Essiac preparations instructions
1.5 pounds of burdock root (arctium lappa)
1 pound sheep sorrel, (rumex acetossela) organic powdered or wild crafted
4 oz of slippery elm bark (ruberus fulva)
1 oz turkish ru barb root (rheum palmatum) and 8 oz of cats claw
Put it all together and mix it up dry
Buy all of this in powder form from your local herb retailer
In a separate container:
Boil 1 gallon of distilled, not purified, not spring, but distilled water, in a non reactive pot – stainless steal or enamel/canning pot bring the water to a boil
Take the distilled gallon of water off the heat, stir in a ½ cup of the powder into the water. (do not stir in the powder while still boiling the water, it will boil over)
Put the distilled gallon of water with the now added ½ cup of powder herb and water back onto the burner and simmer for 20 minutes turn the heat off and cover the pot and let it sit for 8 hours (overnight)
The liquid is now the Essiac.
Then strain off the gunk/herbs that are at the bottom.
You are going to throw away the sludge of herbs after you strain off the liquid.
Put the liquid Essiac in glass bottles and store in the fridge.
(If you make larger batches than above - storing in a dark glass bottle in the fridge is necessary.)
Taking the Liquid Essiac:
Pour out 2 oz, or 1/4 cup or 50 mils of the Essiac
Add 2 oz of boiling water to the Essiac.
Sip the now 4 oz of liquid as you give thanks to the great spirit for being healed. Do this 4 times a day
Half hour before meals, mid morning, mid afternoon and just before bed
Drink the Essiac/boiled water tea on an empty stomach.
