This month we’ll be taking a stroll into the woods to visit with majestic Slippery Elm.
A multi-faceted healer, this herb can be used in many ways for healing. Because of his mucilaginous nature, tincturing is not usually done but we can find many ways to make use of Slippery Elm from poultices to vinegars and in salves too. As a nutritive, he makes a wonderfully sweet healing gruel (and pudding too!). We’ll explore different ways to use him for both internal and external use for soothing the mucus membranes, respiratory system and the digestive tract as well as many other health issues.
This issue we’ll sing about Slippery Elm, make nourishing and healing remedies, have fun with leaf rubbings and so much more!
