Essiac made from certified organic/wildcrafted, U.S.A. domestically grown herbs. Ojibwa Tea of Life™ is specifically blended fresh for each individual order.
Quality matters! Our herbs are purchased every other week to provide maximum freshness. Ojibwa Tea of Life™ is prepared with only a blend of four herbs. The original essiac formula that Rene Caisse developed as her final tea contains:
- 35% Sheep Sorrel (leaf, stem, root and seed)
- 54% Burdock Root (and seed)
- 9% Slippery Elm inner bark
- 2% Turkey Rhubarb root
Some suppliers use an eight-herb blend. However, this remedy is best used as the original 4-herb formula. The benefits of the four-herb formula are greater than single ingredients used in isolation. Many have found this formula to nourish the body for more positive results.
The tea is prepared with only a proprietary blend of four herbs. Many other commercial companies add additional herbs, detracting from the origin of this remedy. Essiac is best used as the original Ojibwa formula with no other additions. It’s true that Rene Caisse herself experimented with adding additional herbs; however, she always returned to this basic four-herb formula.
