The volatile oils in chamomile are primarily responsible for the herb’s analgesic (pain-relieving), anti-inflammatory, and antispasmodic effects.

Mullein contains mucilaginous substances, called polysaccharides, which protect mucous membranes and prevent them from absorbing toxins. The cooling, soothing properties of the mucilage lubricates tissues, reduces inflammation, and enhances healing which is beneficial for treating diarrhea, gastrointestinal inflammation, and hemorrhoids. Mullein also provides analgesic (pain-relieving), antibacterial, antiseptic, and diuretic activity. Mullein’s antispasmodic effect helps relieve abdominal cramping.

Slippery elm has been found to be an effective remedy for irritation of the mucus membranes, stomach, intestines, and urinary tubules. When slippery elm makes contact with inflamed surfaces, its mucilage coats and soothes irritated tissues, helping to protect them from injury and drawing out irritants and toxic substances. Slippery elm is believed to also soothe inflammation by stimulating nerve endings in the stomach and intestines which in turn, results in the secretion of mucosal fluids. Due to its high mucilage content, slippery elm has been shown to be quite effective for absorbing toxins from the bowel, balancing intestinal flora, and reduces bowel transit time. Slippery elm has been found extremely beneficial for acidity, arthritic inflammation, asthma, bronchitis, chronic cystitis, colic, colitis, constipation, convalescence, coughs, diarrhea, diverticulitis, gastroenteritis, hemorrhoids, inflammatory and irritable bowel conditions, pleurisy, sore throat, tuberculosis, ulcers, and weak digestion.
