The Purifier Tea

2 oz (56g)
Our very first kidney support formula, The Purifier is a revolutionary addition to our apothecary and something we find is often overlooked in both the allopathic and holistic realm. Although our kidneys play such a crucial role in the elimination of waste products and environmental pollutants, we tend to focus more on liver support, as the markers of optimal liver health are more readily measured. However, this leaves mineral-rich, kidney-loving herbs that protect and strengthen us over time out of the picture, even though these nutritive plants offer such a wide range of benefits. This aromatic, slightly bitter, and full bodied tea is blended with herbs that work in harmony to help us eliminate excess, without causing depletion. Cleavers, Horsetail, Goldenrod, Parsley, Dandelion Leaf, Ginkgo and Rosehip each have a unique and complementary ability to support the kidneys, the lymphatic system, and our ability to maintain fluid balance as we let go of what we no longer need. Brew yourself a cup when you feel like you’re having trouble letting go — after a long flight, before an important event, or as part of self care (we love sipping this before Gua Sha when you need to “de-puff!”)*

The super herbs in our blend

Horsetail

Equisetum arvense

Horsetail is an herb that quite literally helps us to embody its namesake -- supporting long and healthy luscious hair, strong nails, and collagen production within the skin. Known as a beautifying herb, this plant medicine also deeply assists the kidneys, promoting fluid balance.*

The herbs within this blend are a mix of calming and relaxing "nervines" that soothe and unwind physical tension, as well as "Shen" tonics that reconnect us to our spirit.* In Chinese Medicine, the heart houses our Shen, which can be translated as our consciousness or soul. A healthy and grounded Shen governs our ability to lead from our heart’s true calling and purpose – to extend beyond the Self and form loving relationships with those around us.

About the

Formula

Kidney support for the modern world

When it comes to kidney health, we often don’t implement supportive measures or diet changes until things have progressed to a point of concern — but we suggest prevention and ongoing support with help from mineral rich, strengthening, kidney supporting herbs that assist overall kidney health slowly and gently over time. 

There’s so much we can do to aid and protect kidney physiology and function thanks to plants that contain antioxidants with an affinity for kidney cells. The Purifier contains a blend of herbs that help our kidneys do the job they’re meant to do despite a wide range of environmental stressors in today’s world.*

Horsetail: a mineral-rich powerhouse

Horsetail is an herb that quite literally helps us to embody its namesake -- supporting long and healthy luscious hair, strong nails, and collagen production within the skin. Known as a beautifying herb, this plant medicine also deeply supports the kidneys, promoting healthy fluid balance and normal kidney function.


Horsetail is noted for its ability to "pull whatever gold might be in the soil." This means it ends up extremely rich in hydrating, nourishing minerals including silica, phosphorous, iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, and potassium. While all of horsetail's minerals are valuable, the high silica content that has earned solidified its value in both traditional and modern herbal remedies. 


In the lens of holistic beauty, silica promotes our own collagen production and mineral absorption, helping the hair, skin, and nails get the nutrients they need to be strong, smooth, and shiny. As horsetail supports the kidneys, it's also a lovely 'de-puffing' herb that can be combined with bodywork and facial massage such as Gua Sha. Silica also helps support healthy connective tissue, playing a part in joint and cartilage protection as well as healthy bone maintenance.


Interestingly enough, one of the major assaults we face in terms of kidney health today is heavy metal exposure, due to the ubiquitous nature of industry byproducts such as aluminum. Although horsetail is renowned as a "kidney herb," part of the reason it rose to fame is because its silica content helps to maintain the normal and healthy elimination of heavy metals like aluminum, allowing the kidneys to maintain optimal function without this added stressor.*

When to Use

The Purifier is designed to be used on a consistent basis in rotation with your favorite nourishing teas, in order to aid a healthy inflammatory response within the kidneys and bladder and provide steady support to keep your renal system happy and functionally optimally. We like to utilize The Purifier after airplane travel, to support healthy fluid balance when needed, to support healthy urinary frequency, and after tough workouts in order to aid the kidneys in the normal elimination of waste products such as lactic acid.*

How to Use

For a quick brew, add 1 heaping teaspoon to a french press or mason jar and cover with hot, just-boiled water. Let the herbs steep for 15 minutes, strain, and enjoy. For a stronger flavor, add 1 heaping teaspoon of tea to one cup of boiling water on the stove. Cover, lower heat, and gently simmer for 15 minutes. Strain and enjoy as is or sweeten with honey. You may rebrew the same serving 2-3 times.

The story
behind the formula

As an herbalist, I’ve always found there to be a gap in the way we care for and nourish kidney health — not fully understanding that the food I was eating (especially high glycemic foods that spike blood glucose!) could impact my long term kidney health until well into my 20s. I believe that if there was more connected education around how our daily decisions beyond just staying hydrated could eventually affect our kidneys, we’d be able to better prevent some of the more severe imbalances we often feel blindsided by as we age.

This tea formula is part of my plan to help others better support kidney health from a preventative, nutritive approach; treating the body to the mineral rich herbs that naturally assist our kidneys in dealing with various environmental and life stressors. It’s part of my personal rotation and something that has helped me maintain healthier fluid balance over the past few years, especially after traveling or during times of occasional stress.*
