Chuchuhuasi Products

Native to the Amazon Rainforest, Chuchuhuasi is a huge canopy tree whose bark has been used by Shamans and Medicine Men as a traditional remedy for centuries. It was used as a natural pain reliever, an invigorating general tonic and as an aphrodisiac. The bark is rich in many natural compounds such as alkaloids, triterpenes and sesquiterpenes which are thought to be responsible for its many benefits. It’s Peruvian name means “trembling back”, alluding to its traditional use to relieve back pain. It is still considered a powerful medicinal herb in South America where the locals soak the bark in sugar cane rum that is served in local bars as “Go Juice”.

Here at Indigo Herbs, our Chuchuhuasi range includes; Chuchuhuasi Extract Powder (4:1), Chuchuhuasi Tea, Chuchuhuasi Tincture and Chuchuhuasi Tea Bags.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Taking herbs in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Chuchuhuasi Tincture

Can be added to fruit juice or water and taken daily. Traditionally Taken: 1-3 ml up to three times a day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

  • Produced to GMP standards
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added
  • Packaged in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle with dropper

Manufacture Process

After careful harvesting, selection and cleaning Chuchuhuasi bark used to make this tincture undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Very happy with Indigo Herbs
Very happy with Indigo Herbs - the sage smudge stick smelled fresh and was more leaves than stems, which isn't always the case from other sources. The Cat's Claw also seems to be qualitative, although since I'm taking it with other tinctures I haven't tested it on its own.

Lovely Tea!
Loving my new Sasparilla Tea ordered through Indigo Herbs. It was promptly delivered and the ‘Buddha Tea’ brand is so environmentally friendly, healthy and uplifting spiritually: - Unbleached tea bags - A nice note on the tea bag ‘Make Tea, Not War’ - Anote to say ‘Nothing extra or artificial included - just the way nature intended! And the tea is so delicious, detoxing and relaxing! All that put together gets my vote! Thank you Indigo Herbs!
