Wildcrafted Meadowsweet
SMILE Price: $2.29
Licorice Sticks, 7"
SMILE Price: $2.29
Due to high amounts of salicin, meadowsweet is often used for pain relief; however, its cooling, bitter, and mucilaginous properties make it useful for addressing mild digestive discomfort and gastritis.* Calamus, also known as Sweet Flag, is a classic herb for the gastro-intestinal tract. It combines many beneficial properties - it is soothing, mucilagenous, carminative (gas-relieving), stimulating, and bitter all at once. Calamus is commonly used for low appetite, dyspepsia, reflux, gastritis, ulcers, and general digestive weakness.

In Ayurvedic medicine Calamus is believed to strengthen wisdom, mental clarity, and the voice. It is used to enhance memory, concentration, and to tone the nervous system in general. Chinese medicine practitioners use Calamus to recover the voice after a stroke.

Herbal Power
Aromatic and sweetly minty, spearmint is widely used as a refreshing beverage.

Reason to Love
We like to think of spearmint as the fun-loving, slightly less intense cousin of peppermint. In fact, spearmint and peppermint are so closely related, and look so much alike, they're often confused for one another. Soft and sweet, with that characteristic minty zing, spearmint is so named because of its pointy, spear-like leaves. Milder than peppermint, it is still aromatic and refreshing. We love it for its distinctly spearminty, mildly sweet flavor.

Taste
Fragrant, sweet and minty.

Plantain is useful for gastritis, gastric and duodenal ulcers, ulcerative colitis, interstitial cystitis, and dental pain.

Licorice root (Glycerrhiza glabra or uralensis):*
Has an ancient history of use in China and the Middle East. This intensely sweet root is an adaptogen, demulcent, expectorant, pectoral, antiviral and antidepressant. Licorice strengthens endocrine function, especially the adrenals, ovaries, Isles of Langerhans and hypothalamus making it useful for chronic fatigue syndrome, menopause, hypoglycemia and autoimmune disease. The demulcent action heals mucous membrane tissue especially the stomach (ulcers), large and small intestine (IBS) and lung (dry, irritated cough). Excessive use of Licorice can elevate blood pressure.

This whole root has not been processed to remove glycyrrhizic acid. When glycyrrhizin is removed from Licorice, the product is called deglycyrrhizinated licorice or DGL.

Licorice root has been used since ancient times, across many cultures as food and as medicine. In Chinese medicine, Licorice is an ingredient in nearly all herbal formulas for the traditional purpose of "harmonizing" the separate herbs involved. This important tonic herb is often called 'the grandfather of herbs'.

Chinese Medical practitioners believe that Licorice is such a good harmonizing herb because it protects the body from the effect of some of the stronger herbs that may be added in some Chinese herbal formulas. It does this by protecting the liver cells from free-radical damage. By doing so it also augments the liver's ability to process toxins.

The Slippery Elm is native to eastern Canada, and the eastern and central United States, where it is found mostly in the Appalachian Mountains. Its name refers to the soothing slippery consistency the inner bark assumes when it is chewed or mixed with water. Native American healers have used the dried inner bark of Slippery Elm trees for centuries, internally and externally.

From 1820 to 1960, the bark was listed in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia as a demulcent, emollient and antitussive. Slippery Elm has been used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for gastrointestinal symptoms.

Presently the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes Slippery Elm as a safe and effective option for sore throat and respiratory irritation due to coughs.
