Who would believe that the mucilaginous root of this common herb was the original marshmallow, the sticky, sugary concoction that kids love to skewer on a stick and roast over an open fire? Our pioneers parents cooked the root with honey or sugar, formed it into soft balls, and gave it to their children to suck on to soothe a sore throat.
Its primary use in modern herbal medicine is to relieve sore throat, but it also relieves perianal inflammation (when taken orally) caused by severe diarrhea.
The great demulcent and emollient properties of Marsh Mallow make it useful in inflammation and irritation of the alimentary canal, and of the urinary and respiratory organs.
