  1. Makes good corn silk tea 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Jun 2021

    This stuff makes good corn silk tea, which in turn is good for your kidneys (or so says my doctor). I used it before and re-ordered when that ran out. Keep in mind corn silk powder is different, and I have no idea if taking it whole has the same effect.
    Don't forget to look at the shipping cost. Larger orders end up costing significantly less per volume.

    This is my second time purchasing from Mountain Maus, I just got my package of herbs, just opening the box, all is packaged well, have not used any of the new herbs, but I can report on the other herbs that I have purchased from Mountain Maus, they were all wonderful and I am using most of them in a blended formula under the care of a Master herbalist to correct a condition in my body and they are working. Thanks for supplying such wonderful organic herbs. I will order again in the future Lords willing.
