Essiac Tea

The origins of Essiac tea are shrouded in mystery. It was popularized in the 1920s by a Canadian nurse named Rene Caisse who apparently got the recipe from a patient who herself received it from an Ontario Ojibwa medicine man. It was publicized as the ‘miracle tea’ that could cure cancer.

This is why the tea is also called Essiac, which is Caisse spelled backward.

It is said that she found out about the blend for a patient who had received it from an Ojibwa medicine man. Due to her extensive work with the blend that continued until the 1970s, the blend gained immense popularity.

According to some companies who sell the tea and other supporters, the benefits of Essiac tea include cancer treatment and prevention, HIV and AIDS treatment, immune system support, and diabetes therapy. Consumers who are not battling illness might use the tea as a detoxifying elixir or as a general health tonic.

Our unique Herbology Essiac Tea Blend consists of Red clover, sheep sorrel, Rhubarb root, Slippery Elm, kelp, cancer bush, holy thistle, Siberian Ginseng, Ginko leaves, elderberries, blueberries, cranberries, rooibos, and hibiscus.

The ratios and recipe to make this special blend is a secret.
