Yesterday we talked about detoxing the liver. It is important to know that often when one begins a detox, there can be things that go along with it. As your body begins to detox, it is pulling toxins and other unwanted things from your organs. This is the very reason, one starts a detox in the first place. But the more being pulled, the harder it can be for the body to flush and get them out of the system entirely. And having an abundant amount of toxins suddenly in our blood stream or other organs of our body, creates flu-like symptoms. This can include headache, nausea, joint stiffness, dizziness, sluggishness, sore throat, congestion, constipation, etc.
There are 7 pathways in our body that purge and eliminate toxins. These pathways are very good at working together to eliminate and process toxins. However, if one ore more becomes overloaded (like during a detox) it will put a strain on the others.
Below I will talk about 5 essential oils that can be used to support the body during this time and help everything flush out more effectively.
is a great oil for colon support. It will stimulates digestion by balancing secretion of gastric juices, bile and other digestive acids. This helps maintain both a healthy colon and digestive tract. It helps with common digestive issues like occasional constipation, acid reflux and more.

Also, clove oil is made up of 95 percent eugenol which has been shown to help treat Candida albicans, yeast infections and other fungal overgrowths.
Place two drops, mixed with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut oil, in a capsule and take once a day.
Take either a hot detox bath or do a hot detox foot soak using peppermint and Epsom salts. Soak for 30 minutes to draw toxins out via the skin. Not only will the combination stimulate the skin to pull out the toxins, but the peppermint will leave you feeling refreshed and energized.
