Essiac: New, 1-Ounce, Concentrated Version FAQ

With the change to a new, concentrated form of Essiac have come a whole new batch of quesitions. Here are some of the more common questions, along with their answers.
The name on the label says “Sheep Sorrel, Burdock,” Did I buy the right product?

Sure did. Essiac is a blend of four herbs: Sheep Sorrel, Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Bark, and Rhubarb Root. The name on the label is just the first two items on the list.

I notice the alcohol content in the new Essiac is listed as 35%–45%. That seems like a lot of alcohol.

Yes it does. The alcohol is what keeps the Essiac potent for longer periods; more that 4 years, as opposed to a few months.

Keep in mind that the dosage is only 8 drops in most cases, so we’re not really talking about that much alcohol.

If you’re still concerned, you can float the Essiac on the top of the AD (or whatever you're using) after it’s warmed, and let it sit for about a minute. That should be all the time necessary for the alcohol to evaporate.
