Starting off as a food source used by Chinese, Egyptians, Syrians and as a Roman delicacy, Marshmallow was considered to be the perfect cure for most ailments. It was thought that even a spoonful a day would keep people free from all diseases.
Medieval Arab physicians also used Marshmallow for inflammatory treatment purposes. A high content of sweet-tasting mucilage gives the herb a pain-soothing property, and a thirst-quenching flavour once infused in hot water. The boiled water brings out a gel from the herb, that coats the throat and stomach once drank. The plant has long been used for sore throats, coughs, colds and asthma. Itís just that modern, man-made remedies have made us forget the benefits of such a powerfully effective, flavourful herb! And letís face it, most man-made medicines taste disgusting!
Marshmallow Leaf is a great herb to drink after a hard days work. Relax and unwind, let your taste buds be soothed! (Marshmallow Root can also be drank as an infusion, and tastes more like hot Ribena. Again, this aids inflammation and sore throats)
