A healthy herbal tea with a sweet flavor and a slightly bitter finish? Have some of Rihla’s Senna ground leaves and enjoy your new detox experience. The first medicinal use of Senna leaves was recorded by Arabian and European physicians as early as 9th century AD. The strong medicinal capacity of this plant is associated with laxative, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying properties. Consume moderately (1-day x up to 2 weeks) in order to avoid low electrolyte levels, dependency for proper gut function, and weakened bowels.
