Known throughout the ancient Egyptian, Arab, Greek, and Roman cultures, and used continually for at least 2000 years, 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 confectionery.
Marshmallow root provides natural mucilage that supports, soothes, and moistens mucous membranes of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary tracts.
