Demulcent herbs provide a protective coating and soothe irritated body tissues. Many herbs with this property are both demulcent (soothing on the mucus membranes on the inside) and emollient (soothing to inflamed skin on the outside). These plants are much valued in herbal healing to soothe and protect all the way down from the mouth and throat to the urinary tract.
