Essiac (es-ee-ack) is an herbal tea remedy attributed to Rene Caisse (reen-case) of Canada.
  Canadian Nurse Rene M. Caisse claimed the source of her recipe was an old Indian medicine man. Rene treated cancer patients with her Essiac remedy for 50 years. Her Rene M. Caisse Cancer Clinic functioned from 1935 until 1941.

Rene Caisse named her herbal remedy "Essiac" after backward spelling of her last name.

To make 1 cup of mix to brew with 2 gallons of distilled water:
Burdock root (cut)  =   1/2 cup
Sheep Sorrel (powdered)  =   3/8 cup
Slippery Elm bark (powdered)  =   2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons
Turkey rhubarb (powdered)  =   1 teaspoon

Approximate number of bottles of tea made, depending on water loss

1 cup herb mix + 2 gallons of water = about 224 liquid ounces of tea
will fill fourteen 16-ounce pint bottles, or seven 32-ounce quart bottles.

1/2 cup herb mix + 1 gallon of water = about 112 liquid ounces of tea
will fill seven 16-ounce bottles, or three and a half 32-ounce quart bottles.

1/4 cup herb mix + 1/2 gallon of water = about 56 liquid ounces of tea
will fill three and a half 16-ounce bottles, or almost two 32-ounce quart bottles.

Supplies Needed  Do not use anything made of aluminum.

Stainless steel kettle with lid (or glass, UK unchipped enamel, CND granite pot)
Stainless steel sieve
Large stainless steel or wood stirring utensil
Stainless steel funnel or 2-cup glass measuring cup
Glass bottles can be amber, colored or clear glass

Sizes of kettle and how many bottles depend on amount of tea prepared.
3 gallon kettle and 14 bottles are ideal for 1 cup herb mix + 2 gallons of water.

Bottles and lids can be sterilized by one of these methods:

1)  Boil for 10 minutes with a little food grade peroxide or Clorox.
2)  Boil bottle caps, put bottles in 250 degree oven for 10 minutes.
3)  Soak for 5 minutes in 1 ounce 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide plus 11 oz. distilled water.
4)  Soak for 5 minutes in 1/2 teaspoon Clorox plus 1 gallon distilled water.
5)  16 oz. size bottles can be sterilized in a microwave oven carefully.

The water you use for making essic tea should be as pure as possible. Don't use tap water. Most people use distilled water. Nice but not vital, you can "re-energize and re-oxygenate" distilled water by shaking it well or setting it in the sun for a few hours.

Preparation is pretty much the same in essiac books by Snow/Klein and Cynthia Olsen:

Mix dry ingredients thoroughly.
Measure out desired amount of dry ingredients.
Pour proportionate amount of water into pot.
Bring water to a rolling boil with the lid on.
Stir dry ingredients into boiling water.
Replace lid and continue boiling at reduced heat for 10 minutes.
Turn off stove. Scrape down sides of pot and stir mixture thoroughly.
Replace lid, let pot sit and cool undisturbed for 10-12 hours (overnight).

Reheat to steaming hot, but do not let it boil.
Turn off heat and allow herbs to settle for a few minutes.
Pour hot liquid through sieve to catch sediment.
Use funnel to fill sterilized bottles, put lids on.
Allow bottles to cool, then tighten lids.
Store in dark cool place, always refrigerate an opened bottle.
Essiac contains no preservatives, discard if mold develops. "When in doubt, throw it out".

Unopened bottles can be stored in a cool, dark place, or keep all the bottles in the refrigerater. Don't freeze essiac or warm it up in a microwave (use hot water to dilute and warm it).

Directions for Use according to the book Essiac Essentials:

1 fluid ounce (30 ml) essiac tea per day, diluted in 2 fluid ounces (60 ml) hot water.
This should be sipped, preferably at bedtime on an empty stomach.
Food should not be eaten within one hour before/after drinking the tea.

As a daily tonic or to enhance the immune system:

Take half a fluid ounce (15 ml) per day, diluted in one ounce hot water.

According to Sheila Snow and Mali Klein on page 38 of their book Essiac Essentials,
"It is very important to use the dosage as Rene recommended, which was based on more than 54 years' experience. Rene was very concerned about this, which is why she personally administered the dose to her patients. Depending on special circumstances, very occasionally in her later years, she would sometimes advise an initial dose of one fluid ounce twice daily for the first five, ten or (rarely) thirty days before reducing to one fluid ounce once a day."

