What is red elm ?
Red elm bark should be in every family’s medicine cabinet. A tall tree native to eastern North America, it can be found in Quebec, in the south and the west of the province. Well-known to Native Americans, it is an emollient with a high nutritional value.
The phloem (the tender part of the interior bark, rich in mucilage), was collected to create a preparation that was used to feed babies, convalescents, the elderly and anyone suffering from digestive problems. A decoction was also applied to soothe wounds and different skin irritations. In 1890, the Sisters of Providence wrote their Traité élémentaire de matière médicale (Translation: Elementary Treaty of Medical Matters) in which they state that “There is nothing better to treat wounds, internal and external”.
Red elm clears infections and is easily absorbed by our body. It is efficient in cases of bronchopulmonary irritations, sore throats, colds, coughing and gastrointestinal pains. The medicinal properties are numerous: emollient, pectoral, nutritious, expectorant, cough suppressant, diuretic, lightly astringent, tonic and also soothes the throat and respiratory tract.
