Sheep Sorrel and Essiac: What You Need to Know

Rene Caisse, the Canadian nurse credited with the initial widespread use of this tea, stated that the most important herb in the essiac formula was the sheep sorrel.


Furthermore, she made it clear that the sheep sorrel cannot be just the leaves. The sheep sorrel must contain the root, and at the right proporition, that is 20% root of the entire sheep sorrel plant. If the essiac doesn't contain the sheep sorrel with the root, the tea won't be nearly as effective.



The problem is, many herb farms will not sell sheep sorrel with the root included. We were able to obtain sheep sorrel with the root by contracting with a private grower so that we can offer you the best essiac available. 


  • Hi David,

    We do not recommend that you make essiac tea yourself. The correct formula is not public information, and the herbs are not all going to be able to be found in the same place anyway.

  • I have been diagnosed with LGL Leukemia (Large Granular Lymphocyte Leukemia). My white cells are clonal as with cancer and it’s in my blood, hence Leukemia. I’m using the tea figuring it can’t hurt. Anyone have any information on the tea and LGLL or other kinds of leukemia? Thanks!
