UPDATE AUGUST 2023: Our supplier, Strictly Medicinal Seeds in Oregon, has Slippery elm seeds again! There really aren't many sources for Slippery elm seed, so we are super excited to offer all four Essiac herb seeds again, for the first time since 2021!
There is no better, fresher, more potent and inexpensive Essiac in the world than that which you have grown and harvested yourself. You can include the whole Sheep sorrel plant in your formula, and have more potent Essiac than you could buy anywhere. Commercially, there is no Essiac on the market with a Sheep sorrel root content being comprised of more than 65% roots (which is Blue Moon Herbs!). However, you can boost the root content in your own or any other Essiac by adding extra Sheep sorrel roots. They will be ready to harvest in earnest in the second fall, but will produce roots in the first year. Easy to grow!
The seed kit contains Burdock, Sheep sorrel, Slippery Elm and Turkey rhubarb seeds, as well as a handy growing guide.
