Set your Zen Timer for 20 minutes to make Slippery Elm Tea

Natural Remedies for the Winter Season.

A sore-throat soother extraordinaire, slippery elm (Ulmus rubra) products are high in “mucilage,” a substance that coats the throat and helps relieve coughs.

How to use: Look for slippery elm lozenges at health-food stores; follow package directions. To make a tea, simmer 1 tablespoon dried slippery elm bark per cup of water; set your Zen Timer with Chime for 10-15 minutes, steep, strain and drink.  Add a small almount of honey to sweeten.
