Variations in Essiac Herb Color and Flavor

farm“Why do some essiac herbs vary in color and flavor from batch to batch?”

We get this question a fair amount, and it’s usually accompanied by customers worrying about the quality of their tea. Generally it’s along the lines of:

  • Is there something wrong with my batch?
  • Is this order less efficacious than the last order I got?
  • Have the herbs gone rotten or rancid somehow?
  • Are the herbs safe?
  • Are there different herbs in this order?

First of all, allow us to assure you that the herbs are safe, and our formula remains the same as it’s always been. We follow the original 4-herb formula as described by nurse Rene Caisse. (More details here and here!)

So what’s going on? Why do some batches of the essiac herbs have different colors and/or flavors? Read More »

Different Forms of Essiac Tea

otl-all-300If you look through our online store, you’ll see that we offer our essiac in a variety of forms. We have:

  • Loose leaf herbs
  • Pre-brewed tea in bottles
  • Essiac extract/tonic

Which form is right for you?

First of all, all three of these forms are the same product. We use the original, 4-herb essiac formula that nurse Rene Caisse used. While it’s true that she experimented with an 8-herb formula, she always came back to these same four original herbs as being the most efficacious.

These herbs are:

  1. Sheep sorrel
  2. Burdock root
  3. Slippery Elm bark
  4. Turkey (or Indian) Rhubarb

All three forms of our tea include these constituents, and so all three are equally effective. Whichever form you choose, you’ll get the same results.

Now that that’s out of the way, which one is the right choice for you? Let’s look at the details for each. Read More »
