Slippery Elm is often used in spells designed to stop gossip.
It is also given to children as a charm warn about the neck to ensure the child grows up with a persuasive tongue.
Native to the USA and Canada, this marvelous medicinal herb is a gentle and effective remedy for irritated states of the mucous membranes in the chest.
Slippery Elm was used medicinally by Native Americans as a poultice (compress) for wounds, boils, ulcers, fevers, colds, and bowel ailments.
I make an immune tincture for children, and this is one of my key ingredients. Taken regularly Slippery Elm is nutritious, soothing, and is good for those who suffer from digestion issues. It can bring instant relief from acidity, diarrhea, and gastroenteritis. It may also relieve conditions such as colic, inflammation of the gut, constipation, and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).
At home I use Slippery Elm for coughs and bronchitis.
Forms of Slippery Elm: Infusion, Poultice, Capsules, and Powder.
