Ingredients & Description

This powder is especially useful as it can be taken internally directly, made into an extract, put into capsules, or used externally as a poultice. This powder is 100% pure and free of any excipients, preservatives or additives.

Slippery elm poultices are a mainstay of herbal medicine for treating itchy, inflamed, or irritated skin as well as cuts, scrapes, scratches, and minor burns. The mucilage in slippery elm bark also relieves inflammation and irritation in the throat and urinary tract when the herb is taken as a tea or infusion.

Slippery elm also helps neutralize excess stomach acid. Scientists believe that the mucilages activate a reflex that causes the stomach to secrete more of its own protective mucus. Slippery elm is used in natural medicine to treat chronic diarrhea, esophagitis, gastritis, peptic and duodenal ulcers, and ulcerative colitis.

Suggested Use: As an herbal dietary supplement, stir 1 teaspoon into 1 cup of water and simmer for several minutes. Let cool. Add honey and sip or gargle, several times a day.

Slippery Elm Powder can be used as a tea by boiling 1 pint of water and adding 1 oz. Powder, stirring constantly. Drink 6 oz. Three to four times a day.
