Ultimate Essiac Brewing Instructions

 The Ultimate Essiac brewing instructions are very easy to follow. It takes just 10 minutes to brew essiac tea - it's as easy as making a pot of pasta! You'll make 2 quarts at a time and store them in a container of your choosing in the refrigerator.

Step 1. Boil the necessary amount of spring water in a large pot.


The amounts for each size brew are:

To  Make           Use                    Best for

One gallon         136 oz. water     Aggressive or Aggressive PLUS


Two quarts         68 oz. water      Maintenance or children and animals over 55 lb.


One quart           36 oz. water      Children and animals 33-55 lb.


One pint               20 oz.  water     Children and animals 32 lb. and under


 (Note: There is additional water used is to account for evaporation).

Step 2. Add the correct amount of essiac herbs.


The amounts for each size brew are:


To Make                          Use

One gallon tea                 4 oz. herbs (2 packets)

Two quarts                       2 oz. herbs (1 packet)

One quart                        1 oz. herbs (1/2 packet)

One pint                           ½ oz. herbs (1/4 packet)


  1. Boil for 10 minutes on a medium boil, stirring occasionally. 
  2. Leave the essiac in the pot covered. Turn the heat off, and let the essiac sit at room temperature for at least twelve hours, but less than 24 hours. You do not have to boil the tea twice.
  3. Pour the essiac into a container or containers and refrigerate. Do not strain the herbs out. They are meant to be consumed. Stir your container with a large spoon and pour each serving immediately. It's OK to leave the essiac in an open topped pitcher. Always take essiac cold. Reheating risks overprocessing by "cooking" it twice.

  • It's recommended to take 3 oz. of essiac tea three times per day if your goal is to improve your health.
  • If you have been given a stage 4 cancer or otherwise terminal diagnosis, it's recommended to take 6 oz. of essiac three times per day.
  • If your goal is simply to remain healthy, you can take 3 oz. of essiac twice per day.
  • Avoid eating 2 hours before taking essiac and 1 hour after taking essiac.
  • This means, if you finish breakfast at 8am, you may have essiac at 10am. If you wish, you may have another snack at 11am.
  • There is no need to go off essiac or take breaks. If you wish to improve your health, be sure to take essiac for at least six months without interruption.
