Mary's Tea is our version of the Essiac Herbs, four herbs that have long been used to assist us when in ill health, particularly when there is cancer. Supportive of us as mildly detoxifying and helping to increase appetite, energy, and mood, Mary's Tea has been a staunch companion to those trying to heal. It consists of:
Burdock Root, (Arctium lappa), organic
Sheep Sorrel, (Rumex acetosella), organic
Slippery Elm Bark (inner), (Ulmus fulva), organic
Rhubarb Root, (Rheum palmatum), organic
Making the tea yourself is the most economical way to use this formula. A one-cup package of these herbs may be used to make a cup of tea at a time or a total of 2 gallons of tea. Directions for both versions are included.
Your energy goes into the tea as you make it. We believe that the more we take part in our own healing, the better results we can obtain.
