Product Details

One half ounce, cut and sifted.100% Certified USDA Organic & Kosher.

Slippery Elm (Ulmus fulva), has a rich history. Native Americans have utilized the inner bark of this elm species for centuries. Historical records mention its use as a cough remedy and a preventative measure against scurvy. The bark's characteristic slipperiness when chewed comes from mucilage, a substance that soothes irritated tissues. This quality made Slippery Elm a popular folk medicine throughout American history.

Medicinally, Slippery Elm bark is most used in lozenge or tea form to soothe sore throats, coughs, and indigestion. The mucilage coats and protects inflamed tissues, promoting healing. Native Americans also used Slippery Elm poultices for external wounds and ulcers. While modern medicine offers more potent options for many ailments, Slippery Elm remains a popular natural remedy for certain conditions.

Culinary uses of Slippery Elm are less common but do exist. The powdered inner bark can be used as a thickener in soups and stews, like how psyllium husk is used today.

In some herbal magic systems, Elm trees in general are associated with strength, resilience, and communication, specifically being used in rituals for healing or protection.
