Essiac Tea For Children: Dosing guide

Here is a guide for you to find the correct essiac tea dosage for a child. Sometimes the child might experience loose stools when first using essiac. This is a good thing - as it is helping expel what should not be in there any longer!

However, if the effect is too uncomfortable, feel free to start with a smaller dose. After a few days increase the dose to tolerance. This side effect is normally short-lived and certainly should not be uncontrolled diarrhea - it is usually just an increased frequency in the need to use the bathroom.


If your child weighs up to 15 lbs.
START WITH 1/4 ounce (7 mL) of tea twice per day. If tolerated well, WORK UP TO 1/2 ounce twice per day (14 mL). 

If your child weighs 15-35 lbs.
START WITH 1/2 ounce twice per day. If tolerated well, WORK UP TO 1 ounce twice per day. 

If your child weighs 35-55 lbs.
START WITH 1 ounce twice per day. If tolerated well, WORK UP TO 2 ounces twice per day. 

If your child weighs 55-85 lbs.
START WITH 2 ounces twice per day. WORK UP TO 3 ounces twice per day. 

If your child weighs 85 lbs. or more,
START WITH 3 ounces twice per day. WORK UP TO 3 ounces three times per day.
