Marshmallow root is valued for its soothing and protecting mucilage and is used in teas, syrups, poultices, ointments and lozenges.

Suggested Use

To prepare as a tea, add 1-2 teaspoons of herb to 8 oz. water in a pot. Cover and simmer for 15-30 minutes, strain and serve immediately.

For a tea, an infusion is made with a teaspoon of herb to one cup of cool water. The mixture is left to infuse for an hour or more.

To make marshmallow syrup, add four ounces of marshmallow root to one quart of water and simmer over low heat until the liquid is reduced by half. Then strain to remove the spent herbs. Add one cup of honey (or other sweetener if preferred) to the concentrated tea and warm together until thoroughly mixed. A couple of drops of essential oil (such as peppermint or orange) can be added to the finished syrup as flavoring. Bottle the finished syrup and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

As a soothing internal botanical*, marshmallow is used in throat formulas and in herbal teas. Marshmallows demulcent action makes it a beneficial ingredient in syrups, lozenges, teas and throat sprays. Marshmallow root makes a soothing and drawing poultice or ointment.

In skin care, marshmallow is used as an emollient. It can be added to creams and lotions. The powdered root can be moistened and mixed with oatmeal, tied into a cloth and used to wash the skin.

Because it's a perennial herb and easy to grow, consider using marshmallow as a substitute for slippery elm bark. (Slippery elm harvest can damage or destroys the trees if not done correctly. Wild slippery elm, while not currently endangered, is on the United Plant Savers watch list, due to habitat loss, potential over-harvesting and susceptibility to Dutch elm disease.)

Warnings

The Botanical Safety Handbook* classifies marshmallow as:

Class: 1 herbs which can be safely consumed when used appropriately

Per the German Commission E Monograph** for marshmallow root, there are no known contraindications, side effects or drug interactions. However, it is noted that, “The absorption of other drugs taken simultaneously may be delayed.”

iHerb Customer Reviews
 

This product is recommended by Philip Weeks in his book Painful Bladder Syndrome.

Posted by iHerb Customer on Feb 06, 2018 | Verified Purchase

He states, "there are a number of ways to encourage the body to regenerate and repair the GAG layer of the bladder. Not every approach will work for everyone, although I have found that marshmallow root is almost always well tolerated and incredibly useful. I usually prescribe it in tea, as opposed to capsules and tincture form." "Marshmallow has demulcent qualities, meaning that it contains active constituents that have a soothing and rebuilding effect on mucous membrane." This product seems to be making a difference for my daughter. She has autism and is non verbal so I can only go by her behaviors, and each week the frequency of urination is less and she is sleeping well and extremely happy.

Thanks for your feedback!

It works

It definately soothed the bladder but it is a diuretic which I don't need as I go too much already. I have 1 cup a day then have a break from it for a few days...

Thanks for your feedback!

Okay but I don't love the flavor

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jan 14, 2018 | Verified Purchase

I brew this because I feel like I should, not because I particularly enjoy it. It's not gross but it's not delicious either. I bought it for hydration and I suppose it probably does its job in that sense. For that reason I'd recommend this product.

Thanks for your feedback!

Perfect

Looks and smells nice

I use this organic herb in a mix with other herbs to make a cleansing tea to cleanse out my one kidney. I hope I can raise my kidney function with this mixture. What I do not like about it is the aluminum package. That’s why I give only four stars

Thanks for your feedback!