Rene Caisse is quoted as saying, according to the same book,

"There is no need to to exceed this dose."
"People will not stick to the dose I give. They'll decide on their own
-- if a little's good, a lot's better. That's the way they think."

Sheila Snow's article "Old Ontario Remedies - 1922: Rene Caisse ESSIAC" (which appeared in the Canadian Journal of Herbalism, July 1991) says these are Rene Caisse's instructions:
 

Take one ounce of Essiac with two ounces of hot water every second day at bedtime, on an empty stomach two or three hours after supper.

Do not eat or drink anything for at least one hour after taking Essiac.

Continue the treatment every other day for thirty-two days, then take the treatment every three days.

Always keep Essiac refrigerated but never in the freezer.
Notes about side effects, although side affects are rare when taking essiac:

Diarrhea, headache, lower-back kidney ache, flu-like symptoms or upset stomach are usually caused by too high of a dose and not drinking enough water. Cut dose back to half the amount of essiac or stop for a few days, drinking a gallon of water every day to flush out your system (not juice, tea or other beverages). Anyone taking essiac should increase their water intake.

Allergy to essiac tea can also develop (rash and itchiness) if you take too much for too long. Some herbalists recommend using a "5 days on, 2 days off" rule with any herbal concoction.

Notes about who should not use essiac, and who should use caution:

Kathy Sedler has pages about Side Effects and Who Should Not Take Essiac Tea on her site at motherearthherbs.com (she quit selling essiac herbs to devote herself to research and writing).

According to Kathy Sedler's research, do not take essiac if you are pregnant, nursing or trying to conceive, if you have kidney disease, are prone to kidney stones or kidney infections, have ulcers or colitis, have a history of increased levels of iron in your blood, or have tumors that are encroaching on a major blood supply. Children under the age of 12 should not take this tea.

On the same page, Kathy Sedler's "When To Use Caution In Taking Essiac" is for those taking anticoagulant prescriptions, cardiac glycosides (like Digoxin), those with a cholecystectomy (removal of the gallbladder) and osteoporosis. Kathy has this caution for people with diabetes,

"Diabetics who are insulin dependant may need to adjust their dosage, also those on anti-diabetes medications. All diabetics should monitor their blood sugar closely while on this tea. Some of the constituents in this tea can affect the way glucose and insulin are taken up in the cells and utilized. Many people find they need less medication while taking this tea. This is not always the case, but is worthy of mention."
Rene Caisse discussed diabetes here and also here in her "I Was Canada's Cancer Nurse".

Rene Caisse Herbal Remedy (essiacsource.com) made by Michael Miller is an 8 herb formula. "We have used and studied both the 4 herb formula and the 8 herb formula, and have decided to manufacture and sell the 8 herb formula. We consider it slightly better than the 4 herb formula."
Michael Miller formula
Burdock Root 60.5%
Sheep Sorrel 19.5%
Rhubarb Root   4.8%
Slippery Elm bark     4.8%
Kelp    4.8%
Blessed Thistle   2.4%
Red Clover    2.4%
Watercress    0.3%
Rene Caisse formula percentages according to Snow and Klein
Burdock Root   53%
Sheep Sorrel   36%
Rhubarb Root     2%
Slippery Elm bark      9%
Rene's recipe has significantly more Sheep sorrel, which may be the important herb. Rene's recipe also has less Rhubarb root (too much of that herb will cause diarrhea). As for marked differences of Burdock root and Slippery Elm bark, who really knows their value? As for the value of the added 4 herbs, who really knows for sure?

This makes a year's supply for $5.00 or ?3.72, according to Essiac Essentials.

Herb Volume Weight Form % of Recipe
Burdock root   4.25 ozs. 120g pea-size cut 53%
Sheep sorrel   2.8 ozs. 80g powdered 36%
Slippery Elm bark   0.7 ozs. 20g powdered 9%
Turkey rhubarb root   0.18 oz. 5g powdered 2%

Another approach is to use volume measurements, if you are allergic to metric measurements. The trouble with volume measement is that herb volume can vary widely depending on supplier.

The purpose of this site is to provide information and education about all aspects of essiac including the history, recipes, available books, controversial issues, marketer ethics and comparison shopping.

This may help consumers avoid being mislead or ripped off by unethical essiac marketers.
There is no scientific evidence that proves Rene Caisse's formula cures, alleviates or prevents any disease or condition. Essiac "testimonies" are not medical proof and are usually promotion fodder. Talk to your health care provider before taking any kind of alternative herbal supplement.
