Marshmallow leaf dried (organic)
Dried Herb - Marshmallow leaf (organic)
Latin / INCI: Althaea officinalis, L.
Herbalists love Marshmallow for its high content of mucilage, a sticky, tasteless substance that has been found to be very soothing for inflamed skin or mucus membrances. The leaves of Marshmallow tend to have this demulcent effect more on the lungs and urinary tract while the root has more of an affinity on the digestive tract. For a soothing tea add 1 - 2 teaspoons of dried herb to a cup of water and infuse for 10 minutes, strain and drink.
Externally, this herb can be used in poultices or compresses for sore, inflamed skin, such as ulcers, boils and abcess.
