Senna is native to tropical Africa and cultivated in Egypt, the Sudan and elsewhere. People in northern Africa and southwestern Asia have used senna to support healthy bowel function for centuries.
Botanical name: Cassia angustifolia Vahl
SENNA LEAF – Frontier Co-op Senna Leaf (Cassia angustifolia Vahl) comes from the Cassia species – one of over 250 species that contain the substance anthraquinone. It is mostly cultivated in Egypt and Sudan but it is used around the world, especially in North Africa and Southwest Asia.
GREAT FOR TEA – Native to tropical Africa, Senna leaf is primarily used to make tea or to enhance other teas. Simply steep ½ teaspoon of Senna leaf with 1 cup of boiling water for 3-5 minutes. Its slightly sweet yet strong and bitter undertones go great with green teas, or can be combined with honey to make a special blend.
BULK QUANTITY & VALUE – When you purchase Frontier Co-op Senna Leaves, you’re getting a full pound of it. Since you only need about 1/2 teaspoon at a time, it will last for an incredibly long time.
SOURCED FROM INDIA - Our Senna Leaf is kosher certified and non-irradiated. It is sourced directly from India. These leaves are harvested around April and September to preserve maximum potency and purity.
