History: Slippery Elm is a very versatile tree that was used by Native Americans and was later adopted by colonists. Both Native Americans and American Revolutionary soldiers used the bark of the tree to create a type of oatmeal to eat. Medicinally, powdered Slippery Elm bark was mixed with water to make a healing slime that was used to reduce swelling, take venom out of a bite or a sting, and treat sore throats and farm worker chaffing.
