Slippery Elm Bark

$2.00

Botanical Name:  Ulmus rubra

Slippery elm is a species of large, deciduous elm trees native to eastern North America. Our slippery elm bark is composed of the inner bark of organic Ulmus rubra. The bark was traditionally utilized for its various healthful properties by Native Americans. Today, it is often infused as slippery elm tea and drunk for its mucilaginous properties.

The slippery elm is a large, deciduous tree that is native to North America from Texas to Manitoba, and from Florida to Quebec. Native Americans used soaked slippery elm bark as natural bandages. Many tribes also wrapped slippery elm around stored food to prevent spoilage. Slippery elm also served as a food during famine and for making porridge for small children and elderly persons. Slippery elm belongs to the Ulmaceae family.

Teas, infusions, topical preparations. Up to 5 tablespoons (15 grams) of slippery elm bark can be dissolved in a cup (240 ml) of water. Sometimes found encapsulated and as a liquid extract.
