Slippery Elm Herbal Tea
Overview of Slippery Elm Tea
It is the inner bark of the tree that is used as a herb and for medicinal purposes. It is quite pleasant tasting and the inner bark is slippery and fiberous, so when mixed with water it turns into a porridge like substance.
Traditionally it was used as a food source and medicine for the first nations people and the european settlers.
It has been used to treat many serious illnesses such as cancer. The bark was also one of the original ingredients in the famous Essiac Cancer Remedy.
It has been used over the years to treat the following illnesses and conditions:
The bark contains a soothing gelatinous fiber or mucilage. The bark also contains high concentrations of anti-oxidants and flavonoids.
Sometimes it is dried and ground into a powder. This powder is then used to make a tea. The bark powder is readily available from health food and vitamin providers.
Tea is generally made by mixing a teaspoonful of the powder into a thin and perfectly smooth paste with cold water and then pouring on a pint of boiling water, steadily stirring meanwhile. It can, if desired, be flavoured with cinnamon, nutmeg or lemon rind.
This is the traditional recipe for making a tea or tonic from the powdered bark.
