Stress Bump Teas

$12.00

The skin can function as an organ of elimination. Your body has four pathways for removal of the daily toxins that it creates (or may be exposed to): bowel movements, urine, breath, or the skin. If elimination from the first three are impaired, this debris manifests as lumps and bumps under your skin!

Our stress bumps teas are designed to improve lymphatic flow in addition to encouraging the body to dump metabolic debris from specific body functions into the urinary system in order for it to be gently removed.

How to Make Your Stress Bump Teas:
• Scoop loose tea into heat safe vessel. (1Tbsp per cup or ¼ cup per quart)
• Pour boiling water over herbs--let steep for up to 8 hours
• Strain into cup (any time after 15 minutes) for immediate use. Can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
• Enjoy cold, heated on the stovetop, or diluted with hot water.

For chronic issues, a good starting plan may be:
2 cups per day for 3 weeks
Take a 2 week break
2 cups a day for 2 weeks
Take a 2 week break
After that, 2 cups a day for 1 week out of every month
