What comes to your mind when you hear the word “cleanse”? Maybe you think of a strict, regimented diet that’s really hard on your body. Or you might associate it with the headaches that usually accompany a harsh diet, and the grumpiness that signals to everyone around you that you’re restricting yourself. Perhaps you imagine day after day of emergency bathroom runs. Whatever comes to mind, odds are, it isn’t pleasant.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Most people who cleanse approach it as if they are fighting their own body. But in reality, your body does an amazing job at detoxing itself. Your liver, lungs, skin and kidneys all work together constantly to eliminate toxins from your body.

Problem is, Canadians are exposed to an alarming amount of toxins—substances that cause negative health effects—on a daily basis. Pollutants, artificial food ingredients, pesticides, and other contaminants can all make their way into your body. The good news is that you can help support your body in its own cleansing process. Think of it like exercise: Routine physical activity is key to good health, and so is supporting your body’s natural cleansing.


Cleansing doesn’t have to be complicated. Choosing healthy foods and exercising regularly can help you detox. So can a simple cup of tea that includes Flor•Essence®, a blend of 8 herbs that naturally flush the body of toxins and waste.

Flor•Essence® offers a different kind of cleanse experience, one that’s gentle and which leaves you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Inspired by a traditional Ojibwa formula, it includes burdock root to stimulate liver function and rhubarb root to detoxify the digestive system, colon, liver and blood. Sheep sorrel is a gentle laxative that cleanses the bowels, while blessed thistle and slippery elm bark support digestion and soothe the digestive track.


Used regularly, Flor•Essence® is a safe and effective full-body cleanse. It’s available as a dry tea blend or as a prepared liquid, which can be used three times daily, preferably half an hour before breakfast, lunch, and again at bed time – just dilute with equal parts warm water. It’s easy, and you can feel good knowing that Flor•Essence® is plant-based, vegan, organic, and free from GMO ingredients.

Even if you eat right, you can still experience the benefits of cleansing. Incorporating Flor•Essence® into your diet can jump-start your body; it’s a small change that can become a healthy habit and have a big impact on your life.
