Essiac Topical Solution - for internal or external use
Rene Caisse used to inject a decoction made from Sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella) at her Essiac Cancer Clinic in the 1930s.
Essiac Topical Solution Herbs provide alternative ways to work with Sheep sorrel. The mix is now 83% Sheep sorrel roots, and 17% Slippery elm, a much higher overall ratio than the 4-herb Essiac tea which includes the aerial parts as well, and has four ingredients. Previously the Seep sorrel portion of the Topical Solution mix contained 20% aerial parts and 63% roots, but we have converted it to all roots, with the Slippery elm portion remaining the same at 17%. (The Slippery elm helps increase the viscosity of the decoction.) There is now more Sheep sorrel root to power this brew but we are not increasing the price because enough companies are doing that when it isn't necessary enough. What people need is a break not higher prices!
Sheep sorrel roots are hard to come by commercially and this is the least expensive way to get therm quantity-wise. Sheep sorrel roots were Rene Caisse's "secret" ingredient in Essiac.
Essiac Topical Solution It is prepared the same way as the Essiac 4-herb decoction. Work with it externally, with an enema or douche, use as a mouthwash, apply to wounds and other external conditions...or even drink it as a tea in place of your regular Essiac. Additionally you can add it to your bath or apply to your face to make your skin soft!

All ingredients are organic or wild-harvested and U.S.-grown. Makes one quart. Its recommended to bottle it into more than one jar so you can leave all but the bottle you are using sealed until needed. Store in the refrigerator once the decoction is made.
