Essiac contains a mixture of four herbs: burdock root (Arctium lappa), sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella), slippery elm (Ulmus rubra), and turkey rhubarb (Rheum officinale), but the precise proportions are uncertain and it is not known whether the product marketed today as Essiac or related products such as Flor-Essence replicate the original formulation.
