The “slippery” part of the common name comes from the mucilaginous lining of the bark, which is the only part of the tree harvested. Native Americans applied the freshly shredded pith as bandages and made infusions from the dried material. The demulcent qualities of the mucilage provides a protective film for irritated, inflamed tissue, both internally and externally. The dried herb is also traditionally prepared as tea, alone or in combination with chamomile, mint or other herbs.
Slippery elm bark is also used to make infused oils, tinctures and liquid extracts.
Decorative Usages - Adds textural interest to botanical displays.
