Some encounters leave a lasting impression. I got such an impression when I met recently with the wonderful Tereza Scharf.
A native Brazilian, Tereza has created Paraiso Verde, a unique place where one can follow a detox surrounded by the most beautiful nature.
The place is nestled in 60 hectares of Atlantic rainforest and along the most beautiful beaches of Bahia.

Paraiso Verde is a piece of rainforest located between the river and the ocean, right bellow the equator.

BWB: You have incredible knowledge in nutrition, aromatherapy and ayurvedic.
Can you please share with us how you use them during these detoxes?

When start a detox, I use hot water with lemon, chlorella oil pulling with tea tree oil, triphalla, several ayurvedic body work, like shirodarah, abyanga and steam among other treatments.

As for food,  I prepare lots of green juices, salads, mung beans, cilantro and ghee.
We also use lots of local teas that help on speeding up the  detox process.

To ease any kind of discomfort, we use several hydrosol sprays like rose, geranium and a mix of chamomile, geranium and marjoram that are sprayed on your bed to help you relax even deeper. We also give lots of loving and care.

I avoid most of regular cleaning supplies. I use lots of vinegar ( to clean wood, kitchen counter), alcohol, essential oils of lemon, tea tree, eucalyptus, grapefruit and lavender with a hint of ylang ylang.
