Marshmallow Root
Althaea officinalis L.
1 ounce

Marshmallow Root has been used historically to treat inflammation and ulcers and for health of the digestive tract, to relieve irritation of the mouth and throat. Helps with bronchitis and asthma. Makes a soothing gargle for a sore throat and can be mixed with slippery elm for a stronger effect.

References to marshmallow root as a healing herb are found in Homer's Iliad, written over 2,800 years ago. Its genus name Althaea comes from the Greek altho, to cure, and its order name, Malvaceae, is derived from the Greek malake, soft Marshmallow root was widely used in traditional Greek medicine.

The use of the herb spread from Greece to Arabia and India, where it became an important herb in the Ayurvedic and Unani healing traditions.

Typical Preparations:

Cold macerations, warm infusions, tincture, and fluid extract or capsulation.


Specific: Should be taken with at least 250 mL (8 oz) of liquid. Orally administered drugs should be taken 1 hour before use or several hours after, as marshmallow may slow the absorption.
