Essiac Herb Quality

Please be assured that the herbs we use in our essiac tea are based on two things. Choosing the highest quality organic herbs and purchasing at the lowest price possible. The herbs that our supplier currently uses are domestic herbs grown in the U.S. We realize that one of the most important elements to any top quality product is the quality of its ingredients. There is little point in making or taking a product if the ingredients are inferior.

The eight essiac herbs (blessed thistle, burdock root, kelp, sheep sorrel, slippery elm bark, red clover, turkish rhubarb root and watercress) primarily come from Starwest Botanicals, Inc. in California. Click here for information on Quality Control of these herbs.

Moisture Content and Freshness

The moisture content of our herbs are: 12-15% moisture content for the blessed thistle, sheep sorrel, and kelp, and less than 10% for the burdock root, red clover, slippery elm bark, watercress, and turkish rhubarb root.

We use 20% Root of the Sheep Sorrel in our formula; a key ingredient for the maximum effectiveness.

Our herbs are extremely fresh because we continually sell out of them. There is no time for them to get stale. We receive shipments of the freshest herbs every few weeks and sell them quickly.

Our customers continually tell us how fresh our herbs look, smell, and taste. Our time is dedicated to only one product; essiac. Unlike stores where a product may sit for weeks on a shelf, we are constantly moving our product and our customers benefit from this.

Why We Only Carry Powdered Herbs

Powdered herbs are made by grinding the ENTIRE herb which makes a stronger brew. Powdered herbs have a greater surface area therefore the extracts penetrate more thoroughly into the tea. Since no one is sure exactly which part of the herb is the most beneficial, it is important to ingest all of the herb. The powdered form is the ONLY form which allows you to drink the entire herb.

Eight Herb Formula vs. Four Herb Formula

Not only is the eight herb formula the first essiac to be used by Rene Caisse, the four herb formula was found to be inferior.


click for brief history of essiac The four herb formula was designed to have one herb injected and it just simply does not work as well as the original eight herb essiac.

Our eight herb tea was specifically designed to be most effective in building our immune system and eliminating toxins from the body when taken orally as a tea. The high quality of our herbs enhances the formula.

There is no question that customers who have used and continue to use this eight herb formula have benefited greatly because of this. We sell only the eight herb formula because we know it’s the BEST.
