Traditional Medicinals Organic Throat Coat is a complex and aromatic blend of herbal tastes – sweet, earthy and viscous. Contains licorice root, organic slippery elm bark and marshmallow root, plus a proprietary blend of demulcent herbs, to help bring soothing relief to the membranes lining your throat.
One of the primary sources of wild slippery elm bark (an ingredient in this tea) is in Eastern Kentucky. We are honored to partner with rural Appalachian families there who approach their bark collection with a deep reverence for the trees and plants of these hilly forests. Carefully harvesting limited and sustainable amounts of the bark by hand, they are maintaining the health of the trees, and preserving this precious resource for generations to come.
Organic Throat Coat®
Personality……Smooth and silky.
Herbal Power……Help you sing it loud, say it proud, stand up and be heard.
Reason to Love……Slippery elm or Ulmus rubra (Latin for “red elm,” so called for its lovely reddish bark) is a beautiful, native North American elm tree. It’s the inner bark of this tree that is actually called “slippery elm” due to its, yes, slippery, smooth, and slimy-in-a-good-way properties. Combined with licorice and marshmallow root, we think we all need a little comfort sometimes so we can get back to being our best.
Taste……Sweet and earthy, silky, with a distinct licorice taste.
