Video on the Chaga Mushroom. We suggest using most botanicals  3 times (or more), to get all of what the plant has to give.  Chaga is a non sustainable fungi, if over harvested and used inappropriately. Knowing how to harvest and use will help preserve this gift of the forest.

Here is another great site with good information!

I make a chaga chai teaspoon of Chaga with a few chai tea bags will make dozens of good cups of tea..keep the brew going, add some cinnamon sticks etc. keep adding water and brewing until the colour and flavour wanes. We honour the medicine when we use it thoroughly.

BOTANICAL DETOX- from BEAR ROOT BOTANICALS- formerly known as Essiac +

Slippery Elm Bark, Sheep Sorrel, Turkey Rhubarb Root, Burdock Root & Chaga make up this powerful detoxification formula. I have added Chaga to the formula and in so doing have named this formula- Bear Root Botanicals- DETOX.
  The original botanical formula was shared with a nurse named Rene Caisse near Ottawa Ontario, Canada by an Ojibwe Medicine person in the 1930’s~ she spent her life sharing it and assisting all who asked. She named it Essiac , her name spelled backwards. The man she shared it with prior to passing, shared it with me in the 1980’s. I have been preparing and sharing ever since. To prepare- 1/4 cup formula- 11 cups spring water. low simmer for 20 minutes- strain. I use the formula 3 x’s prior to composting. The second/third brewing will of course be of lesser strength.
Keep in glass container in fridge. Mason jars work great. 

Drinking sufficient amounts of good quality spring water is essential while detoxifying.
