Original Recipe from Nurse Caisse Herbal Tea Caffeine Free

In 1922, Canadian Nurse Rene Caisse received the Ojibway formula from a patient who had claimed that it cured her of breast cancer, 20 years earlier. Giving it the name Essiac (Caisse spelled backwards) she used the herbal remedy many times over the next 50 years and her work with it has been described as "one of the most remarkable stories in all of medicine." This is the exact same recipe that was used a century ago.

Organic Burdock Root, Organic Sheep Sorrel Powdered, Organic Slippery Elm Powdered, Organic Turkish Rhubarb Root Powdered

Burdock root has been used as a good medicine for centuries in various ways, including as a diuretic to aid digestion. The roots of the burdock plant contain a variety of beneficial nutrients such as antioxidants and insulin that are known to help battle conditions like skin disorders, inflammation, digestion, and more.

Sheep sorrel is a perennial, edible herb with a bright and tart flavor that adds a healthy punch of flavor to any dish. Sorrel is known to reduce mucus due to the drying effect it has on the body, improve sinus infections, soothe canker sores and equalize blood pressure.

Slippery elm, also known as Ulmus fulva, is a medium sized tree with spreading branches that form an open crown. They are identified by their “slippery” inner bark and may live to be 200 years old. Slippery elm is commonly used to help improve digestive function as a laxative. It can also help to reduce oxidative stress because it contains compounds called phenolics, allowing slippery elm to act as a natural free radical scavenger and oxidative stress reducer.

Turkish rhubarb root is a perennial plant known for its distinct sour flavor and vivid color. It is most commonly seen mixed with lots of sugar in items like pies or jams. As a high-fiber food, rhubarb is known to ease digestion and relieve constipation and diarrhea. Rhubarb also has antiviral effects, which allow it to help inhibit inflammation.


  • Using a stainless steel or glass pot(not aluminum) bring 1 quart of distilled or spring water to a boil.
  • Add 1 ounce of your dry Essiac blend.
  • Cover and boil gently for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Cover. Steep (no more heat added) for 12 hours.
  • After 12 hours, reheat the tea mix, but do not boil it again.
  • Strain out herbs with a stainless steel mesh strainer or cheesecloth. If some of the herb gets into the tea, that is fine.
  • Pour into clean glass jars and cap tightly.  
  • Store in the refrigerator for 1 week.
  • Essiac can be sweetened with honey or raw sugar if desired. Do not add artificial sweetener to it.

Essiac tea should be taken on an empty stomach. The risk of digestive upset increases if you take it on a full stomach. If taking it on an empty stomach is impossible, take it with a light meal or snack. Bedtime is a great time to take this tea.

For general health, immune strengthening and detoxing 1/2 ounce of Essiac Tea is added to two ounces of warm water and taken once a day.

For serious health conditions, 1 ounce of Essiac tea is added to two ounces of warm water and taken once a day.

Essiac tea should be followed with a glass of water. Plenty of water is a good idea all day long to help the body to flush out toxins.

Essiac Contraindications

As wonderful as Essiac tea is, it is NOT for every person, every health problem, or even every cancer. Each person is an individual with diverse needs. If you have a serious health condition and you are considering using Essiac, please find a qualified health professional to help you monitor your health and help you to evaluate the effect that this natural remedy could have on your particular situation.

Essiac is not recommended for pregnant women. Turkey rhubarb, having a laxative and stimulating effect could cause premature contractions.

Essiac is not recommended for nursing mothers. The safety of it has not been evaluated on nursing mothers. Also, herb combinations that are designed to "detox" the body should not be used by breastfeeding mothers and the toxins can exit the body through breast milk and have a negative effect on the nursing child.

Because of its oxalic acid content, Essiac may not be suitable for people with kidney disease.

If you take over the counter or prescription medications, Essiac may not be appropriate for you. The slippery elm in Essiac can hinder the absorption of medication. Turkey rhubarb, another herb in Essiac can affect diuretic medications.

Because Essiac can initially cause a tumor to swell, Essiac is not generally recommended for people with brain tumors. Even slight increases in brain tumor size can cause serious problems.

If you decide to take Essiac tea, do not exceed the recommended dosages. More is not always better. A body usually takes time to get into a sick or compromised state. It is reasonable to allow the body time to heal in a slow and steady way.

If you notice undesirable side effects, decrease the amount of tea you take each day, or take a break from the tea.

Essiac tea may cause side effects for some people. Because of its purgative effect, it may cause digestive distress, diarrhea or cramping. Because it detoxifies the body, it may cause a detox reaction which can include headache or nausea.

Final Thoughts on the Use of Essiac Tea

If you have a serious health problem, the use of Essiac tea should be part of a holistic approach to the improvement of your health.

Essiac tea is a great start to better health for many people, but the possibility of success is greater if it is part of a lifestyle approach to health.

If you are dealing with serious illness, your body needs quality foods. Avoid processed foods, sugars, artificial sweeteners, MSG and fried foods. Eat a variety of whole foods. Drink plenty of water.

Get some exercise and sunshine each day. Exercise will improve your mood and sweating helps with detox. Sunshine also helps with mood and the vitamin D is needed for health.

Consider making healing bath part of your health routine. These baths can improve sleep and impart some extra healing.

As is the case with taking any supplement while you are pregnant or breastfeeding or taking medication, you should always consult your healthcare professional prior to usage.
