From the outside in, it’s time for an autumn detox
As the warmer weather fades and we begin nestling into our autumnal wardrobes, it’s worth sparing a thought for all the naughty treats consumed over the last few months.
While its often guilt free smoothies and spa breaks during the summer, there may have also been plenty of weddings with an abundance of cake and wine…
So, looking back at all the treats of the summer, it’s probably about time for a detox. We’re not talking juice diets and daily shots of wheatgrass however; we’re ready for a sophisticated detox that really works.
Here at the Feversham Arms Hotel, we like to keep things simple and start from the outside, in.

Detox Dandelion Tea
Our fantastic Head Chef, Norman Mackenzie, recommends drinking a Detox Dandelion Tea to fully rejuvenate on the inside. According to classical homeopathic practitioner, Sonya McLeod, dandelions are an excellent source of vitamin A, potassium, iron and calcium. According to McLeod, dandelion tea is a diuretic, which means it will eliminate bodily toxins through your liver and kidneys.
Norman is a keen forager and gardener, he recommends clearing your garden of dandelions early autumn – it’s the perfect time of year for it. Simply dig up the root, clean it off, chop it and then store in an airtight jar until next year. Alternatively, you can buy the dried root from your nearest health food store.
The root offers stronger detox capabilities, but try this quick and simple method as an easy alternative:
Brew six tbsp. of 1-year-old dried dandelion root and 12 tbsp. of fresh dandelion leaves in four cups of purified, boiling water.
Simply add two tbsp. of crushed dandelion leaves to a cup of boiling water and allow it to brew for 10 minutes.
Sit back, enjoy and detox…
