-¼ cup liquid Herbal Decoction of Elderberry Syrup Herb Packet
-½ tsp. Marshmallow root powder
-2 Tbsp. raw honey , or ¼ cup Sugar
-½ cup Slippery Elm Bark powder
Dissolve ½ tsp. Marshmallow root powder in ¼ cup hot Elderberry packet decoction. Stir to combine. (Prepare cold infusion during this step if using dried Marshmallow root.)
Put 2 Tbsp. honey into a glass measuring cup, and add Marshmallow root solution (or Marshmallow root cold infusion) to measuring cup until you have a total of ¼ cup liquid. Discard remaining Marshmallow root solution.
Measure ½ cup Slippery Elm Bark powder into a mixing bowl, creating a well in the middle of the powder with your fingers. Pour honey/Marshmallow root solution over the Slippery Elm Bark powder.
With clean hands, mix ingredients together until you can form a smooth ball of dough. Break small chunks off dough ball and form them into small lozenge-shaped drops. (I prefer oblong drops that are the size of a grape, but yours can be any shape/size.)
Roll finished lozenges in a bit of Slippery Elm Bark powder so they are not sticky. Place on a plate or parchment paper and allow to dry completely (about 24 hours).
Wrap each lozenge in a small piece of parchment paper or waxed paper. Store in a cool, dark, dry place. They will keep for a few months.
Allow lozenge to slowly dissolve in your mouth. Repeat as needed.
