Common marshmallow is a species indigenous to Africa, which is used as a medicinal plant and ornamental plant. A confection made from the root since ancient Egyptian time evolved into today's marshmallow treat. The leaves, flowers and the root of A. officinalis (marshmallow) all have medicinal properties. These are reflected in the name of the genus, which comes from the Greek (althein), meaning "to heal". In traditional Chinese medicine, Althaea officinalis is known as (pinyin: yàoshǔkuí). It increases the flow of breast milk and soothes the bronchial tubes. The root extract (halawa extract) is sometimes used as flavouring in the making of a Middle Eastern snack called halva. The flowers and young leaves can be eaten, and are often added to salads or are boiled and fried.
