The Positive Effects of Essiac Tea
by Clive Jenkins
So What Can Do Get From Essiac Tea?

Essiac tea is said to be beneficial in a variety of ways and is even claimed to help with
the treatment of cancer. I understand there is actually research being carried to try
and substantiate these claims. A nurse from Canada named Rene Caisse discovered
Essiac tea and named the tea after her own surname. If you read it backwards you
will find that it spells 'Essiac'.

How Do I Make The Tea?

The process for making and preparing the tea is not so difficult and only requires that
you follow some simple instructions. It doesn't take long to put together and the
ingredients used are minimal. Commonly, Essiac tea is used from time to time for not
just the claims about it being able to treat cancer but for general wellbeing and also to
help heal additional ailments.

The method of preparing the tea is firstly finding a couple of steel pots which will need
to be stainless steel and should measure four gallons and three gallons with a lid. You
will need a spatula, a funnel, a fine-mesh double strainer which should all be stainless
steel; a minimum of twelve, sixteen ounce glass bottles which can be sealed with air
tight caps and additionally you will need to have two gallons of distilled water that is
free from sodium.


Take four ounces of powdered slippery elm bark, one ounce of powdered turkey
rhubarb, six and a half cups of finely cut burdock root and also sixteen ounces of
powdered wild sheep sorrel. Now you need to fully mix up these ingredients and then
take the distilled water that is sodium free, put it in the four gallon pot with the lid
added and bring to the boil.

Now, take 1 cup of the Essiac mix and stir this in to your pot, remember to put the lid
back onto your pot after you've done this and carry on boiling the pot for
approximately another ten minutes. You then turn off your hob and take a scraping
instrument to scrape the sides of the pot. Give the formula a good stir, replace the lid
back on to the pot and leave it that way for half a day or so. Then switch your hob
back on and fully heat for twenty minutes.

The preparation is almost finished and all that needs doing is to turn your hob off and
strain the mixture into the other three gallon pot. You will need to give the five gallon
pot a good clean now as you will be yet again running the mixture through the strainer
and back into the larger pot. After this you can now use your funnel to empty the hot
mix into your bottles. Do this right away and remember to secure the caps tightly.
Finally Leave the bottles to drop in temperature, ensure the caps are still tight and
then refrigerate your newly created Essiac Tea.


You should always consult your Doctor or other qualified health professional before
embarking on any homemade tea venture. Pregnant women in particular should be
cautious of such activities.

How Do We Describe Essiac?

The basis of Essiac is a collection
of herbs which are integrated
together to make the drink that
we all commonly know as tea.
Traditionally, this would consist
of the root from Indian rhubarb,
burdock root, elm inner bark
(slippery) and also sheep sorrel.
Further to this, later recipes also
included the addition of red
clover, blessed thistle and even
watercress; the end product
being Flor Essence.
