Laxative Tea is a loose leaf tea contains senna, licorice root, and other natural herbs. Senna is a non-prescription laxative used to treat constipation and also to clear the bowel before diagnostic tests such as a colonoscopy. Senna is also used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hemorrhoids, and to aid in weight loss. Licorice root coats the digestive tract, soothing indigestion and encouraging easier elimination. This formula also contains Culver’s root, an ingredient traditionally utilized by Native Americans in the Ojibwe and Chippewa tribes as a “blood purifier.” The use of the herb, mostly in moderate doses, as a laxative and detoxifying agent was adopted early on by the European settlers.
