What Marshmallow herb Is:

No, the plant doesn't grow puffy white blobs of creamy goo that are good for toasting. Nor does it sprout little yellow "peeps" around Easter. There's no actual marsh-mallow in commercially sold marshmallow treats. Real marshmallow, native to Europe and also found in various parts of the United States, is so named because It's a member of the mallow family and tends to favor a marshy habitat. It is a tall herb with short serrated leaves, pale lavender flowers, and a flattened round fruit that looks like a presliced cake. The leaves and particularly the tough but pliable roots are the parts most often used medicinally. The genus name comes from a Greek word meaning "to heal." Our ancient ancestors billed all mallows as cures for just about any affliction.

Marshmallow has a reputation has a soothing, healing plant. It has demulcent, emollient, diuretic, anti-inflammatory and expectorant actions.
