A large deciduous tree, the slippery elm is native to North America from Texas to Manitoba, and from Florida to Quebec, and grows with the potential to reach heights of up to 60 feet (20 meters). It is the inner bark that is the inner gem coveted for its mucilaginous, slippery nature, which is harvested in the spring. It becomes thick and viscous when blended with room temperature water.

Traditionally, Native Americans employed soaked slippery elm bark as natural bandages. Many tribes also wrapped the bark around stored food to prolong freshness and avert spoilage. Ulmus rubra provided food during famine, as well, and was fashioned into porridge for small children and the elderly. Early American settlers were introduced to the beneficial qualities of this botanical by the Native Americans.

Our slippery elm extract is made from the macerated organic dried inner bark mixed with organic alcohol. It has a fairly sweet taste that blends well with other extracts like licorice, marshmallow, or peppermint. Slippery elm tincture can be added to water or juice. It also makes a nice addition to a cup of tea such as happy tummy tea.
