Cascara & Lavender


A variation of our popular Cascara Compound formula for colon cleansing, but omitting the ‘hot’ herbs – cayenne and ginger – and replacing them with lavender a ‘cool’ herb but one with circulatory properties. Avoiding the hot herbs suits a few people. For most people the regular Cascara Compound is fine. Or, if you want the “complete solution”, take the Colon Programme. This consists of 3 complimentary products and a helpful leaflet, and is sold in 30-day packs. We recommend 90 days – 3 packs – for a course.

All our cascara herbal formulations support natural bowel cleansing. Some people find that taking supplements such as these is very helpful for them. In terms of healthy bowel regularity, we like to aim to have a bowel movement as often as a person eats – so, 3 x a day for most of us. Please email or phone us (9-5.30, Mon-Fri) for any help or extra information.


Cascara & Lavender Capsules

More information

Some people don’t like even small amounts of cayenne pepper or ginger, so we make this version of our Cascara Compound substituting these with Lavender, a “cooler”, natural circulatory aid.

The prime ingredient in this colon cleansing formulation is cascara bark – Latin name cascara sagrada – along with turkey rhubarb root, barberry, wild yam, lavender, fennel and bayberry. Together, these make a fine herbal bowel cleanse supplement.

We recommend 1, 3 times a day, thought 2 or even 3, 3 times a day can be taken if desired to help bowel cleansing.

A diet to help the bowel is one high in natural fibre. The easiest way to achieve this its to include a high proportion of raw foods, especially salads of all sorts, in your diet.


(Min per Vegetarian capsule) Cascara 95mg, Lavender 38 mg, Barberry 38mg, Rhubarb Root 38mg, Bayberry 38mg, Wild Yam 38mg, Fennel 38mg.
