Certified Organic Marshmallow Leaf Althaea Officinalis Dried Herb 1 oz
Althaea officinalis L.
Plant Family: Malvaceae
Marshmallow leaf and root continue to provide relief for irritations, internally and externally. In traditional folk healing practices it was given to soothe and moisten mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts, and also as an external soothing poultice for wounds and burns. This plant has been used in beverages, desserts, candies, cosmetic creams, and was the "root" of the original marshmallow confectionary.
Excellent in soothing irritated tissues. The tea of leaf and flower as a superb gargle, and a cold infusion of the root to soothe the throat.
The leaves are diuretic and expectorant, and are used to relieve lung dryness and to soothe the urinary tract.
The dried leaf or root made into a tea. The root is best as a cold infusion or a decoction. This enables the extraction of mucilage. Leaf or root as a poultice.
