Essiac tea with Sheep Sorrel roots included!

Our Mission

Digging Sheep Sorrel Root on the SelwayA message from Debbie Jakovac, owner and manager of Blue Moon Herbs and Rene Caisse  I was first introduced to Essiac in 2007. Since 2010 I have been working with Mali Klein, Essiac researcher and author of six books on Rene Caisse and Essiac, including The Complete Essiac Essentials, 2010, Black Root Medicine, the Original Native American Essiac Formula, 2014, and The Essiac Essentials Handbook, 2016. Mali is also caretaker of the world's largest body of Essiac history, the Sheila Snow Fraser Essiac Archive Collection. She had the unique privilege of learning from and working with Sheila Snow and Mary McPherson, who both worked directly with Rene Caisse.

Mali returned from Europe to visit and share her Essiac research findings and conclusions with us in 2012, 2013, 2014, and twice in 2018. She and I have presented three Essiac Master classes and numerous mini-seminars, talks and informational gatherings in the NW US.  In 2012 and again in 2015 I visited Bracebridge Ontario, Rene Caisse's hometown, to meet the people still there that knew her, and to see the history first-hand. Mali joined me in 2012, and in 2015 I traveled alone and had the honor of taking part in an Ojibwe vision quest in the Canadian bush, right from that same part of the world where Essiac came out of the wilderness in the 1890s.

Mali's many years of researching Essiac and our joint work to keep the knowledge of Essiac alive into the future will be culminating at a very special gathering this coming summer, June 28-30 2019 in Geneva Switzerland:  the First International Health Congress in Integrative Oncology and Ethical and Sustainable Patient Management.  Mali will be headlining the Ancestral Medicine section and formally introducing Essiac to Europe and the World. It is an honor beyond words to see Essiac in the light of this new day!

We will continue to work to preserve the legacy of the Medicine Man, Rene Caisse and Essiac and to shine a light on the merit of the original 8-herb Native American formula that Rene used in the years prior to developing the classic 4-herb Essiac.

We have been growing the herbs for Essiac in the Flathead Valley here in my home state of Montana, primarily Sheep sorrel, for the root harvest. We have been incorporating permaculture principles into our practices, with good results.  The commercial availability of Sheep sorrel roots remains almost nonexistent and we are working on creating a small business model for growing the Essiac herbs and making the tea for local and regional markets, vs. the huge corporate approach of the past.

Basically, we are dedicated to providing top-rate Essiac information and herbs so that the world will have something valuable to take into the future. Essiac has so much to offer and it is a great honor to be advocating for it.  Our mission is to help ensure that our grandchildren will be able to grow their own herbs and make and take their own Essiac -- in peace and for wellness!

May it be Good All Over Again.

Debbie Jakovac
