The original recipe for this powerful herbal blend was handed down through word of mouth by Northern Canadian Ojibway Indians over the course of hundreds of years. It eventually reached the ear of Canadian Nurse Rene Caisse who became famous for her use of it on patients. She called the blend Essiac, or Caisse spelled backwards. Complimentary attributes were carefully added by Nurse Caisse, in collaboration with Dr. Charles Brusch, to make Essiac Tea a more potent and well-rounded blend. Their extensive tests found this formulation to be the most effective. As trusted friends of Nurse Caisse, we feel blessed to share this with you.
