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
Slippery Elm Bark, (Ulmus fulva), organic
Rhubarb Root, (Rheum palmatum), organic
Sheep Sorrel, (Rumex acetosella), organic
This liquid extract is a concentrated version of our Mary's Tea and as such requires small doses to be equivalent to a dose of the tea. Portable and needing no refrigeration, it can be dropped on the tongue or sipped in a small amount of water or a cup of your favorite tea.
