Our changing world is taking its toll on our health. Our bodies are paying the price of toxicity in the air, compromised drinking water and a processed diet laden with pesticides and preservatives. With consistent use, Flor*Essence may help the body excrete wastes and toxins. Made famous by Canadian nurse Rene Caisse. A traditional Ojibwa blend of 8 premium quality herbs. Certified organic.

- Burdock root (Arctium lappa)
- Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella)
- Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra)
- Watercress (Nasturtium officinale)
- Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)
- Blessed Thistle (Cnicus benedictus)
- Kelp (Laminaria digitata)
- Turkish Rhubarb root (Rheum palmatum)
Each of the eight herbs in Flor*Essence exhibits specific biological activity and boasts impressive remedial qualities in its own right. Together, in precise amounts, these eight ingredients become an entirely new entity, enhancing each other's benefits to create a powerful synergistic healing effect.
A Study conducted by the University of British Columbia in Canada found Flor*Essence to possess powerful antioxidant properties. For example, one molecule of vitamin C or vitamin E destroys one free radical, whereas one molecule of Flor*Essence destroys 14 free radicals.
It is best to take Flor*Essence at least 30 minutes before eating, or at bedtime. Dilute the liquid with an equal amount of filtered hot water, and sip slowly. Also, aim to drink two litres of pure, clean water every day, to help flush out the toxins released by the tea. That may sound like a lot, but if you think of it as only four 500ml bottles, it's not so much.

History of Flor*Essence
There are many herbal formulas on the market purporting to re-create the astounding results that famous Canadian nurse Rene Caisse had with the thousands of patients she treated with her tea. Only Flor*Essence came into being through her dedicated work and her partnership with the eminent Dr. Charles Brusch.
Little did Rene know that she would end up dedicating over 50 years of her life to this traditional formula. She began harvesting the herbs and offering the tea as a general tonic for her patients. Rene re-worked the recipe many times throughout her career, but it was only when she partnered with the eminent Dr. Charles Brusch (personal physician to President John F. Kennedy) that they discovered that the original eight ingredients provided the most synergistic effect.
They joined forces in 1958 at the Brusch Medical Centre in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and worked and learned together for five years. Rene then returned to Ontario to continue her work, but they remained in close contact, and Dr. Brusch retained the rights to the formula when she passed away in 1978, at the age of 91. He continued their research with many of his patents, and reported a variety of positive results, including: healthy appetite and energy, improved sleep, an overall feeling of wellbeing. Dr. Brusch stated that the herbal tea identified and gathered toxins, broke them down, and discharged them.
