The best time of year to undergo a natural cleanse is at the change of the seasons as the natural increase of heat in Spring breaks down built up congestion from the Winter months. Undertaking a cleanse after the festive season also makes sense because many of us have had a week or two of indulgence, eating and drinking things we might not usually have.

Pukka teas are great and they are probably the best budget teas you will find in the supermarket, but it’s the brands like TeaPigs that we respect more these days because they are doing something different.
