Overview

Slippery Elm is native to North America and has a long history of use both internally and externally. Historically, the long strips of dried bark were used also used as bandages and wrapped around stored food to help prevent spoilage. Slippery elm works well on its own and when combined with other herbs and is safe as both a medicine and a food.

Typical Preparations

Taken internally as a tea, powder, capsules, or extract. Slippery elm is best used with warm or cool water, as very hot water may damage the mucilage. Due to the gentle flavour, slippery elm can easily be mixed into foods such as porridge or applesauce. 

Medicinal Uses

Slippery elm is an excellent soothing herb. It is especially beneficial for relieving inflammatory digestive issues, acid reflux, sore throats, and respiratory issues. Topically, slippery elm can help to relieve skin irritation when applied as a poultice.
