3. Ginger has many properties that make it an ideal detox tea ingredient, including aiding the digestive tract, acting as an anti-inflammatory and contributing to healthy skin.

5. Not feeling like sipping on a hot beverage? For a chilled option, Hello Natural's Detox Green Tea and Ginger ice cubes can be added to water to get all the two ingredients' great detoxifying benefits.

6. Turmeric aids the liver in detoxification and, like ginger, is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Primally Inspired's Turmeric Tea recipe doesn't just help your body detoxify-it also boosts immunity and helps sooth cold and cough symptoms (a must for the upcoming cold and flu season).

7. Dandelions, the bane of many a homeowner's existence, can act as a base for a sweet and satisfying detox tea, as found with It's a Love/Love Thing's "Butterscotch" Tea recipe. As a bonus, this tea can act as a substitute for sugary, milky coffee drinks, while aiding your liver, kidneys and gallbladder.
