Ulmus rubra- Slippery Elm Tincture
Slippery elm is sweet herb with a mild, slightly earthen flavor. It is highly mucilaginous and has a particular affinity for the digestive system. It is the perfect choice for coating and soothing inflamed and irritated mucous membranes, and making it invaluable for sore throats, ulcers, and any inflammatory condition of the gut. Slippery elm’s alkaline salt content makes it helpful in neutralizing excess acidity in the digestive system. A tonic food-medicine containing nutritious sugars, minerals, and some fiber, it is generally considered a highly safe herb. Some even eat it like porridge, especially during convalescence.
