines the colon and GI tract, supplementing with collagen can help treat gastrointestinal symptoms and disorders, including leaky gut syndrome and IBS.
There are a number of double-blind, placebo-controlled studies investigating the anti-ageing properties of collagen which have found that collagen hydrolysate can significantly improve skin elasticity, skin moisture, transepidermal water loss and strengthen both the hair follicles and nails not to mention what it can do for the microbiome.
10 - A truly natural detox for your hair & scalp
Less Is More is an incredible range of pure styling and hair products that contain plant extracts, including mineral rich clays & natural salts resulting in protection and strengthening of hair. The styling range has anti-oxidative protection from free radicals, sunscreen and anti-aging properties. It gives protection against heat damage, prevents the hair from drying out and splitting. Less is More bristle brush is an incredible experience and the basis for a healthy scalp and beautiful hair. To gently detox & vitalize the scalp, we recommend daily brushing in the morning. A hair detox programme can take anything between 1 week and a month to balance and detox from all the harsh silicones and toxic chemicals, resulting in glossy locks and healthy scalp – you will never look back.
