Senna leaf | Cassia acutifolia | Organic


Senna leaf is a traditional laxative.

This means it speeds the transit time of the bowel, by stimulating the nerve endings lining the bowel. Senna is a well reserached and well used herb. Its use is safe but it is recommended for shot term usage and is best as a treatment for consipation when used alongisde a bulking laxative such as Psyllium hulls.

Senna is also found in our Laxative tea blend with other herbs that may reduce the griping that can sometmes be associated with Senna use.

All of our teas are organic or wild harvested from natural surroundings. Enjoy!

This herb has GRAS rating {Generally Recognised as Safe}. However do not use if pregnant unless under medical supervision. Senna should not be used long term. Using Senna may decrease the absorption of some medications – please check with your health professional.


Steep for 10-20 minutes in a pot. Drink at night for 3 days in a row to clear the bowel. Do not use for longer than 10 days in a row – the bowel can become used to the effects of Senna and normal peristalsis (movement of the bowel) can become lazy.
