The Marshmallow plant - Used for hundreds of years to help treat infections, ease coughs and improve digestion.
The Marshmallow plant is available from the Maitri dispensary. It's been used for hundreds of years to help treat infections, ease coughs and improve digestion.
While you probably associate the name with the tasty snack perfect for toasting over an open fire, Marshmallow, in particular the root of the plant, has a number of proven health benefits.
Both the leaf and root can be used to ease pain and swelling of the mucous membranes that line the respiratory tract, easing symptoms of the common cold and flu. Both can also be applied to soothe dry coughs, diarrhoea and constipation.
As with all of our herbs, Marshmallow from the Maitri dispensary is carefully selected and prepared by our experienced team of herbalists.
