Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

Our Slippery Elm Bark Powder can blended with a superfood smoothie, mixed with fruit juice, taken simply with water or sprinkled into food.


Suggested serving range is 1-4g up to 3 times a day. It is recommended that Slippery Elm Bark Powder is added to a large glass of water (300ml) as taking the powder with water increases effectiveness.

Indigo Herbs Slippery Elm Bark Powder comes from trees that have been harvested in the traditional way by herbal experts. The trees used are from a sustainable source and either scheduled to be cut down or grown specifically to be harvested for their bark. After the tree has been cut down, the outer bark is stripped and the inner bark harvested. The viscous inner bark is then dried in strips with only the best bark pieces used. The bark strips are then milled into a powder which is tested for foreign bodies and other chemicals before it can be packed and shipped.

Pregnant women should not take Slippery Elm without talking to a medical herbalist first.

This is the finest quality Slippery Elm that I've bought. I was advised to try it to head off bouts of Irritable Bowel Syndrome and so far so good! It is very finely ground and tastes like Brazil nuts. Because of the nature of the product, I usually leave it to soak in a small glass of juice for about five minutes, then give it a good stir. It is very soothing to the digestion. Wish I'd found it years ago!

slippery elm powder is a produce i have used for years, but up until now sourcing it has been a bit of a lottery. I would like to thank Indigo herbs for their prompt service/delivery of this quality produce, I will be recommending your services to others.

My naturopath recommends me to take slippery elm for my indigestion and I found it very helpful. It calms down my tummy and better than taking Gaviscon.

I suffer from IBD and this product has been a definite help in releaving the symptoms. The taste is good, mild and it goes especially well with porridge. Just dont use city tap water for substance as ive found that being the main catalyst for my symptoms among other things processed with it.

I like that this is a pure powder so I know how much I'm really benefiting from it. The packet is very easy to reseal, unlike most products these days. Not the nicest aroma and it does need a bit of work to stop lumps appearing when rehydrated but it has a surprisingly acceptable flavour. I like mixing the powder with just enough honey to make a paste before pouring hot water over it. I am trying it to as an aid to a healthy throat for singing and I'm not disappointed.

This is a good company and I have used them for a while now. I am seeing a herbalist for S.I.B.O and apart from the herbal remedies that she makes up for me she recommended I take slippery elm and L-Glutamine in a gruel to heal my stomach. It's not particularly pleasant (rather slimy) but that's the point; it clings to the stomach wall with the glutamine and aids healing. I would say that it is a good product.

Great service and delivery.. I do find this powder a little difficult to blend without lumps.. I found cold water works best and make into a thick paste before adding a very little water in increments till it's the desired consistency.. I have it neat and don't add it to juices..

I already knew that slippery elm bark powder was very healing as two of my relatives used and had remarkable results. I have recently experienced a very painful bout of diverticulitis and have found that using this product has been very beneficial. I take it in fruit juice and it is quite pleasant.

My lack of understanding meant I was surprised when this went very gloopy when I tried to make tea out of it - I now don't believe this is how it is supposed to be prepared. It's much better as part of a smoothie etc. However, the fact that it was gloopy reassures me that it would have lined my throat as I had wanted, if I had drunk it. The error was on my part and not a reflection of the powder which was of high quality.

I've had bad IBS for 15 years.. was using capsules and paying silly money for them and compared to this powder they are rubbish. This is the real deal. IBS is 80% better. half teaspoon each day sorts me out. i was taking loads of capsules with not much effect.

This slippery elm product is sourced sustainably and is very pure, both of which was of prime importance to me and why I ordered from Indigo Herbs. I find this product to be very helpful in soothing the whole of the digestive tract, and is also helping with the nausea I have experienced due to the removal of my gallbladder some six months ago. This slippery elm really seems to be effective in settling things down and making life more pleasant.

Used to help relieve Psoriasis symptoms. This is the second pack I have purchased so to early to report any change. I have high hopes because there have been a lot of good reviews on this product. It has a strange taste so 2 or 3 spoons of chocolate milkshake helps.
